Afternoon grilling should be simple, with no stress, no muss, and no fuss. It should be enjoyable. It should produce a tasty meal that comes together all at once to be shared hot and fresh with the ones you love. With the perfect BBQ pan, afternoon grilling can be easy, with minimal clean up afterwards.
Let’s talk about BBQ pans… The perfect BBQ pan should have durable nonstick coating that is resistant to extremely high temps. It should be large enough to fit a lot of food on it, and it should be easy to clean.
Sticky sugary marinades and sauces can reap havock on inferior BBQ pans. In an inferior pan, the high temperatures that are inherent to grilling will most definitely scorch and burn the sauce to the pan. I’ve ruined quite a few cheap-o BBQ pans that way.
But now, I’ve finally found a BBQ pan that’s great for easy afternoon grilling, or grilling any time of the day. The Technique Hard Anodized 18″x12″ BBQ pan with DuPont Teflon nonstick coating could quite possibly be the perfect BBQ pan.
It measures a generous 18″L x 12″W x 2″, it’s made of hard anodized aluminum for even heat conduction, and it’s heat safe to 500F. The pan’s interior is bowed ever so slightly down the center for fat run-off into collection channels that run around the edges. This feature also conveniently prevents flare-ups.
This BBQ pan is coated with DuPont Teflon ScratchGuard nonstick interior coating for easy food release, and it is metal utensil safe. But the best thing about this Technique BBQ Pan is that cleaning it up is a breeze. After it cools down, give it a quick scrub in some soapy water, and it’s good as new again.
So as the afternoon dwindles, there’s more time to relax and play with some furry friends.

Here’s a quick and easy BBQ meal recipe that I created while trying out the Technique Hard Anodized 18″x12″ BBQ pan with DuPont Teflon nonstick coating.
Sweet Soy Steak BBQ with Mushrooms and Corn Recipe
- 6 ears fresh sweet corn in husk
- 2 1/2 pound London Broil steak
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tsp Kosher salt, divided
- 4 tsp honey
- 1 small yellow onion, thin sliced
- 12 oz Crimini or small Portabella mushrooms, quartered
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
Place ears of corn in large bowl or stock pot and cover with water. Allow corn to soak for 2-4 hours then drain the water.
Mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt. Pour this Sweet Soy Marinade over the London Broil steak and coat both sides of the steak with marinade. Sprinkle one side of the steak with sliced onions and then drizzle it with 2 tsp of the honey. Turn the steak then repeat with onions and honey on the other side. Allow steak to marinate in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours, turning it a few times.
Preheat the grill to medium high heat and place the corn on the grill. Turn the corn every 10 minutes and cook for 30 minutes total. Remove the corn and place it in a covered bowl or large sauce pot with the lid on. Allow corn to steam covered for 10-15 more minutes then cut it from the cob. Season corn with salt & pepper and mix in the butter before serving.
While the corn is grilling, preheat the grill pan on the BBQ grill for 10-15 minutes. Brush the onions and excess marinade from the steak, then place it on the center of the Technique Hard Anodized 18″x12″ BBQ pan with DuPont Teflon nonstick coating. Reserve excess marinade for basting. Allow the steak to sear and cook without moving it for 8-10 minutes on the covered grill, occasionally basting with marinade. Turn the steak and baste with marinade. Mix the mushrooms with the oil, then add mushrooms to the grill pan with remaining onions from the marinade. Cover and cook, basting ocasionally, for another 8-10 minutes for medium to medium rare. Be sure to stir mushrooms and onions occasionally while cooking to prevent burning them.
Allow steak to rest for 10 minutes, slice thin, serve and enjoy!
