Cokina Sheet with Magma grill

We've got one of the little stainless Magma propane grills on the boat. I'm not a big fan of gas grills but it's got it's uses. ( Mesquite or Pecan charcoal are my preferences)

Anyhow, cleaning the little grill is a nasty job. Grease from burgers, hot dogs, chickens etc. drips down over all kinds of things and it's really best to take it ashore to clean it.

On a whim, I picked up a roll of this Cookina stuff. I just trimmed a piece of it to fit the grill, and the stuff is wonderful so far. Transfers heat, browns the meat, and is a snap to clean up. Nothing dripped on the grill. Thought I would pass this along.

This is the stuff:

It works.

Re: Cokina Sheet with Magma grill

Interesting. Does that make it more like sauteing?

I agree that grills get messy. To limit this, I cook on as high a heat as possible. Dripped fats are more likely to evaporate. I also close the lid, when done cooking, and turn it to full high and let some burn off while we eat. I write the rest off to seasoning.

Re: Cokina Sheet with Magma grill

I just cut another piece of it to fit the broiler rack in the Force 10, did toast on it this morning. No drips. Easy clean in the sink. This stuff is working out well so far.

I brought this up in the first place because I was off complaining about something on another forum, and was noticing how large a percentage of posts are people complaining about something. This makes sense, as most people don't bother to sit down at a keyboard when things go well. And I thought, well hell, why not post about stuff that DOES work from time to time. So...since this one is from lately, I thought I'd mention it. I had just had to clean the Magma again last week, and to do it in the cockpit was a royal pain. Greasy little flecks of stuff all over the place. Wind picking up dirty paper towels and blowing them all over, etc. Spraying Simple Green, Lava hand soap to clean myself up, all that.

Now I've cooked cheeseburgers and steaks on this little sheet, and the grill is still as clean as when I started. The liquid pools out from around the bottom of the meat, but dries on the sheet before it drips off the edge. So far.
travlineasy and oysterman23 like this.

Mine just arrived yesterday evening, and I will try it out tomorrow on my gas grill and let you know the results - should be interesting.

Re: Cokina Sheet with Magma grill

One of the sailing schools I work with provides these. I am impressed.

Re: Cokina Sheet with Magma grill

So far I've cooked cheeseburgers, brats, and steaks on it on the small propane Magma. I'm more of a fan than ever. We just found another benefit.

Week before last we had a rat aboard. No, not a politician, I mean a real four legged rat. He's no longer with us (RIP) but in thinking about where he came from and why he came on board I was focusing on the globs of cheese and grease thataccumulate in the bottom of the grill between cleanings. Yeah, I know I know I know I should clean it back to shiny stainless every time, but I don't. I'm lazy, okay? One of them procrastinators. Anyhow I figure the rat picked up the scent of food during a wind shift and came aboard.

Now, this cooking sheet thing keeps the grill pretty much spotless. All the grease, melted cheese, jalapenos that fell off the burgers, etc. stays on the sheet. Last night I let it cool, rolled it up into a little tube, and carried it inside to clean it in the galley. No mess. No problem. took maybe three minutes. And no food globs left out overnight in the grill.

I don't know how much usage these are good for. I've done six meals on this one so far, and it's still in good shape. I havent' turned it over to use the other side yet, and I still have enough of the stuff on the original roll to cut quite a few more when this one wears out, or whatever it does.

In messing around with it, I've discovered that the cooking sheet heats up faster than the grill itself does. I used to let the grill warm up a couple minutes before putting food on it. This thing is hot much faster.

So far, I still like it quite a bit. I'll be interested in other's thoughts.

Re: Cokina Sheet with Magma grill

Mine will get the acid test tonight with Johnsonville Grillers (bacon and cheddar flavor), sauteed onions and mushrooms and potato cakes mixed with cheddar cheese and onion bits. I'll keep you posted on how this comes out.
