We also have a side-burner on the BBQ, but it will use up a lot of the gas tank, won't it?
If you have a gas grill anything like mine, it works fine as an oven too. I've roasted chicken, slow smoked pork butt and ribs, done lots of such cooking on my old Weber Genesis gas grill. Now I have a brand new Napoleon Prestige that I'm still learning how to use, but it will roast just fine on indirect heat.
I would thnk that you can easily maintain 350░ with just a single burner on medium if your grill allows such flexibility, and that doesn't use as much gas as you might think. I've smoked and slow cooked a pork butt for up to 8 hours on less than a 1/4 of a tank. That lets you do roasts without heating up the house, and down here in the summer that's a big deal. The AC works hard enough as it is to keep the house in the low to mid 80's.
