Re: Magma marine grill recommendations
2 years ago at Defender booth.
I have gone over the reason for the ceramic briquettes and their advantag in taste and in BBQing. They do not come with the grill, but I had no trouble inserting them in my grill over the radiant plate.
One common mistake people make is not using them on grills in general even home ones.
You can take the advice given or or not. I am not a Magma professional or dealer....just a food service one.
I used to have ceramic briquettes in my old grill at home. I agree that the do a great job at vaporizing the grease, which increases flavor and prevents flare-ups. My new grill came with warnings not to use them, because they would harm the air flow, causing carbon monoxide and soot. But if you say the Magma grill can accommodate them, I will put them in, because I know they do provide a lot of benefits.
$125 was an amazing price for the Magma 2 grill! I do wish I was looking at that time. I hope Defender has a decent discount during their upcoming sale, because I have a lot of stuff on my list to buy.
To everyone else, please keep the alternatives coming. It's all good.
