I have been researching FrogMats as an addition to my EggArsenal. Anyone use them or have suggestions on a "like" product? Looking for something to do fish & other small/delicate cooks with.

Thanks!

  • another question....

    I have a Med BGE. Can FrogMats be cut? I am thinking about ordering a larger screen then cutting it down so I have one full size along with a quarter/half size?

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the link R2, I was curious about them but much too lazy to google. Unfortunately all the blue letters on black background made me cross eyed and dizzy so I'm still clueless. Maybe I can muscle up the courage to check it out later.

  • worst website ever...what the hell is this thing?

  • It is a flexible screen that is supposed to resist cooking food from sticking.

    I hope I just didnt order a giant piece of sheetrock tape LOL

    @cen-tex: " we're not telling you what it is, but man everyone loves it! And you want no NEED one!"

    So catwrangler, its a mesh? They say only use indirect.
    check out silpat (sp?) . You can get that almost anywhere, and even I can't get cheese to stick to it (parmesan crisps mmmmmm).

    Here's some ways I've used mine. 

    Handling chub sausages filled assorted ingredients (they're pretty fragile when you fill them).

    With some pizza ingredients:

    Meatloaf without a loaf pan:

    Burnt ends:

    Bacon explosion inspired - this was filled with pulled pork:

    I keep forgetting to use it to smoke/roast some nuts.

    Hope this is of some help (or at least be easier to look at than their website).

    Do you use your silpat on the BBQ?  I think my wife would kill me if I took it outside. 

    That is one nasty site.  Not even a picture of the product.

  • R2, those samples look fantastic. It seems to be holding up pretty well!?!

    I think I will use it for some Cobia as soon as it arrives & maybe do some fingerling potatoes to go with...

    cheers!

    even though it's FDA ok'd for direct food contact, i am not a huge fan of plastics and silicones used with food.  funny that silicone gaskets raise a hue and cry, but not a silcone grill mat.  >shrug<

    one of the guys on the 'other forum' has some bad luck and scorched/melted his silicone muffin pan in the egg. gotta think anyone worried about dreaded fumes might steer clear from silicone.

    part of me thinks that we'll understand more about this stuff later on.  like romans using lead in their cookware and utensils.

    OK, That thing looks like a silpat without the sheet. 
    And No, I have yet to have a need to try it, and not sure I would. My wife would probably have the same reaction. Those are here "baking babies" for deserts. 

    Interesting item. Not sure I see a need yet, but I can see where it would come in handy for fish fillets.

    Cen-tex, do you use your Silpat on the grill?  Their web site says not to, but did you find it was ok?  Here is what the website says:

    Can I use SILPAT® on the stove top?
    Never use SILPAT® on direct heat, stovetops or hot plates. Never use SILPAT® on the bottom of an oven, on a grill or with a broiler.

    I think that was Taz. I don't use Silpat for anything. My wife does though but only  with the inside oven (upon which I dare not tread unless absolutely necessary)
