Fan with grill

    My wife always grills with the fan in the oven on, and the oven door
    slightly open which is required. I was grilling some lamb the other
    evening & wondered whether there is any advantage, maybe even a
    disadvantage to using the fan while grilling, since the door's a bit
    open & the heat is actually being blown OUT rather than around within
    a sealed environment. I'm sure she uses the logic that it works
    better (cooks more evenly) with the oven so it should with the grill
    too. However with the grill you're turning the meat over unlike in
    the oven, so there's not even such a need for the evenness of heat

    Anyone know for sure?
