  4. Take orzo, feta, onion and pepper filling and place inside hallowed tomatoes then add a little extra olive oil to top
  5. Start grill (if using gas grill fire up burners and maintain medium-to-high-heat) and use one 1/2 chimney starter filled with wood lump charcoal. Once wood charcoal is grey, empty into grill pit on one side of the grill
  6. Oil grates with paper towel and then place tomatoes (with the sliced tops on top of the tomatoes) on grill at opposite end of the charcoal for indirect grilling
