While you're trying to stay warm this winter, you might want to think about grilling and using a new grill grate.
The GrillGrate has interlocking panels that work on any grill to form a new grill surface and is supposed to cook food more evenly, and block flare-ups so food doesn't get burned or charred.
It's available in sizes for rectangular or round grills and is placed on top of existing grates. A set of two standard rectangular grates starts at $39.99 and includes the GrateTool (part fork, part spatula), which allows you to lift food off the grill, not scrape it, and doubles to clean debris from grooves.
