Flipping your GrillGrates over and cooking on the back side or flip side has really gained a lot of momentum in the past few years. What other grill surface is reversible and produces two totally different types of cooks? Many folks like their steaks, seafood and burgers to have that "all over" sear. Grilling on the flip side can also allow you more of a "griddle" type of cook for peppers, mushrooms, onions, you name it. GrillGrates are two cooking surfaces in one.
