Grilling: Direct vs. Indirect Heat

If you’ve been grilling for even a little while, you’ve likely heard the terms “direct and indirect” cooking. Simply put, these are really the only two ways to grill, and knowing what to do when can make a huge difference to your grilling success. Grilling can be very intimidating to many, but a grill is really just an oven and stove that is outside, that’s it. If you can make a pizza or roast chicken inside, you can make a pizza or roast a chicken outside – it’s just all in the set up. So watch the video and try it at home yourself. This can literally open a whole new world of outdoor cooking for you, and at this time of year, why not?
