Grill All Year Long - Anywhere!
Infrared or radiation energy remains a mystery to many people despite the fact that it is the most widely experienced source of energy on earth. In fact, it is literally as common as sunshine. Every day the earth is warmed by the radiant energy from the sun. The sun also generates harmful ultra-violet rays, but they are yet another form of electromagnetic energy. They are not infrared. Because infrared or radiant energy is transferred directly from its source (in this case, the sun) to the object being heated, it can travel through the cold vacuum of space without heating it. But once it reaches the earth and penetrates our skin, the electrons in the atoms of our skin begin to move fast, creating friction which generates heat and causes us to feel warm.
Radiant energy cooks by producing the same molecular activity in food and can be generated with electricity, gas, or wood. In fact, glowing charcoal, itself, emits up to 25% infrared energy. And just as the radiant energy from the sun passes through space without heating it or being diminished by the cold temperatures, infrared energy generated for cooking is not affected by the most frigid temperatures, so you can grill all year long—anywhere!
