Questions from new kettle owner
Last weekend I bought a Performer. This is my first charcoal grill. Before I owned gas grills. I have some basic questions about using my kettle.
1. How much charcoal so I use when starting the grill? The amount to grill (direct heat), not to smoke or indirect heat.
2. After the grill is lit, and I'm waiting for the coals to get hot, do I leave the lid opened or closed?
