Grilling is perfect for cooking everything from hamburgers and hot dogs to tender brisket to roasted whole chickens—and the way you use a grill can have a dramatic effect on how your food turns out. Direct grilling, which exposes food to high heat, is perfect for burgers and steaks, while indirect grilling, which surrounds food with lower, indirect heat, is optimal for smoked foods and tender meat that falls off the bone.
