Change Charcoal Grilling Layouts to Improve Heat Control


Creating heat zones and heat-free zones help you avoid burning food by giving hot areas for searing and warm areas for slower more thorough grilling.
When many of us first started grilling with charcoal we filled up the entire bottom of the grill and proceeded to burn most of the food. This makes the entire grill a high heat zone; most food in this situation will burn on the outside while the inside is still raw. Instead you may want to arrange the charcoal to create different heat zones to increase options.

Blogger Edel Alon has two methods: The first is to simply one side of your grill with charcoal leaving the other half empty. This warm/hot layout is useful when you want to create a quick sear on a piece of meat then move it over to slowly cook through and is useful when grilling chicken.
