Do you want to create those professional-looking grill marks on your meat or fish without any hassle? The Weber Gourmet Sear Grate will allow you to do just that with your charcoal grill.
I’ve been using Weber grills for years but one of my pet peeves has been that I simply can’t get my kettle grills hot enough to get a nice sear on my steaks, pork chops, or seafood. Until now…
I just used my new Weber Gourmet Sear Grate the other night for the first time and I am psyched about the results! What is even cooler about this sear grate is that you don’t even have to do the traditional step of turning your steaks slightly to get the cross-hatch marks.
This sear grate has the cross-hatch built in!
I’ve used, and still use today, Weber Grills in all sizes including my Weber Smokey Joe, my Weber 18-Inch One Touch Silver, and my latest Weber Grill purchase which is the Weber 22-inch Kettle Grill. I basically use the grill that makes sense for the situation. I always use my charcoal grill mat under my grills for safety sake.
If I’m heading over to my in-laws’ house I’ll just pack up my Weber Smokey Joe in my Weber Smokey Joe Bag and set it up over there to cook up hamburgers, steaks, pork chops, or any other meat or seafood. My Weber 18 inch One Touch Silver is perfect for just my wife and I or a small group of relatives or friends.
The Weber Gourmet Sear Grate is dynamite and I cannot wait to try it out next time on pork chops. I am very excited that I finally have a charcoal grill that can sear a piece of meat. I use it with my Weber Hinged Cooking Grate because this grate is made specifically for adding the Sear Grate to the center.

Weber Gourmet Sear Grate without the BBQ System Hinged Grate
If you don’t want to invest in the BBQ System Hinged Grate, you can actually simply place the Weber Gourmet Sear Grate directly onto your existing grate.
I guess you really don’t have to buy the hinged grate with the section in the middle and could probably just place the sear grate on top of your existing grate. I decided to take the plunge and get the Weber Hinged Cooking Grate seen above because now I can pick up many of the other accessories that go with this grate in the future.
