I'm new to this and am currently experimenting before I use my grill to entertain guests. If I am roasting a chicken for example and need to add more briquettes during roasting, what would be the best way to do this please. I would be trying to maintain the required roasting temperature.
 
Welcome to the forum @dmoyes 🍻

I don't have much experience cooking with a charcoal grill, hopefully someone else can chime in
 
Just wanted to bump this thread and see if anyone had any suggestions?

Not sure which charcoal grill you have but I bought a hinged grate for my Weber 22" kettle. It allows you to lift up a section of the grill to do just what you are asking. This is the one I have for my kettle.

Otherwise - not sure how you would do it except to have someone else [carefully] list up the entire grate while you add in the briquettes needed.
 
Hinged grate is the way to go. I personally like the ones designed to work with a slow n sear. Bigger hinge easier access.
