Grilling Tips From Daddy Natty:

1. For direct cooking on a charcoal grill, make sure there is enough charcoal to extend into a single layer 1 to 2 inches beyond the area of the food on the grill. Pout briquettes into the grill to determine the quantity, then stack into a pyramid for lighting. For indirect cooking, food is placed over a drip pan and the briquettes are banked either to one or both sides of the pan.
