How to Indirect Cook on the Flavor Pro

Indirect cooking is a great method for grilling chicken, fish, steaks that you want to reverse sear and more. The basic rule is, if it’s a delicate food or a food that can overcook quickly, indirect cooking is the way to go. It is also the method you use for roasting and baking.

Indirect cooking is super easy on the Flavor Pro. You can do it with gas or by using the Flavor Drawer. 

Indirect Cooking with Gas

Indirect cooking with gas is a simple process of only turning on half or less of the gas burners. To set up indirect cooking with gas, turn the two leftmost or rightmost burners on high, ignite them, and then turn down to the desired temperature. Medium or medium low is a good place to start. 

Allow your grill to preheat for 5 minutes or more and then add the food that you want to cook to the side of the grill furthest away from the burners. Using a grilling glove, adjust your smokestacks for the desired airflow.

Indirect Cooking with the Flavor Drawer 

The Flavor Drawer is a great tool for indirect cooking. The process is much the same as indirect cooking with gas. Simply add your charcoal or wood products to either the rightmost or leftmost Wood Product Zone. (You can also add some to the middle Wood Product Zone if desired. 

Remember do NOT add lighter fluid to the charcoal or wood. 

Turn the burners under the Wood Product Zones with the charcoal or wood to high and ignite. Allow the gas to ignite the fuel and then turn off the gas burners.  

Allow your grill to preheat for 5 minutes or more and then add the food that you want to cook to the side of the grill furthest away from the burners. Using a grilling glove, adjust your smokestacks for the desired airflow.

Indirect cooking is a great method for baking, roasting and cooking more delicate foods. Thanks to the Flavor Drawer and the Flavor Pro’s four gas burners, indirect cooking is easier than ever!
