    Guys I have been wondering can you use aluminum screening for windows as grill mats? I don't see why not other than the machine oil contamination, but if you cook that off would it then be ok? Any thoughts?

    I have no problem buying those. But I was curious if they would work.

    If there is any salt at all on the food, the screen will dissolve and you will be eating aluminum.... Some folks say, aluminum is partly responsible for Alzheimers... I wouldn't use it... I use Todd's Matz.....

     
  5. I don't know about Alzheimer's but I use grill mats also.
     
  6. I have heard the same thing about Alzheimer's. I also use Todd's Q-matz



    They are also easy to clean.

    Maybe we could get Myth Busters to do a side by side with them.

    Happy smoken.

    The issue I have with the aluminum is it is not food grade. We use aluminum in a lot of our kitchen pans commercially, but it is designed for food service.

    Thanks for the feed back just figured I would ask. Never hurts to question.
     
  10. Never quit thinking outside the box. That is how a lot of great inventions were found.

    Happy smoken.
