A: Simply put, Mike’s Vertical Grill is a better way to grill! With its vertical heating element, food is grilled on both sides at the same time. This reduces cooking time by half or more of a conventional grill. This method also locks in the delicious flavor of the food far better than standard grilling methods. Plus grease droppings fall away from the food and charcoal which virtually eliminates flare-ups and smoke.
Q: What are some of the cooking times of food on Mike’s Vertical Grill?
A: Times may vary depending on size, but on average: Hot dogs take just 75-90 seconds. A whole chicken can be cooked in 25-35 minutes. Hamburgers take only 4 to 6 minutes. And a London broil, a inch and a half thick, is perfectly grilled in just 6 to 8 minutes!
Q: What type of food works best on this grill?
A: Not only does Mike’s Vertical Grill cook traditional favorites like burgers and hot dogs, but it’s perfect for foods that most people have difficulty cooking on a conventional grill – such as fish, steak and chicken! The Vertical Grill will make any meat cooked in it more savory and mouthwatering. And with its top grilling area, items like mixed vegetables and corn on the cob are a breeze. You can even toast buns!
Q: I have a large family. Can Mike’s Vertical Grill handle a cookout for 25 people?
A: Absolutely! Our grill may be small and portable but it cooks twice as much as a conventional grill of the same size. In fact, the owner, Mike Esposito, routinely feeds 30 to 40 people in his get-togethers with just one of his Vertical Grills.
