    As surprising as it is, I've actually never grilled anything for myself before. I've cooked stuff in oven plenty of times though. Anyway, I've got some pork chops and I want to try grilling them, the cooking instructions say:

    Pre-heat the grill to a medium heat. Lightly brush the meat with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 15-20 minutes turning occasionally.

    What exactly does it mean by 'medium heat'? On my cooker (which has an oven below including the grill), there are two dials, one is for turning on the oven/grill, the other dial is for the temperature. What temperature do I set to for 'medium heat'?

    and do I always put the rack on the highest shelf for grilling?

    For pork chops I'd probably set it to 180 degrees or so. Yes use the highest rack and crack the oven open slightly to let the smoke out and the air in.
