There's literally nothing better than these. I wanted some for a year or two, but didn't want to spend the $$$. My wife got them for me a year and a half ago for Christmas and I have not had a single flare up since, no matter how fatty the meat. I even grill bacon on here!

Grill Grates. Period. Done. The best thing I ever bought for my grills!

https://www.grillgrate.com/?gclid=EA...SAAEgLPDPD_BwE

Nothing falls through, flare-ups are controlled. MUCH better heat distribution, superior quality and a fantastic fingered spatula that slides in the groves and lifts your food off as opposed to scraping the food off.

You can get them custom made for your grill so you toss out those silly round grates. I have a set on my little Weber as well as on my big boy Alfresco grill on the patio.......

YouTube them.........

lol. I was skeptical at first myself. Check out the PK Portable Kitchen grills. Adding the Grill Grates adds a ton of versatility. without turning it into a glorified steamer.

I use charcoal for fuel and never have a flame up problem.

I have an infrared grill, and it never gets flare ups. None that I see at least.

I've taken to using the cedar planks for grilling fish for my wife. They are easy to use , and make me look like I know what I'm doing.

Try Reynold's non stick foil. It's what I use for walleye

If you have a good quality grill you don't need crap like that.

I don't see the need. I close the air vents on my grill and flare ups are almost instantaneously extinguished. Not too mention if I'm cooking steaks I want a little bit of flame hitting the steak.

That's why I have a Weber. If you keep your Weber grill clean you will not have flare ups.

I thought paper grocery bags went away because they cause loss of trees? so we could use plastic grocery bags that come from oil that don't decompose and get eaten by sea turtles?

Just something about cooking on/in rubber that doesn't sit well with me, I'll stick to steel 'n iron.
I know it's some special heat resistant teflon infused silicon or whatever that is "supposed to be" safe..but I'll pass.

Them sear marks from meat sitting on hot metal is part of the flavor and experience I seek.

This is what makes the grill grates topper shine. You can crank the hell out of the heat, and quickly transfer that heat into the meat, without it getting overly scorched or charred. Or you can dial back the heat for delicate foods such as fish. And get the best grill marks possible.

Same here, I pictured a big ole piece of foam that said "SeaDeck" on it and thinking my next stop was Amazon to have one delivered for this weekend!

its a game changer on a Wilmington. Makes the one thing that is difficult to do in them, sear steaks, easy.

I was just quoting another opinion on here. I'm considering some, I see they are 15% off this weekend, which basically covers the shipping charge. Hard to beat a Wilmington, wish they were cheaper for Wilmington residents.

They are good stuff. I completely thought they were a gimmick until my buddy bought some with his PK. Borrowed his and tried them out on my wilmington and couldn't believe how well they worked.

Regarding WG pricing. First one my uncle bought was right about $1,000. Got it at a hardware store in Southport when my other uncle commanded the Sunny Point terminal. Last one I got was about 3 years ago. $1850. One upside though, all you have to assemble on the new ones is the legs and side shelves. The first ones we got had to have every nut and bolt attached.

I've noticed the same as far as pricing, privately owned stores outside of Wilm., seem to have lower prices.
