'Tis the season ... so be sure to see our Holiday Entertaining Recipes
for some terrific ideas. And, it’s not too early to start thinking about our Country Christmas
menu for any of your holiday meals! For something different, how about mixing it up with our Light Southern Meal
with Grilled Catfish and Watermelon Salsa! Happy Holidays!
<p />Thanks for the ideas from the other night, but as I said in that first post I already knew it was safe to use for cooking as I vaguely remember it in use in my Mother's oven. In studying it closer I found a patent number and tracked it clear back to August, 1931 and it in fact was called a "broiling device". Furthermore "The apertures enable heat and hot gases from the below lying flame to directly contact food placed on the liner. Additionally, the apertures drain drippings, barbecue sauce and the like..." I have since taken a file to an edge and I believe it is made of aluminum which probably has been hardened for strength or even an aluminum based alloy as it is heavier then what it might appear. Anyway I intend to try it soon on my egg as a shrimp and veggie grate.
