Yes, metal can burn. I know it seems strange but when I went out to the grill, it was lit up. The temperature gauge was off the charts and the controls were too hot to touch. Flames were trying to escape the closed lid.
It happened like this: I had a great plan to make chicken kabobs. I had chicken marinating, bell peppers & mushrooms slices, zucchini cut into pieces. Then I realized I had no skewers. What to do, what to do?
I was struck with a great plan. I would cover the grill racks in aluminum foil, punch some holes in it and cook on top of that. Then I had another brilliant idea. Let’s use the non-stick aluminum foil.
I love this stuff. I use it in the oven all the time. The difference is the oven doesn’t have an open flame. It seems the non-stick foil has been treated with a chemical that can burn when exposed to fire. I now have bits of it stuck to my grill.
Tip of the Day: Do not use non-stick aluminum foil on the grill.
