What's the difference between grilling and BBQing?

When it comes to cooking on your new grill, there's a difference between barbecuing and grilling. Barbecuing is low heat and slow cooking, while grilling is high heat for a short period of time. Here are some tips:

Barbecuing: If you’re cooking something for 18 minutes or longer, you should use the indirect method (barbecuing). Set the first burner to medium, the second to off, and the third to medium. Put your food in the center over the burner that's off, then close the cover. This will create a convection oven, keeping the temperature at exactly 350◦.

Grilling: If you’re cooking something that takes less than 18 minutes to cook, like a steak, hamburger, or hot dog, use the direct method (grilling). Turn all the burners on high. When the grill is up to the proper temperature, put your food directly on the grates. But remember, all grilling should be done with the cover closed for maximum performance.
