1. Reusable Barbecue Sheet
With football season in full swing, sports fans everywhere are sparking up their barbecues for a little tailgate time.
And while cooking veggies, fish and other delicate eats directly on your grill top often yields less-than-perfect results, single-use aluminum foil is far from your only option.
This dual-sided stainless steel barbecue sheet from Mr. Bar-B-Q keeps small, delicate food on the grill and out of the fire. It also spreads heat evenly for a perfect bite every time.
As an added bonus, this reusable solution easily covers messy cooking grids. So, if your grill is looking a bit grungy and you don’t have time to clean it before party time, just place your sheet on top and you’re ready to cook.
