Grilling Companion

Mesh grill bags expand your options.

Last weekend we tried out the Charcoal Companion Mesh Grill Bag from Target. It’s a handy heat-proof mesh bag about the same size as a sheet of copier paper.

Stuff it full of veggies, scallops— most anything that would normally fall through a grill— and burn, baby, burn. We tested it with some fresh asparagus… ooo-la-la!

They say:

The Charcoal Companion Non-Stick Mesh Grill Bag is the ideal grilling buddy. Food stays securely inside the bag during grilling, and the nonstick material allows for easy removal of food afterwards. Smoke flows through the mesh design to impart flavor onto your meat, veggies, fish, shrimp, bacon, wings and more. The flexible mesh material is heat-safe to 600°F (316°C) and reusable time and time again. To use, simply place your food in the bag, snap it shut, and throw it on the grill. Grilling food in the bag instead of directly on grates also reduces clean up after your cookout. Dishwasher safe.

So far we’re impressed with it. Some reviews complain it falls apart after only a few uses. We’ll keep you posted.

Available online from Target.
