Direct Grilling Technique

For roasts, ribs, ham, whole chicken, turkey, game or whole fish. To use the indirect heat method, turn on one side of the burner, then place food on the cooking grid over the side of the burner that’s not lit.

Indirect Grilling Technique

Indirect (use of water pan)

An aluminum foil pan is centered on the briquettes to moderate the temperature and to add moisture and flavor. Fill the pan with water or other ingredients, (add to water; wine, apple juice, orange juice, herbs, spices, etc). The cooking juices from the food drop into the water pan creating a savory water vapor from which the foods absorb flavor and moisture.

Poultry, lamb, beef and pork tastes more of themselves when spit-roasted. Meat is rotated over the heat keeping it constantly bathed in its own juices, insuring that all sides become done at one time. A drip pan can be used to collect the drippings for basting or gravy.
