In this video you will see how to cook with charcoal using the “indirect” heating method.
Almost all of the cooking I do on the weber grill uses indirect heat. This allows me to get some other things done, or relax to a couple of cold drinks without burning dinner.
It will take a lot longer to cook this way but believe me, it will become your favorite way to grill.
I have learned that it is better to spend the few extra dollars on the name brand charcoal and lighter fluid. Kingsford Charcoal seems to give me the most bang for the buck.
