Fish Grids

I'm in the market for something to grill salmon with on the egg. I see that grids are available and I have seen the baskets that work clam-shell style. How about some feedback from those of you who have experience with either of these. I kinda like the idea of being able to flip the meat with the clam-shell type.

    <p />Chuck, the time that I have done salmon, I have used HD foil - never did turn - the picture is of Grelt's "Salmon with Dijon Bourbon Glaze" - great dinner![p]Next I'm going to give MickeyT's recipe a try. Good luck!

    Chuck,[p]No need to flip the salmon. I have used the HD foil and now use a flat fish grill. Both have worked well and I prefer the grill over the foil as it provides better support when removing the finished product.[p]Spin

    Chuck,[p]What cut are you cooking? At Xmas I did a whole salmon - head and tail removed. It was split in the middle and I put it belly up in a v-rack with some butter and herbs and cooked it at 325* until the temperature was 150 ish. Worked great. I haven't done a salmon fillet or a steak yet, but plan to use my fish shell. You've probably seen them, looks like a wire fish, open it up and plunk it on. Only thing is my current one has a big-a** handle that won't work on the egg. I need to cut it off or get one without the handle. Either way, I would recommend using the basket if you don't want to risk the fish breaking up. [p]I have done it without - right onto the grill being real careful with flipping the steaks, or just leaving the fillet skin down until it burns through just in time to pull the fish off.[p]One last thing - a friend did this one last year and I'm dying to try it out.[p]Get a thin piece of cedar 0.5"-1" and soak it in water for at least three hours. Place your fillet onto the cedar and place the cedar onto the grill - Unbelievable!
