New Patents Issued for Charcoal Companion® Brand of Grilling Accessories

Charcoal Companion: Moistly Grilled® Smoking Platform: Now you can easily achieve the intense, smoky flavor of a charcoal grill on a conventional gas grill. Food cooks directly over smoldering wood chips for a more concentrated smoky flavor. Fill the platform reservoirs with water, beer, wine, juice, stock, or any other liquid to create a humid grilling environment. The result? Undeniably juicy, succulent meats due to a much higher percentage of natural juices having been retained during the cooking process. — by The Companion Group on August 3, 2012 to Howto & Style (68 seconds)
