What Grill Heat Plates Can Do For Your Grill
Heat plates rest on your gas grill burners and disperse the heat that the burner produces evenly throughout the grilling surface. This helps prevent uneven cooking and maximizes your grilling space to fit more meats. Gas grill heat plates also protect your burners from corrosive grease and other drippings that fall from meat and foods during grilling. Over time, these drippings can build up on your burners and prevent the burners from working properly. In addition to protecting the burners, heat plates vaporize drippings so that they don’t build up on the plates themselves, and many plates use materials that are bacteria resistant. Additionally, when meat drippings fall onto the gas grill heat plates, the plates release the flavor from the drippings into the air surrounding the grill. The aroma of this vapor adds flavor to whatever you are grilling.
How to Buy a Gas Grill Heat Plate
The first thing you need to consider when buying a grill heat plate is the size of your grill's burners. The plates should be big enough to protect the burners and vaporize enough meat drippings. Check your grill's owner's manual or simply use a tape measurer to find the length, width and height of the burners. Gas grill heat plates come in stainless steel, porcelain and porcelain coated stainless steel. All of these materials are able to protect your burner and add flavor to your food, so you should pick a material that goes well with your grill and that you enjoy.
