Are you trying to get it closer than that?
Not smart a$$ at all. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I should have gotten off my butt and measured the thing instead of sitting here and holding my thumb and finger apart for the estimate. Now that I have done that, I see my cooking grill is actually 5" from the charcoal grill, so yes, I guess I'm trying to get them a little closer. I like to do steaks really hot and fast. John Setzler invented a expanded metal thing to use for this on his CharGriller Kamado, which is perfect, except .... I don't have a CGK.
