How to Grill with Indirect Heat

When grilling over indirect heat, the food is not cooked directly over the heat source. The covered grill then acts like an oven, so there is no need to turn the food. Use this grilling method for foods that require at least 25 min. of grilling time or foods that are so delicate that direct exposure to the heat source would out, such as roasts, whole chickens, thick steaks, ribs or delicate fish fillets.
