I like my burners running from the control panel (Front) to the rear of the grill. Let's call it vertically.
VS. burners that have control knobs on the side and the burners run from right to left. (Horizontal)
Summits run from knob to back.
Genesis run from right to left.
It just makes more sense to to work on a grill that is laid
out like a stove. ie. The knob controls the burner directly behind it.
My old Kenmore has six front ot back burners.
Indirect is a cake walk.
I can fire the outside 2 on high and the next 2 inner on med or low, with the 2 middle off and control the heat to withing 10* of where I want it.
On a grill, that's near perfect control.
(Just wish it would get a little hotter on high)
That's what the Kettle's for.
