grilling - aluminum science question

pitu | Sep 26, 2005 06:38 PM

Adamclyde's jerk chicken recipe is getting soon to hit the grill . . .

but we've got a bag of natural charcoal that has many many small bits that are falling through to the bottom of the grill. Until we find a discarded Weber to scavenge a second bottom grate from, SO thought to supplement the existing system with gutter guard mesh.

But that's a roll of ALUMINIUM gutter guard mesh. Any thoughts about the bad burning idea this might be? I put away my grandma's cast aluminum pans a decade ago . . .

Again, this is for the bottom grate where the coals are, not the top grate where the food goes. Thanks for your thoughts!
