    Doesn't matter okie, top grate is a bit warmer but also easier to access[​IMG]

    Unless I have a lot in mine I only use the top rack. I have the gourmet Brinkman and I put 2 vents in the top of it for better temp control. This is a pic of my first one and I added another on the other side. I also installed a thermometer in the top so I know the upper temp

    I always use the top rack as well for ease of use if only using one rack.
