Grilled Fish- Flesh Side Down First

Traditionally fish would be cooked skin side down and sometimes it doesn't ever get flipped. It has been done this way for ages because fish tends to want to stick or flake apart while grilling. With GrillGrates you can now grill salmon beginning with the flesh side down on the grates. This method will give you gorgeous sear marks on the salmon which are also quite tasty and add texture to an otherwise soft protein. The sear marks are basically caramelized protein flavor bars. For an added bonus try drizzling a tasty marinade or salad dressing over the fish while it is still on the grill. The moisture will sizzle in the GrillGrate valleys and create a flavorful steam bath that adds an extra pop of flavor!

The Modified Burger Technique

Grilled or Griddled? That is the question that GrillGrates answer in stunning fashion. You can have both! This new technique has us scratching our heads wondering why we hadn't thought of it sooner! You can completely dial in the crust on your burgers to your liking. Get beautifully crusty flavor and texture you wouldn't get doing it one way or another.

Use The Valleys As A Flavor System

It never ceases to amaze us how ingenious GrillGrate owners can be. Years ago Meathead from AmazingRibs.com clued us into sprinkling a few wood pellets down in valleys during the cook. The wood pellets slowly smolder adding a nice kiss of smoke. Then one day while cooking brats and drinking beer we had the inspiration to pour some beer over the brats. The result was a super juicy brat with crisp skin that tasted like it was cooked in a beer bath rather than grilled. Chefs discovered they could add flavor to their grilled foods by sprinkling spices and herbs into the valleys. Our good friend and president of the Steak Cookoff Association, Brett Gallaway, had a stroke of genius while grilling on his GrillGrates. He decided to pour some Crown Royal over his Philly steak fixins' being cooked on the flat side of his GrillGrates. Although we have not tried it yet we've heard the results were amazing!

The Reverse Sear

The reverse sear is a wonderful technique to use for any large cut of meat whether it be beef, pork, lamb or even chicken. The concept is simple. You slowly raise the internal temperature of the meat while introducing some smoke flavor (if you choose to do so). Once you are within a few degrees of your target internal temperature you crank the heat up and finish off with a final sear. By allowing the internal temperature to slowly rise within the meat you end up with beautifully cooked protein that is one solid level of doneness throughout. If you try to cook a large piece of meat on your grill right from refrigeration it will have the five seasons of doneness. Rare in the center, a medium rare ring, a medium ring, a gray medium well ring and finally a dryed out flavorless outside ring.
