We love to grill out and now that the weather is FINALLY warming up, our grill will be getting a lot of use! My hubby and I are always competing to see who can make the better steak. Now I have a secret weapon! The ManGrate Grill Enhancement System is made of cast-iron and utilizes radiant heat – instead of convection heat or “hot air” – searing in the juices but allowing the meats to cook evenly. This allows you to make perfectly cooked steaks, poultry and vegetables. I received 2 sets of ManGrates along with their ManBrush.
ManGrates are super heavy duty. They’re virtually indestructible when cared for properly. Each ManGrate measures 15″ long x 4 1/4″ wide x 1 3/8″ high. A pair of ManGrates covers 15″ x 8 1/2.” The sit directly on top of your existing grill top with the smoke rails pointing up.
Since they are made of cast iron, they do require seasoning. It’s super simple. All you need to do is apply a coating of cooking spray onto the ManGrates after placing them on the grill. Then, turn the grill on high, close the lid and let the ManGrates heat for 10-15 minutes to allow the oils to penetrate. Once they were seasoned, we reduced the heat to medium and threw a couple of steaks on.
It did take the steaks a little longer to cook just because we waited for the ManGrates to get good and hot. My hubby said he felt like the hotter the ManGrate was, the less the meat stuck. Once they were done, we took them in to see how they turned out. When I cut into my steak I was happy to see it was cooked perfectly! When I cook steaks on the regular grill top, some sections of the steak get more done than other do to the uneven flame. These were nice and juicy and had cooked evenly. This is due in part to the angled ledges on each bar of the ManGrate. These smoke rails are designed to trap and retain oils and fats released during grilling. These juices aid in the natural smoking process and give meats a rich, barbecued flavor. They also serve to reduce flare ups.
Clean up was easy. After allowing the ManGrate to cool, you just brush them clean, spray with oil and close the lid. Easy peasy! Our steaks were delicious and I can’t wait to try grilling chicken next!
