Pat Wilson says:

It mentions indirect heat, does this mean you place pieces off flame?

Meridian Meats says:

Hi Pat! indirect heat is cooking on the cooler side of the grill. When the lid is on your grill and you place your food away from the heat source, the grill acts like an oven. It’s a great way to cook if your food has high sugar content, like sweet potatoes!
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
