Which side of the cast iron grates should be facing up when grilling?

Written byAlycia from Weber
The wider, flat side of the cooking grates should be facing upwards for cast iron grates. The underside is more pointed like the top of a triangle. There are four small legs in each corner on the underside of the grate to ensure a level cooking surface.
