The Best Grilling Accessory You’ll Ever Buy for your grill

Nobody wants a burnt or dry meal. Flare-ups can quickly ruin any backyard cookout. At GrillGrate, we believe that grilling should be easy, fun, and stress-free – every time. All you need is GrillGrates for your grill.

We call them “sear stations” for a reason; GrillGrates turn pellet smokers into pellet grills. They trap and concentrate heat and conduct it up the rails for great searing while the valleys sizzle juices for added flavor. GrillGrates typically add 100 degrees or more at the grate surface on pellet grills. Every set comes with a GrateTool which is part fork, part spatula that fits between the rails to get under your food and lift it without scraping. Here’s how:

  • Non-stick Hard Anodized Aluminum Interlocking Panels
  • Two-in-One Surface; Rails Side Up for Traditional Grilling & Flat Side for Flat Top Griddling
  • Rust Resistant Material


  • Faster cooking
  • Simpler grilling with better results
  • Reduced flare-ups
  • Versatility
  • Easy to use and clean
  • Light and transportable

Your Grill, But Better. As opposed to traditional grill surfaces that merely just hold the food above the heat source, GrillGrates concentrate heat through the patented raised rail design cooking food faster and more evenly. GrillGrate’s air flow vents and flat side work together to trap grease, prevent charring, and block those pesky flare-ups that tend to engulf and dry out food. When we say better, juicier food every time – we mean it! It is central to the innovative design of this grate. The sizzling-hot valleys vaporize drippings and juices, retaining moisture and enhancing flavor.

  • (3) 16.25″ Panels
  • Assembled Dimensions: 16.25″ Deep x 15.375″ Wide
  • This set sits on top of your existing grill surface.
  • Comes with the GrateTool, Recipe & User Guide, and Safety Card.

Please note: Pellet Grill sear stations do not provide full grill coverage in order to allow ample airflow. In testing, we have found that with too many GrillGrate panels, heat can get trapped. When this happens, the fan in the pellet grill turn off, which ultimately turns off the grill.

15 reviews for 16.25" GrillGrate Pellet Grill Sear Station (15.375" WIDE)

  1. Christopher Winters (verified owner)

  2. Edward Hodapp (verified owner)

    Use the reverse side for excellent pizza and for excellent searing of meat. This type of metal heats up as fast as the control panel indicates, no extra time and pellets wasted for the pizza stone or pizza iron to heat up for pizza cooking or meat searing. The reason for only four stars is that putting pellets below the food on the regular side of grate allows the grease to drip on the pellets and put them out. Also, metal cannot generate additional heat, the statement that this grate will increase the temperature by up to 200 degrees is BS.

    • Emily Astin (store manager)

      Hi there! Thank you for your GRATE review. We love the flat side too! Additionally, GrillGrates are made of hard anodized aluminum. The way it generates additional heat is aluminum is highly conductive. Heat travels to the grates from the fire source, gets absorbed, and through conductivity amplifies the heat. In our testing, it adds 100-150 degrees F at the GrillGrate surface.

    Actually need 5 grates for Traeger 885

    • Emily Astin (store manager)

      Hello Darcy! Thanks for leaving a review. Pellet grills require ample amounts of air flow to operate properly. We have found when using more than 3 GrillGrate panels (a Sear Station) heat can get trapped causing the fan in the pellet grill to turn off (turning off the grill ultimately).

  4. Frank

    I use them more often than I thought I would. Good nonstick surface. Leaves nice grill marks. I find it easy to clean as well.

  5. Anonymous

    This is a fantastic product, it makes perfect seer marks and is worth adding to you GMG!

  6. Mike

    Great sear, perfect steaks!

  7. Vic

    Grill Grates broadens the capability of my GMG. I love my GMG for what it is…an Amazing Smoker. With the Grill Grates, I can effectively grill and sear meats and vegetables…a limitation found on pellet grills. My reason for 4 stars vs 5 is the grates slide forward and back sometimes. They are locked side by side but with the slightest force, a section will move out of position.

  8. Josh

    At first, I was dubious, but the sear marks very clearly speak for themselves; these work very very well. It didn’t work as well for the first few cooks until the bars got better seasoned, but the suggested onion trick is brilliant.

    I would have given these 4.5 stars, because the one problem is they do slide around a decent bit on my grill, which could have been resolved by making these lock together

  9. George Barnard

    The product works as advertised. It gives beautiful picture perfect grill marks and prevents flare ups.

  10. cdubb

    These things work really well with my GMG pellet smoker. They work as advertised.

    Only thing I would say is when reverse searing, be careful once you get your meat on the grates…almost had some well done steaks because they do get extremely hot and cook the meat much faster than you are probably used to.

  11. Paul

    This product has increased the amount I use my pellet smoker by 500% they are amazing and work exactly as advertised

  12. Dave

    I found it hard to believe that these grates would actually work better to brown meat than the grates on my grill, but they really do. The one improvement would be that when you link the grates together that they also wouldn’t slide back and forth. When you clean the grates they slide back and forth in their tracks, adding a “lock” in the tracks would fix this.

  13. Jim Foley

    I actually only used two of the enclosed three grates on my grill. Kept the factory rack on the other side. Thanks to YouTube I griledl the most tender rib eyes I ever had AND got the sear marks I like with the Grill Grate

  14. Grant

    Purchased these for my Traeger Pro Series 22 Pellet Grill. When cooking on high (hottest possible setting) the grates do perform as said and create nice grill marks. Must run the grill for a bit first a little longer while they heat up. I did notice that when using 3 panels of 4 possible on my grill, the overall grill temp doesn’t reach as high as it used to or without them; however the grates I assume absorb more heat than the standard racks, taking away some internal temp. Only complaint is since mine are layed over the standard pellet grates, I wish in cleaning/scraping them they wouldn’t slide around as much. I would recommend only 2 out of 4 panels unless cooking a lot of burgers or steaks for a party. Or maybe I should of ordered longer sizes, but wanted to allow heat from the fit to easily come up the front and back.

  15. Dean

    Makes the best grill marks I have ever done. The reverse sear is just as amazing when doing steaks. I’m not an expert at grilling but I get my pellet grill to temp then wait 30 minutes and they are ready to sear. Which is perfect for me. I am really pleased by these grates and honestly surprised.
