    I have a Williams-Sonoma grill press and it comes in handy grilling rib eyes that are under 1.5" thick. They tend to curl up if they're not thick enough. I also use it tailgating when we cook "breakfast" pork chops that are only a half inch thick.

    Basically any thin cut of meat....

    I use mine on pork chops so they don't curl. Inside, I've used it on bacon. Looking to see what other ideas people have.

    Dumb question...Wouldn't a grill press take out the juice by pushing down on the steak or chops?  Guess I'm thinking of it as pushing down on a burger which is a no-no

    Fat fingers. Sorry. Are too thin to even worry about juices.

    Hi Tmakie,
    Coming from blighty I follow a few british chefs, here is a video I watched of Gordon Ramsay cooking a pork chop in a saucepan, he snips the outer edge of fat with scissors to stop it curling, I am sure it would work on the bge for any chop that has a thick rim of fat on it, I don't have my bge yet but soon, very very soon, not soon enough.  Hope this helps:
