Where can I find really basic tips on how to get started with grilling?

I just bought a big grill for my new backyard but I'm feeling bad that my wife does all the grilling (she's an amazing cook). I'd like to help out more but I don't know where to start. Are there any really basic books on how to get started cooking on a gas grill? Everything I find online is a cesspool of ads or nonsense, so I'm asking here.

It seems like I should know how to cook meats, fish, and veggies on the grill not just to help out with meal prep, but to pass as "one of the guys" at backyard parties.
Ideally, I'm looking for instructions that are fit for someone that has never touched a grill before. I'd like to be able to cook:
- fish (mostly salmon)
- peppers, asparagus, corn
- burgers (most likely turkey)
Like I said, I've never done this before so I'm completely clueless. I don't want to break down and get a "for dummies" book unless I really have to. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
