    The Grillgrate Difference = FAIL

    stumbled onto this grill addition at arf

    GrillGrates are reversible INTERLOCKING PANELS that fit across the surface of your grill. They can replace your existing grates or cover them. The GrillGrate produces juicier and more tender food.

    Made of hard anodized aluminum, GrillGrates increase the grill surface temperature, reduces flare ups, hot and cold spots and delivers restaurant quality sear marks all at once. GrillGrates are the perfect replacement for old, rusted out grates.

    Interesting concept. I would prefer porcelain covered though.

    Interesting concept. Most of you Que Knuckleheads know this but for anyone who doesn't, please find a short tutorial below;

    GRILLING; (Slippy's Definition) is cooking meats using DIRECT HEAT usually at HIGH TEMPS and usually meat is finished quickly, in other words, HOT AND FAST. The GrillGrate will obviously supplement one's ability to GRILL. But so will conventional grates like Porcelain Enameled Cast Iron which is what I prefer on my Weber Gas Grill. Cast Iron (porcelain enameled or not) is pretty hard to beat.

    BBQ'ING: (Slippy's Definition) is cooking meats using INDIRECT HEAT and SMOKE at LOW TEMPS for long periods of time, on other words, LOW AND SLOW. The GrillGrate does nothing to supplement one's ability to BBQ. I would never add the GrillGrate to my smokers.

    I'm a little weird about cooking on aluminum. I would prefer if they were made from stainless steel. I have heard some not-so-nice effects of cooking on aluminum side effects. Not sure if they are true or not, but I ain't taking no chances.

    Hey, I was posting B4 work, think Mum got Alzheimers' from aluminum cans. I didn't even read the article. I'll stick with steel grates

    BTW, I broke my favorite stainless drinkin' glass because I couldn't go full screen CBS live stream on my ASSus laptop

    About that aluminum Sparky, most "Greek" restaurants cook entirely on aluminum.

    If they were steel and porcelain coated I can see how the heat would be more even with that design.
