    If you say so...

    Okay, I usually avoid this "tell us something about yourself" section of forums because it doesn't seem very interesting, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to have quite a few questions in upcoming months and I want to be fair, so here goes:
    I am a retired (very) teacher/school principal living in the Southern California mountains. I decided that I wanted to do something new (getting pretty bored with the current situation) and I bought a Weber Spirit ll 2 E 210. Because I live by myself, it just didn't make sense (at least to me) to buy a larger, three burner grill. So now I'm trying to figure out how to use the two burner to get the best indirect heat. I'm going to post a question in the rotisserie forum (if I can find it) and I am looking forward to learning lots about all kinds of gas grilling techiniques.

      Thanks. I just went there and posted what may be a hare-brained idea.

    Welcome to The Pit from SE Michigan! You're definitely asking questions in the right place. if there is any way to get something cooked right, there are experts, finaglers, tweakers and just plain curious cooks who can help you out. I can't help out with gas grills, but there'll be someone showing up soon who can. Best of luck!

      Welcome from Maryland. It is going to be difficult with the two burner as you have probably already found out. We have a 3 burner Spirit and just barely accomplish some indirect cooking on it. If you could make a baffle to protect one side from the radiant heat of the other burner then it might improve.

        Thanks. I just posted an idea on the rotisserie forum. Wondering if it might work or if it will burn up my grill.

                          the good one grill
                          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
