KInd of a novice question but on a 4 burner gas grill and i want to indirectly grill do i light the two end burners or the two left or right burners?

I have been doing the 2 left burners and placing the food on the right side and i got to thinking today that maybe i should be lighting the two end burners instead or am i thinking too much?

So do 2 ends or 1 side?

I think you should shut the two middle burners off..and light the out side burners on each side of center... :D

If you are doing something like BCC at temps higer than 300, turn off the two middle burners. If you are trying to cook at a low temp (below 250, like with a brisket or pork shoulder), you probably won't be able to have two burners on and still keep the temp low enough. In that case, just turn on one burner. You will probably have to experiment a little to get the temps right.

Seattle, It is definitly the two outside burners. I tried indirect grilling lighting the two right burners and it took quite awhile to cook as well as it did not cook evenly.
