FOLLOW-UP TO ICY WATER!

I should have mentioned that when cooking fish and other items on the grill I just learned something new. A friend gave us a "Grill Mat" and we used it for the first time with the redfish. I have a feeling that we'll use it every time we grill anything in the future. They're available at WalMart, etc. Following is the ad. I do not sell them or have an interest in the company. Just a product that impressed me.

BBQ Grill Mat keeps your food from falling through the cracks! No more losing your food while grilling but still get that BBQ flavor you love with BBQ Grill Mat. Simply place your BBQ Grill Mat directly on the grill and cook your food on the mat. The non-stick surface means you food won't stick and slides right off when ready. The grill mat is easy to clean in warm soapy water and can be used over and over again.

BBQ Grill Mat works for indirect cooking on gas, charcoal and electric grills. Use for low to medium heat- do not use above 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not use directly over an open flame or heat source.

BBQ Grill Mat makes grilling easy! Includes 2 Grill Mats- 15 3/4" x 13"

    If you're grilling redfish, leave the scales and skin on, works just the same and makes them so much quicker to clean. That's the way I cook them. No foil, nothing.

    Guess you failed to notice the original "Icy Waters" post in the fishing reports. We always cook redfish and mullet scales on, skin side down. However, it sometimes makes a messy grill. This post is about a method that keeps the grill clean and doesn't affect the cooking. Good grilling!

    I have a grill mat, I was not impressed with it. I does some of the thing really well, like you can see the grill marks etc. I guess I will have to try it again for fish. I had some Cod, the other day and breaded and grilled on a SS grill plate that wan't bad, but getting the breeding crisp, too to a slight over cooking but still OK
