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!
