    Heat is heat, so you're probably looking at something like a gasser on medium flame or a bit higher. Coals should last at least a couple of hours for direct grilling. Plenty of time to do corn, steaks etc. If you're cooking for a party over several hours just add more coals (unlit is ok).

    One more thing - unlike a gasser the coals are however hot they are, so if you have the space, push the coals to one side so there's some area of he grill that's indirect heat. That will let you move things off the direct flame if they need to cook more but you don't want them over the flame.
