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.
