Hot tips from Food Network Kitchens’ Katherine Alford:

Use a metal cooling rack to keep small or thin foods like shrimp and asparagus from falling through the grates. Just place the rack upside down on the grill so it lies flat, positioning it so the wires are perpendicular to the grates. The grill's heat may discolor or weaken the rack over time, so use a sturdy one.
