What does a BBQ heat plate do?

Heat plates rest above your gas grill burners and disperse the heat that the burner produces evenly throughout the grilling surface preventing uneven cooking, maximizing grill space, and protecting burners from drippings.


Keeping this in consideration, what does a heat tent do?

Heat shields are also known as burner shields, heat plates, heat tents, radiation shields, heat angles, or flavor grids. They serve the same purpose as a rock grate + rock, protecting the burner from corrosive meat drippings and dispersing heat. They are more common in newer grills.

Subsequently, question is, how do you protect siding from grill heat? Make a heat shield to protect the vinyl siding on rainy days when the grill absolutely must remain near the house. Set a 5x5 piece of sheet metal over the same size piece of fire-resistant drywall and drill holes through the metal into the drywall in the four corners.

Also, what's better lava rock or ceramic briquettes?

Ceramic briquettes are longer lasting than heat shields or lava rocks. Ceramic Briquettes are long lasting in comparison to heat shields or lava rock. They also are the closest replacement to cooking with charcoal to give added flavor without the use of chemicals that are found in the charcoal and lighter fluid.

How many burners do I need on my grill?

For gas grills, you want at least two burners so one can be on and one off. But the more the better. With three or four burners you can have hot, medium, and low zones. You also need a lid that closes fairly tight for smoking.
