I don't quite understand all I know about gas grilling, but as I understand it the gas burner is used only to heat up the lava rocks and then turned off before the food is added. Its actually the heat from the lava rocks that cooks the food. True or false?
you need the burner going all the time. however, if you didn't have the rocks or some other way to even out the heat, all you'd have is a literal ring of fire and only about half the cooking surface gets hot.
i'll use propane if i want ease of cooking, and hardwood charcoal if i'm doing something quality. the cost doesn't justify something that's going to get left out in the rain.
I'm always right. The sooner you realize this, the easier things will be.

I picked up a CharBroil RED infrared grill at the end of last summer. It is great for just about anything short of slow cooking stuff. 1" steaks done to medium in eight minutes, burgers done super fast, etc etc. the only thing I haven't tried yet is fish fillets. The only things I have over-done so far were a few sausages one day and a few pork chops another.
It is easy to slow cook if you understand the settings- they actually work. We cook fish 2-3 times a week and keep it on foil. Perfect everytime.
