2-zone grilling is another one of those GRATE DUH moments for me! I had the pleasure

of getting into a long conversation with Chris Finney the fellow who is widely credited with popularizing the reverse sear method for large cuts of meat. During our conversation he asked if I ever separated the GrillGrates on my grill to create a hot zone and a not so hot zone? Duh! That would be no!
That night I put 2 GrillGrates to the left, 3 to the right and the gap was about 1” between them. I used my infrared gun to measure the temps at the GrillGrates and was floored by the extreme difference in temps I was able to achieve on my trusty old Charbroil grill.

I used to have challenges grilling vegetables at the same time I grill steaks or burgers because they get grilled hot! Asparagus really doesn’t grill well at 650F! Now I reduce the one side of my grill to low or off and have the other side hot as I need it.
We regularly roast corn, peppers, sweet potatoes, beets- you get the idea!
Please share your experience with 2-zone or any other creative ways to use GrillGrates!
