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. These parts take some of the greatest beating in a grill. You have direct fire from below and grease from above.
Over time, these drippings can build up on your burners and prevent the burners from working properly. Browse by type below.
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.
Then consider material. 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.
