    Frog type Cooking Mats

    I got a small frog mat with my Rec Tec and want to get a larger one and a smaller one for my GMG Davy Crockett. My question is what are you using and would you get the same thing when it needs to be replaced?

    My question is what the heck is a frog mat?

      I bought a Frog mat from Rectec, and I really like it. The first thing I did was cut it into a circle shape with a pair of scissors, so it would fit my grill. It is cheap, easy to clean in the dish washer. I have a stainless steel basket for smoking shrimp also, but tend to use the frog mat instead since it is so easy to "curl up" into a basket when I remove it from the grill. On the other hand, I haven't tried too many other brands either, so I'm a bit biased.

        Keith, check out this link.

        It is just a fine mesh cooking mat that you put on the grates that prevents food from dropping through the grates.

          I don't think you are to biased as I know you. You have good values and have been around long enough to know good things when you see them.

            This is the one that I am thinking of getting.

            http://www.amazon.com/Kona%C2%AE-BES...5201684&sr=1-1

            Amazon says it is their best seller of all the grill mats.

              I bought my Frogmats at the BBQ Super Store (http://www.thebbqsuperstore.com/Sear...arch=frog+mats).

              Good prices, and a lot of different pre-cut sizes to pick from.

                Yes, I am now leaning heavily towards them. as I want the Rec Tec completely covered. 19" x 34"

                  I ordered it from the BBQ superstore as they had a one piece piece to fit the big grill.

                    Why do you need a frogmat? When do you use it?

                      I used mine on my weber 22" when I was smoking 18 lbs of candied pecans of various flavors. It's advantages over other grill grates are that it has a coating that makes it extremely easy to clean, and it's flexible so you can curl it up when you take it off the grill to keep items inside, or curl it up while on the grill to hold together loose food, like maybe a meatloaf. The baked/smoked-on sugar and honey from the candied pecans wiped right off every time, wouldn't be even close to that easy with a metal mesh or grate.

                        I use them all the time at competitions in the Pellet Jambo. It evens out cooking somewhat. Main thing is you can move whatever is on it around bare handed! They clean up pretty good in the dishwasher, or soak them to loosen up the gunk and brush them off.

                          Guy, we are glad you asked. I have used it when cooking fish, the nonstick small weave surface is really great for it. I will also use it when making meatloaf, meatballs, bacon, and veggies that tend to fall easily through the grates. Let your imagination run wild on what you can cook on it.

                            I like this idea, I can never take my rested pork butts back out to firm up the bark because they are so tender they fall through the grates and are hard to get out. I could set it on one of these for a bit to finish up.

                          At first I thought you guys were talking about a mat for under the grill / smoker to protect your deck or patio. For that I use an automotive oil drip pan; works great, lasts long time, easy enough to clean, and less then $10. Clicking the links I see these mats are for the grill surface. Other than saving the morsels, or smaller pieces of whatever, from falling through what purpose do they serve?

                            I bought this one for my Pit Barrel Cooker from Kitchen and Company. It fits my PBC perfectly. Chef's Planet Grill and BBQ mat:

                            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.
