Best deal on a George Foreman Grill online

Updated on September 22, 2014

Oh, George!

You kind of already get the idea of what the George Foreman Grill does- it can grill burgers, chicken, or steak in just a few minutes by grilling on both sides at the same time; it can give you that outdoor grilled flavor without you actually having to be outdoors (not that there's anything wrong with that, but if you live in the city like me, sometimes that's just not feasible or realistic), and it's really easy to clean.

I have quite a few personal tricks and tips on how to use the grill, myself. Here's a sampling of my personal favorites, just so you get an idea of how often I use my own personal Foreman Grill. It really is a great product, and it makes life easier for me.

Young George

How great is George's story?

You might not know, however, how freaking awesome George Foreman's story is. This guy essentially grew up in the hood, eventually robbing people just to make a few bucks here and there, on the run from the law, until one day the cops were after George, and he said, "If I ever get out of this mess, I'm turning my life around." He did get out of it, and he did, in fact, turn his life around.

George got really good at boxing really quickly, ascending to the heavyweight championship of the world at the young age of 24, knocking out Joe Frasier and defending his title twice before losing it to Muhammad Ali. After that, George focused on preaching until, in his mid-40s, he realized he was broke and needed to box again to make ends meet. Unbelievably, George knocked out people half his age to once again become the heavyweight champion of the world, this time at age 45, and didn't retire from boxing until he was 48. Unreal.

After that, George went on to become business partners with a guy who had designed a phenomenal grill, and with George's wife's blessing, the product was launched. Although it wasn't an overnight success, the grill went on to become a huge hit, and to make George more money than he ever made off of boxing.

Me turning the chicken on my Foreman Grill

Time saver

Four steps to perfect chicken (and video)

The accompanying video here is me turning over chicken on the Foreman grill. The "turn" is very much like "the turn" in holdem poker: it can make or break your grilling experience. I like to do the following when grilling chicken on my George Foreman Grill:

  1. Start by marinating the chicken in Italian dressing (there are others, but this stuff is cheap, readily available, and works really well)
  2. After marinating overnight, drop the chicken on the grill, close it, and set a timer for exactly four minutes
  3. Come back and open the grill, turning the chicken (see accompanying video for why this part is so important)
  4. Clean up (start with paper towels after the grill has cooled for five or ten minutes- this saves a lot of scrubbing and "gunk disposal")

If you're using these four steps, your journey to terrific chicken should actually be really simple. I've used these steps at least a dozen times now, and every time, the bird comes out great. One final tip - turn off the grill at the end if you have a really thick piece of chicken, and open it up, leaving the least cooked side exposed to only the bottom grill. This should allow for even the thickest pieces to cook.

Iconic George, now a world class salesman


Yeah, so?

Why does this matter? Because I think George Foreman is a pretty cool guy, and I don't mind supporting people I think are cool with product endorsements, plain and simple. Plus I have eaten maybe 7 of my last 20 suppers cooked on a Foreman Grill! It has made my life easier, it's affordable, and George is really cool. So there.

If you have recipes you like to use on your George Foreman Lean, Mean, Grilling Machine (boy, that's a mouthful, isn't it?), please feel free to share them with me here! I'm always looking for new, especially easy, recipes to use on my grill, and I love experimenting with new techniques. Also, if you have a way you especially like to use to clean your grill, besides the one in the video, let me know. I'd love to hear from you!
