Weber Q control setting

My Weber Q does not have any markings on the gas control knobs to indicate the roast setting. So my question is where should I set the knob to? Also do I have to have both the burners on?

From memory you leave both burners on for first 20 mins. The roast setting is about 1 quarter of the way between low and high, but play around with it as I like to do some things a bit hotter. Download the user manual to verify as its chock full of pics and info.

Captain Cook talks of "Strokes down" , As in Three strokes down for this or that.
Search out his Weber Q Cookbook on the net.
However, Surely Low Med & High is evident?

mate buy a good temp gauge it will be the best thing you ever did for your cooking and you will soon wonder how you ever did without it
Something with an ambient and food probe believe me you will never look back.
The Maverick series are great

If i can remember correctly from roasts i've done, I put the outer ring on high and set up a trivet sitting on alfoil with some holes in it.

I put my meat on the trivet once the temp gets to about 200c. Turn the nob back to about halfway.

I like to cook my beef for about 3 hours at 160-170c (depending on the size). I probe it and take it off when I want.

But basic thing is to use indirect heat (just the outer ring)
