Depends on what I'm grilling.
Sometimes yes, sometimes no.
If you are going to be a grill master you need to know how to operate your grilling equipment in conjunction with what you will be grilling!!!

Fortunately, those who do not close the lid make it easy for those of us who do to smugly revel in our superiority.

3-5 minutes, how thin are the steaks you cook? 3-5 minutes and the steak would still be cold with the slabs I buy.

yes, with my Holland grill I have to keep the lid closed or it will never heat up.

Yup. I prefer my steaks to be at LEAST an inch thick.

Take the meat out of the fridge at least 30 min before you grill it.

Shut the lid.

Yes

It depends on what I'm grilling, but the lid is closed far more than it's open.





I liken it to a coal fired oven. Generally speaking, I don't cook with my oven door open either. And even here, depending on what I'm doing, there are exceptions.



EDIT: The lid is up for anything that's the outdoor equivalent of cooking on my stove-top, in the kitchen.

I stayed at a vacation house that had a Holland.  Holy shit, that thing sucked to try to use for the first time. We were pissed and dinner took like 3 hours to cook.

You guys must eat cheap cardboard thin steaks.

 



I like my steak medium rare and they usually take about 12-14 mins starting at 600 degrees for the sear then letting it cool down to 400-450 as it cooks.

Cold? The steaks should start at room temperature.

+1. No shit. Even cooking inside in a 500 degree oven (after searing on a raging hot cast iron skillet for 30 seconds on each side), my normal 1-1.5" steaks are 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare. It takes a bit longer on my grill, because it's hard to keep charcoal that damned hot. And if I'm cooking a real slab of a steak, it's longer still.



So...that's 1 minute on the burner (which was sitting on a high flame for like 10 minutes before the steak ever touched it), and 4 minutes total in a 500F oven. 5 minutes. Medium-rare.



The only way I'd end up with medium well, would be to use thin steaks not suitable for grilling (i.e. - something I'd use as fajita meat, or whatever).
