We will cover some tips and procedures for utilizing your grill mats successfully.
Once your grill is heated to the optimal temperature for what you are grilling, which will be between 325 and 375 degrees, just position your mats on the grill. They’ll heat very fast. When you’re cooking on the mats be aware that it will be about the same as using a non-stick frying pan. You will certainly wish to spray your mats with a layer of cooking oil just before you begin. Just like other types of non-stick cookware, the oil will make the food a lot easier to deal with and simplify cleansing the mats as well.
To handle the food on the mats utilize your silicone-tipped pincers in one hand and your spatula in the other. With these two tools you can readily position the mats anywhere you require them when you are cooking. You will utilize these two key tools in a wide array of ways, depending upon what you are grilling.
For instance, with fish you can use your pincers to guide the food onto the spatula or to maintain the mat in place as you slide the spatula under the fish. You will do the very same with other foods, like pancakes, hamburgers, chicken, bacon and most other meats also.
The pincers can be used to turn and position foods that hold together when handled including shrimp, vegetables, fruits and similar foods. With bigger quantities of food, like mixed vegetables, move your tools directly toward each other when turning the food or mixing in your sauces. This will help prevent the mats from moving.
You will find that eggs are very easy to barbecue if you spray a bit of extra oil on the mat and see to it that your grill not on tilt. The leveling is important, or else you run the risk of sliding your eggs down into your barbecue.
So now you can hop to it and begin barbecuing!
