Can I Use Aluminum Parts in My BBQ?
The answer to the question, Can I Use
Aluminum Parts in My BBQ? is short and sweet: yes. And, in fact, there are
even buy an aluminum charcoal
grill if you so choose! Yes, that's a whole, entire barbecue grill made from aluminum,
made to maximize heat radiation.
Some of the aluminum parts available include:
- aluminum cooking grates and BBQ griddles,
which some people use as replacement grates. Why use aluminum? It heats more evenly, food doesn't tend to
burn, and the grate doesn't rust.
- Aluminum grill liners, which are placed
on top of the cooking grate to keep it clean (or, in a pinch, to cover up a dirty grate which
you don't feel like cleaning at the moment!).
- Aluminum grill bags - heavy-duty bags
that you can use for easy cooking. We sometimes use these to cook veggies, just throwing them in and sealing
it up, then placing the bag on the grill to cook. Easy-peasy!
- Aluminum ash scoops and other various
tools. No rust!
There's also cast aluminum - it's generally easier to clean than stainless steel
and it's also rust-resistant.
