    Burgers, open since they cook pretty quickly. Steak however is a totally different story, slow cooked and covered in a Webber :D

    We talking gas/charcoal/wood?

    +1, but I flip at the end a second time to let any grease drip off prior to adding cheese.

    Closed, usually around 300*. I'll have to try the higher temp method.

    My grill is a gas, with cast iron cooking surfaces.

    I only have a gas grill and I grill burgers on med temp w/lid closed. I'm also in the only flip once camp. If the temp is too hot then you'll get lots of flare ups.

    PS- this thread is making me hungry.... might have to makes some burgers for dinner :)

    Both ways. I notice the smoke flavor is more intense when cooking open. Doesn't make sense to me, seems like the smoke being kept in with the lid closed would make more flavor.

    While the Angus isn't bad, I'd hardly call it comparable to a grilled meat slab done at your own home.......

    I only grill steaks. They reopened a new Albertsons here in Mandeville north of New Orleans with awesome prices on steaks.
    A fellow at work suggested first sealing the steaks on both sides on a hot frying pan, then transfering them to the barbeque with the lid closed for some slow cooking.
    It works for me.

    I usually sear the steaks for about a minute per side on high heat on the grill, then turn the grill down to medium/medium-low and continue cooking. No need to use a frying pan, and you get the same effect of sealing in the juices.

    I opted for grilled chicken thighs for dinner tonight. Closed, low heat. Add BBQ sauce (Masterpiece Original) during last 5 min. Also threw on some corn, red pepper, zuchini and of course a beer. I can't grill w/out a beer.

    Depends on the fat content of the meat...fatty, pre-made burgers need the top open to contain the grease fire right away. Leaner burgers...close the top until the grease drips down and flares up the flames, then open and flip.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.
