"Can old Refrigerator Grill type shelf racks be used as BBQ grills?"



April 14, 2010

Ted, I applaud you for your patience and the gift of your time.

I've seen two types of old refrigerator shelves that might be suitable to BBQ food on, ... a shiny metal type and a duller type. Your thoughts?

And your thoughts on how safe they would be to support bbq lava rocks.

Thank you so much, Scott

Hi, Scott. I think refrigerator shelves are nickel plated rather than zinc plated. In any case, I don't think it's anything to worry about for support of lava rocks, but I don't know about trying to cook food on them -- you don't know what they are, zinc, lacquered zinc, nickel, stainless steel, etc. But if you get them good and hot and nothing happens to them, they stay shiny, then they are probably either stainless steel or nickel plated, either of which would be okay.
