Then one day I was watching hubby cook on the outside grill and he used foil for something and I was like what the what? Could my problem really be fixed that easily?
So I pulled out the now dusty beyond words cause it was at the back of a cabinet for years grill. Washed it off and got some foil ...I made the pieces fit the grill and began cooking...awesome..but wait ...my genius idea was a failure!!! How well cause the food stuck to the foil. I no longer had to clean the grill but I also didn't have food without foil stuck to it...arghhh!!
But wait there's more....I was walking down the paper goods aisle at Walmart and what did I see..NON STICK foil..Yes I hate to admit it but in 32 yrs I had never heard of NON STICK foil. I always bought the huge regular foil at Sam's club so I never looked at any other kind of foil.
While it is more expensive it is WORTH IT!! So this is the kind you need to buy!! Regular foil WILL NOT WORK!!
When you put on the bottom foil you want it to fit fairly close to the right size. When you put it on you push it down so you can see the grill lines. Then this is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!! Tear off the bottom corners so the grease drains into the trey!! If you do not tear the corners you will have grease all over the counter which is a huge gross mess!! Trust me you will only forget this step once!!
Here is what the foil looks like after cooking my 2nd set of chicken on the foil.
Hope this helps make your life a little easier!! I use our grill DAILY!!!!
