Gas grills I have owned, including a Weber and a Ducane among others, all tell you to cook with the lid closed. Of course, you'd have to read the manual to know that.

I never been one to play by the rules, I take a manual with a grain of salt, to me common sense is used more, and everybody needs to follow theirs... It's not really rocket science, for most of us, people just need to spread their wings and go for it... Cooking is a beautiful, satisfying, thing for everyone... JMO XOXO

....but, but, but, mimiz...you DID say "...people just need to spread their wings and go for it" lol

...when grilling vegetables on a charcoal grill, never, never, never cover with the lid. My uncle chuck did that and the veggies tasted so potently of lighter fluid and smoke that we had to throw them all out...yuk!

Uncle Chuck should have let the fire burn off the lighter fluid before he started cooking. the closed lid wasn't the reason.
