JUST BOUGHT A CLASSIC FROM MY FRIEND, AND THIS IS
THE SECOND TIME I'VE USED IT. PUT 2 RACKS OF RIBS
ON AND WHEN TURNED AFTER 45 MINUTES, ONE RACK WAS
BURNED TO A CRISP. IT WAS THE ONE TOWARD THE BACK
OF THE GRID. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME IF I DID SOMETHING
WRONG?

@ Dean

Which Classic? Some are as much as 20 years old. Was it set up for NG before & are you running it on LP now?
If so, it will get way too hot.
Do you have any parts rusted away? Primarily the drip pan or parts under the drip pan.
Also, keep your meat about 2" from the edge of the cooking surface.
If you can't find the reason yourself, get some help from a dealer if you can, or call Holland.

Hey Dean,
You probably are not aware, but using all caps in your post is considered "yelling".

Hey Dean--this happened to me once. I bought s grill from a private owner. Mine burned stuff on the back of the grill like yours did. After calling Holland, we figured the deflector plate was put in backwards. Take your drip pan out ( you'll have to take off the drain valve) and you'll see a big square steel plate. There's a "bend or flange" in that plate and it should be facing to the rear of the grill. If it's facing to the front, it will cause stuff tu burn in the back. Worth a shot to look.
