I thought Grill Grates were just another grill gimmick, but I was at a competition and a team next to us was grilling Pork Chops for a side category turn in and when I saw the grate marks and how hot he was running his Weber kettle, I was CONVERTED on the spot!

I had grown tired of the flaking and constant upkeep of the cast iron grates on my Performer and Genesis that I just got rid of them and replaced them with Grill Grates and I could not be happier.

So, I have one Large Big Green Egg, Weber Genesis C, the Performer and Q220 all decked out with GG's!

Keep an eye out for special offers, I got a screaming Groupon deal a while back.

They're the real deal. Lot easier to clean up/maintain than CI as well.

Ok, hopefully this won't start a riot... but I'm dying to know, which turns out a better steak, BGE or your Weber gasser? That steak that you have plated, with a glass of wine behind it... what was it cooked on?

I've been wanting to push past the 700 degree mark, but don't want to ruin good steak!
And have you..............Let's see some PRON...Do, no ask....DO

I use the Fire Magic gasser when doing steaks on high with my grill grates. I do not temp the grates. Still some yummy steaks.

Is there a difference between ManGrate and GrillGrate? I was thinking of just getting a Craycort for my OTG but after seeing the above pron I'm leaning the other way!

My buddy has CC, and I would take GG over CC any day. While craycort is great, they are a real pain to keep clean. He has to do a lot of work compared to what I do. He says he wishes he got the grill grates. Plus, they're made in the US, which craycort are not.
