Why Buy New Grill Grates?
If you have had your barbeque for a while, you have probably noticed that the grease and fat from the meat you cook can make a mess on the different grill parts. Over time, the grates that you use to cook the meat can become encased with debris from cooking, even if you habitually clean and oil the grates. In these cases, you can get more flavor and enjoyment out of your barbecuing experience by using new cooking grates. After a while, grates often become rusty and deteriorate. Rust makes food stick more to the grates, adds bad dirt and metal flavors to your food and, in extreme cases, can be a health hazard if you accidently ingest larger shards of rust. You can avoid these annoyances by buying new grates that fit your grill and cooking habits well.
Types of Grill Grates
Steel, cast iron and porcelain are all used to make cooking grates, and often the grates use a base of steel or iron with a coat of porcelain or a non-stick coating like Teflon. All of the materials have some non-sticking features to them, although Teflon is most associated with non-stick features. You can find grates to fit common round charcoal grills and all different sizes of gas grills. Think about the food that you want to cook when you decide which type of grate to buy. If you cook smaller foods like pepper or mushrooms on the grill, you will want grates that have few open spaces because these grates prevent smaller foods from falling into the fire. Grates can also leave great grill marks on meats when you let them get hot enough to sear the meat. Choose a grate pattern that you find appealing so you can get perfect grill marks every time you barbeque.
