Also, you can configure your grill burners for indirect heating or change temperatures in different areas for multi-purpose cooking. With multiple burners, you’ll be able to cook meat on high, while cooking veggies on medium to low heat, then have a low-temperature zone for keeping freshly cooked food warm.
