    Grilling Tip:
    There are two ways to grill - directly or indirectly. Direct grilling is the most basic method, where foods are placed on grill directly over the heat source.
    For indirect grilling, the heat source is off to the side of where the cooking takes place. To grill indirectly using a gas grill, turn the burner on one side on and cook on the other side. Likewise, with a charcoal grill, have heated coals on one side and cook on the other side.
