    Hard to know what you mean by 'beyond the basic.' Do you marinate or
    dry rub things before you grill them? Do you add wood chips or soaked
    sprigs of herbs?

    My most frequent grilling is probably chicken: back removed and bird
    flattened; marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and herbs of
    choice (thyme, rosemary, oregano--all fresh); grilled over high for 5
    minutes per side, then moved to cool side of grill; soaked sprigs of
    herbs added to hot lava rocks; cover, cook until done; move back over
    hot side if necessary to color the bird how you like it.

    My "favorite" grilling is not more complex but is more time-
    consuming. Marinate trimmed pork spareribs (regular, not baby backs)
    in soy sauce, sherry, garlic, ginger for a day. Set oven to 225F, put
    ribs in baking pan and pre-cook two hours. Turn grill on low heat and
    add hickory or alder or mesquite wood chips, well soaked in water,
    onto the lava rocks/coals. When they begin to produce smoke, put ribs
    on grill, cover, and cook until done, maybe another 45-60 minutes,
    basting frequently with mixture of melted butter, soy sauce and minced
    garlic. -aem

    I am looking for a process that takes longer than 7 - 15 minutes on the
    grill. I am already marinating steaks, chicken, etc. I have not tried
    wood chips or soaked herbs. I do plan on trying this as it appears to be
    popular. Your favorite method below sounds great and it is the type of
    thing I am looking for in terms of time. A process that I can do on the
    grill and hang outside while it cooks while I have a few drinks while it
    completes.

    I currently do not have any lava rocks in my grill. I am using a
    Char-Broil grill that I got about two years ago. I am not sure where to
    put wood chips or sprigs of herbs in the grill (i.e. under the flames).
    The grill has covers over the flames and the flames are raised a bit.
    This looks like it would be a good one to start with and it sounds good.
    Any advice on where I would put the herbs? I do not have any lava rocks
    in the grill. Again, I am not sure where I would put them or if they would
    be appropriate to put in the grill.

    Wow, this sounds so good! I am going to give this one a try. As I
    mentioned, I am interested in the time-consuming grilling. If you can
    provide advice for where the wood chips should go, that would help a lot.
    My thought is that if I put the wood chips below the flames, the wood
    chips will catch fire no matter how long I let them soak in water. There
    is not really a place above the flames in my grill to put wood chips.

    Aem, thanks for the information!

    I haven't seen that kind of grill recently enough to visualize it so I
    can't tell you exactly. What you're after is smoke. You might try
    this: wrap the soaked herbs or chips in a couple of folds of aluminum
    foil and then poke holes in the top of the package. Place this on top
    of the covers above the flames. The reduced air flow may inhibit
    burning and give you the smolder you want. -aem

    Thanks, I will give that a try. I was checking the charbroil.com web site
    to see if they had any hints for this process. I have not found anything
    yet, but I will give this a try. If it does not work, at least I will
    still eat good.
