chicken tenders

Hi All,
I'm planning on chicken tenders on skewers tonight. Seperate skewers with veggies. Lurking through past posts, it looks like I should aim for 350* with a raised grid. Should this be direct or indirect? I'm assuming it won't take long to cook this, with frequent turning. So my question is, do I cook it with the dome open? Just open when turning? Do you ever cook with the dome open?

    Direct, dome open only when turning.

  • I do cook with the dome open from time to time, but not when grilling chicken skewers. (It's hard to stir fry in a wok w/a closed dome.Lol) When I do hanger steak, I put a cast iron skillet on the grid until screaming hot, then I open the dome and cook the steak in the skillet. It gets a nice crust all over and I can ensure that it stays quite rare in the middle.
  • Thanks to both! Looking forward to dinner.....
