Thanks for the info. It's a fairly old grill and, based on your description, I'm pretty sure it's not performing at peak efficiency I did grill a porterhouse on it yesterday, which came out beautifully seared and cooked medium-rare, just like we like it I really think the meat thermometer is the key.
