Default Steak Grilling Question - Lid Up, or Lid Down?

Do you guys grill a steak with the lid on the grill up, or the lid down?

Put me down for down too. Keeps flair ups to a minimum.

Used to grill steaks with the lid off on my Weber OTG 22.5" but for the last couple of years I grill with it down or on. I put the steaks directly over the coals for 2.5 minutes then do a quarter turn for the diamond marks for another 2.5 minutes, then repeat for the other side for 1" to 1.5" thick steaks. End result is a good "medium" cooked steak.

It's just personal preference.
If your grill or cooker can put out a lot of Btu's, then leave the lid open...obviously it's
easier to see what's going on that way.

If your grill or cooker doesn't get real hot...then close it.

I worked as a cook in many restaurants and never had any lid or cover for the
broiler or grill. Of course the broiler would put out a lot of Btu's and get very hot.
If somebody ordered a steak Well Done; we usually put it in the Microwave oven
for a few minutes as it was going to be ruined anyway; then put it on the broiler
to get some grill marks on it. That way it sped up the cooking time.

Lid down on the gasser, egg and kettles. Sometimes if waiting on time I 'll leave the lid up on the gasser, just to slow everything down a bit!
