    Looks good, how'd they taste?  Were they more tender, anything off?

    Tasted great yes very tender I am experimenting with hardly any seasoning at the moment and they still tasted great. My biggest problem right now is impatience. I don't let the grill get hot enough so in my mind I am not getting the perfect sear yet...

    Looks good - Thanks for the update. 
    But I don't get it, you can wait 19 hours as the flank hot tubs away, yet you can't wait another 10 minutes to get a hot cooking grid? Patience grasshopper, patience...

    So what do you think of the SideKic? Can't beat that price compared to the other units.

    i got the sidekic 3 weeks ago and it has almost been running the entire time. i love it. Did chicken breasts and legs, sirloin, filet, 72 hr short ribs. So far i couldn't be more happy with the sidekic. I hope i never need their customer service, but i hear it rocks if we ever do.

    Yep I did need their customer service and they were great! Super helpful and they donated a unit for the weight loss comp.

  • Damn thing still isn't available on Amazon. I wonder if they are having trouble building them. Dollars to doughnuts price will be over $200 when it comes back...

    Yep I like my grillgrates got them with the groupon a whilst back. BB I wouldn't be sure the last time they came available they were actually cheaper than when I bought mine. I would email them direct.

  • I got a set for Christmas , have used them once. Was actually impressed with how well they worked! I think they would be really good on a gas grill , to help with flame problems.
