Let it HEAT UP...Let it HEAT UP
on April 2, 2013
Easy to assemble and very, very, very convenient. Quite safe, and you never run out of fuel. You MUST adjust your cooking style...those reviewers complaining about the performance of this grill aren't using it correctly. There's a trick to it:
1. Turn it on, oil the grill with oil on a paper napkin, close the lid and LET IT HEAT UP FOR 10 MINUTES. DON'T OPEN THE LID DURING THIS TIME.
2. Prepare your food, getting everything ready.
3. Open the grill and quickly place your items on the grill, BUT DON'T "CROWD" THEM, leave at least an inch in between items.
4. Close the lid, and LEAVE IT ALONE! IF YOUR LOOKIN' IT'S NOT COOKIN', don't peek at it constantly, give it 80% of the recipe assigned cooking time, then QUICKLY take a glance at it, or use an electronic temperature probe to check core temperature rapidly.
Adjust your recipes as needed, and take notes! If something works, write it down to make it easier the next time. I use a timer and set it to 80% of the assigned cooking time, which cuts down, considerably, on the temptation to peek at it.
