Whats the difference between Direct and Indirect cooking?

Direct cooking is simply grilling foods directly over the heat source. For Indirect cooking the heat source is placed to the side of the food, not directly under it. As a general rule, foods that take less than 25 minutes to cook, like boneless chicken breasts, pork chops, and steak, are grilled by the Direct Method.Foods that require longer cooking times at lower temperatures, like whole birds and roasts, should be cooked by the Indirect Method. You can use either method on both Weber charcoal grills and Weber gas grills. For complete instructions, see Direct/Indirect Cooking instructions.
