How to use the Indirect Cooking Method on your Barbecue

Posted

For chicken, game, turkey, roasts, ham, vegetables, breads or combinations, the indirect cooking method gives great results every time. With this method of cooking, the food is above the unlit burner therefore not directly over the flame but instead to one side. Indirect heat cooks the food oven-style and there is little need to turn the food. You can place the food directly on the grids or in a cooking pan.

For models with 3 burners, place the food on the center cooking grid and turn off the center burner, so that only the left or right burners are providing heat. For models with two burners, place the food on the right cooking grid and turn off the right burner, so that only the left burner is providing heat. Use a similar method for models with four burners.
