    I moved into my first place with a deck a few weeks ago, and the first thing I bought was one of the new Weber's with the little pitcher thing that catches all the ash. It is pretty sweet, i've probably grilled out at least 7 or 8 times already.

    One question I have is should you cook your meat with the top of the grill up or down? Does it even matter? I've experimented with both but I haven't noticed much of a difference yet, except when I leave the top down for a few minutes the meat will occassionally stick to the surface.

      I usually grill on low heat with the top down since I prefer my meat to be cooked all the way through. It takes longer, but it works for me.

      I don't know if having the top up or down really matters except for how well done you want something cooked. Not really sure though.

        as far as i can tell, top down is better at lower temp, because it holds the heat in and cooks through better. at higher heats the top being down will help prevent flare ups on most grills.

        *shrug* i cook top down because i think it helps keep the middle of the meat cooking at relatively the same rate as the outside.

          Having the top down creates convection as I recall, makes for more even cooking.

            assuming, of course, you have a worthwhile grill.

              Like Vince, I prefer charcoal but use propane due to convience.

                  I got a new propane one recently, works pretty well.

                        My secret is slowcooking...the longer you cook it the better it tastes. Charcoal>gas

                          sure, but why eat spam when you could have prime rib?

                          (currently, i can afford neither)

                              ha..seriously! :shock: It truely is a thing of beauty though.

                              I think I'll stcik to my dream of someday getting a big green egg grill, they're much more reasonable and are suppossed to work great (and last forever).
