You have to have it. It is hanging on the rack and it calls your name. It beckons you. Where have you been all my life? This is what went through my mind when I first saw this 'Non-Stick Bacon Griller". It also happened to be on sale. This new Bacon Griller wss put in our shopping cart to begin its new life as a member of the Chilebrown bbq tool arsenal team. I usually do not like to shop but today was an exception. One can never have enough barbeque accessories
The 'Bacon Griller' is a metal stand that is shaped like a pup tent. It has metal troughs on the bottom to catch bacon love. (grease). Raw bacon is draped over the top of this non-stick utensil. It is placed directly on a hot bbq grill. The heat from the fire heats the metal and cooks your bacon. The fat drips into the trough. In fact this is a healthy way to cook bacon. All the excess fat drips away from your rashers and accumulates in the troughs. We cooked some great bacon from 'Shasta Valley Meats' Montague, California.
This tool worked like a charm. The bacon cooked fairly quickly. We turned the bacon several times. It crisped up nicely. I want to add the fact it was just plain fun to cook bacon over a barbeque fire. If there was any fault with this tool it is that the bacon did not crisp at the very center were the bacon drapes over the top of the griller. The heat is not as intense at the apex of this cooker. Another drawback is the removal of fat from the troughs for cleaning. The 'Bacon Griller' may not be perfect but just remember: "He with the most barbeque tools wins!!!!!"
