Also the garden cannot get away from the fascination of porcelain enamel. No matter if charcoal, gas or electricity is used the cover of the grill is always enameled. Whenever heat-, weather- and color resistance as well as food safety are required enamel is able to guarantee this. There is one frequently asked question: “I think the painting on the inside of my grill cover flakes off!
What can I do?”
Don’t be scared, it is not the painting. The cover of a Weber Grill is not painted, it is covered with a burned enamel layer which cannot flake off. It is possible that if your grill is used very often that the fat can form a layer on the inside of the cover which gets roasted because of the high temperatures. If time goes by this burned fat layer starts to crumble. This is not poisonous but not very appetizing, so it should be removed regularly. This is pretty easy: Remove all loose pieces with a brazen brush or rumpled aluminum foil before heating the grill. To avoid the formation of this layer just clean the cooled down cover with a paper towel or a mixture of dish liquid and water.
A "Tatar hat" also brings some alternation for a barbecue and also allows you to continue with the barbecue in winter in your living room. The former horse people from central Asia were champions of easy mobile cooking. Lots of them carried along a steel cone with small spikes . They put these cones onto the fire to heat it up in breaks. The meat was put on the small spikes to cook it. The bottom was bent to form a channel to collect the aromatic fat and marrow. In this brew they cooked their additional dishes and vegetables. This type of “Mongolian Barbecue” is now known as "Tatar hat".
In lots of restaurants it is known as a very common way of providing food for customers. The Tatar hat now finds its way to private homes. Sometimes you have to cook for different people. Every guest is able to create his own meal. Doesn’t matter if fish, meat, cheese, vegetable – even vegetarians find something. Similar to a fondue but not as fatty the sociability has top priority.
