The Greatness that is GrillGrate

img_2328What are GrillGrate and why use them? GrillGrate are uniquely designed, interlocking panels made from anodized aluminum that can replace or be used in conjunction with your existing grill grates on your gas grill, Weber kettle grill, kamado  style grill or a pellet grill.  They are so versatile that you can even place them over an open fire.  The anodized aluminum allows the grates to conduct heat more efficiently and evenly than cast iron or stainless steel grates.  This is what delivers those fabulous grill marks we all love to see.

img_3508-2GrillGrates have valleys between the grates with proportionally sized holes that allow for vaporization.  Meat drippings are captured in the valleys instead of being dropped on hot coals.  This practically eliminates flare-ups which can be very beneficial when grilling something like chicken thighs or hamburgers.  In addition, the drippings vaporize and are distributed back to the surface.  To me, it makes sense that this process adds more flavor and moister to the food.

Just like a cast iron skillet, with a little seasoning, GrillGrates become nonstick. This makes it easy to cook just about anything on them.  And if you flip them over, you have a flat griddle-like surface for veggies, fish or even smash burgers.

I have the grates designed for the Kamado Joe Classic.  I’ve grilled up some fine-looking and fine-tasting meats and vegetables.  For my specific grill, I will add one more feature.  I like the way the grates come apart in separate sections because this gives me more flexibility.

img_3265I’m guessing many of you have your own attributes you love about GrillGrate that maybe I haven’t mentioned.  Please feel free to share them in the comments section below.

All-in-all, I give this product 5 stars for being very well-designed.  Not only does it make meat and vegetables taste better, it gives them an aesthetically pleasing appearance on the plate.
