There are also two methods of cooking; direct and indirect cooking methods.
Direct Cooking - This method of cooking is good for searing and cooking foods that take less than 25 minutes to cook. Examples are steaks, hamburgers, and chops. Food is placed directly above the heat source and must be turned halfway through the cooking time to expose both sides to the heat.
Indirect Cooking - This method of cooking is good larger cuts of meat and all foods that require longer cooking times and low temperatures. Think ribs, roasts and the like. Foods are cooked by reflected heat, similar to a conventional oven. This allows juicier meats without having to turn the food and without danger of burning. This method can ONLY be used in a covered grill.
Charcoal or Gas? Both great choices - pick the one that is right for you. Come and see us today. We have a wide variety of gas or charcoal grills and smokers.
