    Best grate for great grill marks

    Had my Weber Kettle for 10 years with the original grill grate. What is the best grill grate to get that will give me great grill patterns which will impress my wife, kids, friends, and neighbors ???

    Edit to add:

    If anyone ever sez something about the lack of grill marks, tell them that there are over 200 flavor compounds in the dark brown crust, so why limit those flavors to a few grill marks.

      I understand the logic of this but my guess is that if someone did blind taste tests very, very few would be able to tell the difference between grill marks and even dark brown crust any better than a random guess. I know Maillard reaction is good, but is more Maillard better? Without blind testing, who really knows? Maybe I'm justifying personal laziness because I choose not to flip my burgers every minute for the perfect brown crust.

    I agree, GrillGrates are the greatest grates to get great grill grate grate marks.

      I use my grillgrates upside down - does a pretty good sear that way

        if you get the grill grates then you can do either full sear or grill stripes...best of both worlds.

          I use Grill Greats. I have been turning them Griddle side up. A little better flavor, no grill marks.
          So there you have it. I enjoy the taste of complete sear, and enjoy the looks of grill marks.

            GrillGrates are good. Thick cast iron is another option.
