Review – ProQ Afterburner:
Another bit of kit I have had for a few years now so it’s time for Review – ProQ Afterburner.
What is it?
It’s a circular sear grate designed to sit on top of your chimney starter so you can cook a steak or other smaller cuts of meat directly on top of the chimney starter!
The grill is made from high quality stainless steel, is 170mm in diameter, 3mm thick and weighs 600g.
How do you use it?
Fire up your chimney starter as normal and place the Afterburner grill directly on top of the chimney.
You can use the ProQ chimney starter
Or the Weber one.
Cooking on it:
Once the chimney is lit and all the charcoal is fully lit give the Afterburner Grill 5 minutes to get up to maximum temperature then place your meat directly onto the grill surface.
Give it a couple of minutes then flip it over.
After another couple of minutes check the internal temperature with a Thermapen and when it’s ready take it off.
I only have two cooks with this on the blog but I have used it loads of times, I will need to get it used again soon and write up another blog post!
Clean it with a scourer in warm soapy water then dry it and coat with oil.
Where to buy:
Mine was a Christmas present one year but I believe it was from Amazon:
