Expert Tips

When grilling over indirect heat, food is cooked away from the heat. If using coals, arrange them around the edge of the firebox, and place a drip pan under the grilling area. If using a dual-burner gas grill, heat only one side, and place the food under the burner that is not lit. For single-burner gas grills, place food in a foil tray or on several layers of aluminum foil and use low heat.

Use maple-flavored syrup or honey for the real maple syrup in the marinade.
