Ace Carolla is pushing this as one of his sponsors, and I am an avid BBQ'er and cook... anyone try this little invention?

I have an older Weber Genesis that has had many of it's original parts replaced, but it still grills as well as the day I first bought it... just wonder if it could be better...?

Looks stupid to me. I don't see how it's better than my stainless steel grill.

Cast iron is about a billion times better. However, this just seems like a souped up cast iron grill. Not worth it if you have cast iron already IMO.

I fail to see how that's any different than the grate already in the grill.

The two biggest design features are the sealed top and the grease gutters. No grease hitting the burner = no flare ups, which for most foods (hot dogs notably excepted) usually means a better outcome.

If you already know what you are doing, these grates aren't going to suddenly turn you into the Steve Raichlin of back yard grilling. I cook outdoors 6 nights a week in the summer and am happy with my results, so I will not be buying a set of these grates. I might consider them once my current cooking surface wears out.

Looks like it makes a standard grill into a George Foreman...why would anyone want to capture open flame with a cast iron block? Defeats the purpose IMO.
