Question questions on how to use grill mats.

not quite sure if this is the right forum to post this on, but am just wondering if anyone can give me a hand with this. my mother's one of those types who like to order things out of catalogs to give to people, and she got me a pair of those Yoshi copper grill & bake mats that you see on TV, cause i do a lot of grilling. i figured i'd give em a try, see how they worked. but the instructions say not to use em over a direct flame. now, while it explains how to do that with charcoal grills, by letting the coals burn down to where they arent flaming, it doesnt explain how to do it with a gas grill. should i just use it for indirect cooking in a gas grill, and keep it on the side of the grill away from the lit burner? or do gas grills not count as "direct flame" because of the flavorizer bars over the burners?

I just used grill mats this weekend for the first time. I have a Weber Genesis and put the mat over a low flame (other side varied from high to low) and I opened the grill a lot. They work well and even produce grill marks. I found the mats particularly helpful for when you want something (in my case veggies) to cook in a sauce.

Heat up your BBQ grill and ensure that the metal grate is in position.
Place one grill mat over the grate. ...
Ensure you do not layer your BBQ grilling mats, and that you maintain a single thickness.
Add your foods directly on top of the hot grill mat.
