Mangrates are American made grilling grates designed to sit on top of any existing grill and give the griller the steakhouse quality food they want. ManGrate’s cast-iron design utilizes radiant heat—instead of convection heat or “hot air”—searing in the juices but allowing food to cook evenly. The smoke rails are the angled ledges on each bar of the ManGrate. These ledges are designed to trap and retain oils and fats released during grilling, and it’s these juices that aid in the natural smoking process giving meats a rich, barbecued flavor. They also serve to reduce flare ups.
One of the problems we had been having lately is that our burgers have not been cooking fully through and it seems no matter how long we leave them on the grill, it kept happening. So we decided to give Mangrate a try to see what would happen. While the burgers did end up getting cooked fully through all the way, it did seem to lose some of the juices we were used to having using the grill the old way. (Maybe we left them on too long to overcompensate for them taking so long to cook the old way!) Hot Dogs cooked the same as always and even had some nice grill marks on them as well.
Our next attempt will be to try some other different meats on the grill – maybe some chicken or steak!
