First off... Always have an area with no coals to move food to that is cooking too fast.

Second: You probably have too many coals on the grill.

Third: If you are always cooking direct, think about not having the lid on the grill.

Forth: Buy Raichlen's "How to Grill". (I was not a fan of his until I bought this book)

This works best for me. I usually do enough for the family and lunch the next day if not more and even on a 22 ¬Ĺ" kettle, I don't have enough room for a 3 zone fire. There's always the middle ground if you need it.

Alway keep this area to your right as you are looking at the grill. You never, ever want to find yourself moving to the left. This will create havoc in your world and will do nothing but frustrate you as you watch the rest of the world prosper while all you can do is complain.

Remember...to the right. :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

4. Off topic posts will not be tolerated in the cooking sections. The moderators will watch how threads develop and if off topic posts start, they will be deleted! The moderators will notify the deleted person privately to let them know what has taken place. There will be no second-guessing of the administrator or the moderators under any circumstances in regards to post deletions!!. These are sections (General BBQ, Grilling, and Pit Mods..Etc) that people are really looking for help in so the off-topic stuff needs to be curtailed.

Smokehouse, Just like Finney said, fire, no fire. I keep the fire to the left and the right and no fire in the middle.

Actually, I do too, but that's because I'm right handed and my Platinum's lid stores on the left side ~ Sooooo, which hand do you use???
