I recently had the opportunity to review ekSel BBQ Huge Grill and Baking Mats. These are mats you lay down on the grill right over the fire and cook your food on top of the mat. This is pretty awesome since grilling salmon usually leads to some falling through the grates. Did it do it’s job? Read on for more.
Non-stick, Teflon like (PTFE coated fibreglass)
Nothing falls on grill fire – no oil flames
Grill almost anything in a healthy way – Steak, Ribs, Burgers, Fish, Veggies and more
With these grates, you avoid food falling onto fire through the grill grates, which can happen often especially for seafood. It also prevents the flames from burning the meat. I experience this issue when I baste steaks or chicken with a marinade when I’m grilling. Those flame ups are annoying.
The grill mats are huge and it comes in a pack of two. The black mat is for meat, pork, chicken and the like. The beige mat is for fish, seafood, vegetables and similar items. I like the fact they are big and you can easily cut to size. I used the beige one first and cut it in half, and it covered about a third of my grill space.
You don’t want to cover the whole grill with the mat since you want space around it for the heat to surround the food. When I first used it, I made salmon with a blackberry jam wine topping. Nothing like picking something super sticky to cook on the mat. We just placed the salmon on the mat and covered it with the jam. Then shut the lid and let the grill do it’s work.
When the salmon was done, the fish was easily lifted off the mat with a spatula with nothing being left on the mat. What do ya know? A whole fish coming off the grill without leaving some stuck on there. That right there sold me on these mats. My fish was delicious. The mat didn’t give off any weird flavor at all.
Even better, it’s super easy to clean. You can wash it with warm soapy water or place it in the top rack of your dishwasher. Either way, it will clean up well and all you have to do is roll it up and store it in your drawer or cupboard.
