The GrateTool Kickstand

Often times when grilling rack of lamb or bone-in pork roasts it can be difficult to get a good "all over" sear. By nature a round shaped roast will not sit properly in certain positions without a a little help. This is where the GrateTool comes in handy. By threading the tine of the GrateTool through the rib bones on a roast you are able to prop the meat up in whatever position you like. We all love that crispy caramelized crust that the Maillard reaction produces. Now you can have even more tasty goodness!

1Essentially this is a modified technique employed to help sear larger cuts of meat.

2The GrateTool can be "threaded" through the rib bones in order to hold the meat in certain positions.

3Very helpful for rack of lamb or bone-in pork loins where normally parts of the roast do not get contact with the grill surface.

4The GrateTool can also be used to prop the lid of your grill open which can be helpful when trying to regulate temperatures.


Any cut of beef, pork or lamb that still has the bones (rib bones work best)
