I've just done my first couple of cooks on the Cast Iron Grate.
I'm posting here because it is the only appropriate place given that I am an agent for the Cast Iron Grate and sell them through my website.
Firstly for Mick, who was asking if it would be OK to cook the Xmas turkey, I cooked a chook, maximum Heat Beads (I thought I'd try it flat out first up, to see what happened) in indirect format. I thought the Cast Iron Grate did protect the chicken from direct radiation and as illustrated in the photo, I had no problem taking out one of the inserts without disturbing the bird.
The next day I decided to test the flash grill potential, I used a full box of Coco chef charcoal blocks (Bender Turds, I think someone called them) so I had a ridiculously hot fire in the centre of the Grate. The sear was right on the money, given I was really trying to kick it as hard as I could, the Rib Eye had a fantastic char and cooked perfectly in just minutes, Once I had a good sear I moved them to the side (bone facing the centre for protection) for the last 3 to 4 minutes.
