BBQ, Smoking, & Grilling

Do you grill with aluminum foil (and no, it's not what you're thinking of)

Do you use aluminum foil to grill meats?

I'm not talking about wrapping, say a whole fish or some chicken breasts, in a foil pouch and then putting it on the grill.

I'm talking about putting a flat sheet of foil on the grill grates and then placing your meat on the foil, unwrapped, to "grill".

Do you do this?

I only ask because there was a commercial touting the benefits of this method (from Reynolds Wrap, of course). They said it prevents food from sticking to the grill.

Well, sure, not using my grill at all would also prevent meat from sticking to the grill.

I can't fathom why anyone would grill this way.

Please enlighten me.
