Same here. I enjoy watching Alton's shows but I wouldn't fire up the grill for grilled cheese sandwiches.
And in my very humble opinion, the cheese didn't look all that appetizing when he scraped it off those homemade implements he made and plopped it on the bread. It would also seem like wrapping it in foil would make it soggy.
I too love a crispy 'grilled' cheese sammie, fried in a hot pan, with sliced tomatoes, and a bowl of tomato soup.
