Cook with indirect heat and take your time. Grilling isn't a race its an art, a passion if you will. Take your time and you'll be glad you did.

I can tell you that the #1 secret to becoming a grillmaster is marinade. It will take anything to a whole new level! Of course, there are a million different marinades out there so you have to know what you're going for.

And then there's the age long debate; charcoal or propane?

I like the taste of charcoal but I use propane at the moment because of convenience. When I have the money and room though, I want to get a Big Green Egg. They're supposed to be the shhitttteeeee. :)
I prefer charcoal but BBQ with gas for the most part...

i prefer charcoal...last summer i had a charcoal grill, and i don't wanna brag, but i mastered the damn thing. i had it down.

for a wedding present, my wife's uncles pitched in and got us an amazing gas grill. its really a thing of beauty. but i haven't quite mastered it yet....never owned a gas grill before and it takes some getting used to.

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.

Id rather eat my neighbor's dog, although I would need about 12-15 of them to even fill me up. I hate those dogs.

mean shish kabobs on the grill

chop or slice bite sized chunks of

beef or chicken
zucchini
mushrooms
red onion
pineapple
grape tomatos
potatos (might need to be boiled or nuked first to soften somewhat)
bell peppers (red,yellow,green)
(anything else you like!)

marinate all of this for a few hours (atleast) in a good balsamic vinaigrette.

Cook covered on low heat until meat is cooked through and veggies are tender, then flame up the grill to crispify everything a little bit. Season to taste with garlic salt and lemon pepper.

They're extremely easy to make and taste delicious. At parties you can let people make up their own custom skewers with whatever stuff they like. It's pretty cheap also.

all right i could tell just by reading all these, non of you are actually grill master. Carcol in the little biscits, thats rookie material, me being grill master JR. knows that if you really want to go for flavor, there is a actual realwood charcol. It's called Cowboy Brand Realwood Charcol. That stuff is the real deal. If you guys even need a killer recipe for an amazing shredded chicken sandwich just ask me some time. I even made my own logo for it.
