cooking a smaller meal on a large grill?


Bought a large grill because I entertain large groups on occasion, but how do I conserve charcoal when I'm just cooking for myself? I was thinking of making my own little fire ring that i'll put in the grill so that the chimney kind of effect will continue instead of the heat spreading? Any ideas?

  1. You can offset with charcoal on one end. I'd suggest, however, that you just get a Weber Smokey Joe for a couple of steaks or burgers. They cost $30 or less and last forever. I write on grilling/smoking. Not associated with any company. But, I'd rather do a small grill and clean up when it's just a couple of people.
