Recommendations for a "grilling bible" for beginners?

The wife and I got a gas grill a while back, but have procrastinated with actually starting to use it, since we'd like to learn to use it properly first. What are the best grilling resources you know?

We'd like to learn everything from preparing the food and condiments to grilling the stuff to equipment maintenance. We're not helpless in the kitchen, but on the grilling front we really need some pointers to get good at it without wasting a lot of good meat in the process.
Grilling/BBQ seems like a topic where a lot of people have a lot of strong and often contradictory opinions, not necessarily entirely based on solid information. So in an effort to avoid a bunch of silly mistakes and ruined meals, we turn to Ask MeFi for guidance: can you recommend clear, authoritative literature or web sites that can take us from BBQ beginners to (semi-)pros?
(I like the approach that Serious Eats takes in cutting through BS with extensive experimentation. Intellectual rigor preferred over old wives' tales where possible.)
