If you want to improve your grilling skills, there is one important rule: keep the lid closed.
If you keep the lid open, the grill will lose heat and your food will have to be grilled for longer. If you keep the lid closed, your Weber grill can do exactly what it was designed for: grill! Keep the heat in the grill, the food will be grilled faster and tastier.
Controlling the flare-up is a great advantage when grilling with the lid closed. Weber grills are designed and constructed to prevent flare-ups.
