Yoshi Grill Mats | Unsolicited Review, Inc.


Summer is the season for grilling and I am not going to lie, I’m NOT a good griller.  I never know how long to keep the meat on the grill so it usually ends up being overcooked, dry or burned.

I received an iDevices Bluetooth connected kitchen thermometer from @SwitchToTurkey, but haven’t had a chance to program it.  I love seeing grill marks on meat but never put it directly onto the grates, only onto a piece of non-stick foil.

We purchased a Char Broil Red grill in 2010 but the bottom pans have already rusted away so the flames chars the food more than it cooks it.  

One evening hubby heard me complaining about the grill so he took it upon himself to order a Yoshi Grill Mat, one of those “As Seen On TV” items, he’s such a sweet man!

It seemed like it took forever to arrive but when it finally did, I was far from impressed.

Not having seen the commercial I wasn’t sure how these “plastic” mats were going to work on a hot propane grill, so I didn’t bother to use them for over a week.  

When I finally decided to give them a try I was truly surprised and thoroughly pleased with the results!  I used one mat for the chicken but wasn’t sure about the veggies so I kept them in the pan before placing them onto their own grill mat.

It was true, the chicken and veggies cooked nicely and there were even grill marks.  Nothing burned or dried out, everything was moist – these Yoshi Grill Mats will definitely be used on the grill for the rest of the season.

For dessert I made this watermelon summer salad after seeing it on a Google+ post, which was a perfect way to end the meal.
