OK I used this last sat at the demo cook in Bangor and used it again tonight. I am blown away at how clean these are to use and they do not get blazing hot during the cook.
no pics of last Saturday but we did a number of none messing things on it and then wings with Carnivore sauce all over them. sticky and you would think BURNT ON after about 6 batches. it did not get cleaned for a few hours till we got home and unloaded. rinsed and wiped clean. REALLY!
tonight I used the same mat to cook puff pastry for a tart and i did roll it on the counter then pierce it with a fork and then added it to the mat. baked at 450 indirect and it was closer to 500 as I messed up the daisy wheel. added cheese and asparagus and grated cheese and some got on the mat. let this cook and pulled the edge off a little to cool the mat slightly and lifted it bare handed and it SLID off the mat onto my tray. slid off!
you can just see the outline of the tart.
next I added the salmon skin down dusted with ragin river and then a ginger jam glaze. salmon juice every where, skin, and glaze. it slid off the freaking mat again. like nothing was there.
here is the mat on my counter and I have not wiped it clean or anything this is straight off the egg from the salmon.
The company just stopped selling to the public and you can only get them from your dealer. I got mine from Dan Coyne "GrillmanDan" on here I have no connection to Dan or the frogmat you can ask your dealer to get them for you. I will be getting one for every size egg I have. simply amazing. not to many things do what they claim but this is one handy mat. you cant use it direct but it is one cool thing to have LOL

    I need to check into those. I bet they would work well for ribs to help with the grid marks

    Gene I am just amazed with these things. for salmon to just slide off and it was cooked to 139 so med done. best part, no messy pan soaking all night to get the skin off it LOL

    Is it meant to be re-used or thrown away?
  • Do you know how much one is to fit a large egg? I've been wanting one of these for a while but can't find them.

    Re-used many, many times. Get one...

    Don't remember the $, but contact GrillManDan via the forum. Like an Egg, they are worth a heckuvalot more than they cost.
  • Stupid question, but how do you contact him? Do you have to wait until you catch him online? Thanks

    Just send him an email. Sooner or later, you will hear from him.

    $9.99 I think. I am in his store all the time but forget what I paid for them. I'll find out for you if he doesn't see this.
  • Great. I've looked for these everywhere in Lexington and can't find them. Ad as previously stated, they don't sell direct to public anymore. I'd pay $10 right now for one to fit my large.

    I bought two, a large and a small, from Dan at Melborne, and first posted about them with a grouper cook shortly after. I said then, and I will say again, they are a great product! :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

    I was wondering what they would do if the temperature got above 350°. 400 to 500° is impressive.

    Won some in Salado but still haven't used them. Will now for sure.

    What's it made of? In the photos it looks almost like a metal.

    Used my FrogMat for the first time last nite with chicken wings - I agree with Julie, this is a must have item.
