Still working on the Marks
 That looks like a W
Got it now!

Steel is extremely expensive and so is Cast Iron. More and more times now Grill manufacturers are coating their grill grates with chrome, porcelin, and other non-stick materials. This is good for a novice griller but, serious grillers want to make their mark on the meat they are cooking. When you go to a restaurant they always bring the plate out with Meat that has perfect marks and plate presentation. Now thanks to Grill Grates you can make these type of marks on any grill. The interlocking aluminum plates lay on the grill and give you great marks and many other benefits. Check them out here and let them know The Master Baster sent you.

Shish Kabob

Spring is here and so is hot weather. With hot weather comes time for Mama to relax. So Dad needs to cook the whole meal. There's not a better way to accomplish this than Shish Kabobs. Veggies, Meat all cooked on the grill. Mmmm Mmmm Good!!  Here's a few tips. Skewer the meat by itself. I prefer my steak Mid-Rare as I am sure you do too! I like my chicken Medium where its still juicy and just done. Veggies take longer to Grill so they do better on a skewer by themself. This is a trick that I have learned that others don't share. When it's all said and done remove the food from the skewers and separate it for all to enjoy.

How to cook Slammin Salmon

The Alaskan Salmon is born and bred in cold waters. Every spring the Salmon swim up stream to spawn. Much of this trek is through rivers that cut through the woods. Therefore it is fitting that we cook salmon on a wood fired grill. Cooking Salmon is easy. You don't need a mesh grill plate, you don't need foil, and you dont need a basket. You do need a hot grill and some grace. Place the Filet skin down for 6 minutes on a grill that is 175-225 degrees. Flip it over and remove the skin. (The skin is a good snack if you like fish and crunchy things). Turn a quarter turn. Flip over on other side. Wait 3 minutes and turn quarter turn. In 3 minutes remove from grill. Let sit for 10 minutes and squeeze 1/2 lemon over filet before eating....Not all grilling has to be barbecue.
