Alfresco Briquette Tray

There are a lot of features that make the Alfresco LX2 models one of the most desirable gas grills available. The infrared technology developed in the original Alfresco models made these grills one of only three gas grills in the world with access to original infrared grill burners. This feature along with 304 stainless steel and American made construction made the Alfresco an extraordinary grill ten years ago.

Today the LX2 models have added lights, an invisible rotisserie motor, hot-surface ignitor electrodes and many other features and benefits so the Alfresco grills are extraordinary appliances even without the infrared burners that are also available with the LX2 model.

The heavy gauge 304 stainless steel U shaped burners that are installed when infrared burners are not in the grill have this heat shield briquette support tray above the burner. The Alfresco briquette tray is engineered to add flavor to food while barbecuing. As grease, marinades and other drippings drop from the grilling surface the hot briquettes vaporize the moisture so flavor is added to circulating convectional heat surrounding and cooking food. Heat from the burners is also conducted through the briquettes causing an even distribution of heat and a much hotter radiant heat that increases the temperature at the grill grates.

Check your measurements The briquette tray that bends up and down like this one has been used a couple of different ways. As you can see in these two different images the briquette tray has come with and without additional brackets that lock briquettes into the tray.

This is great for easy cleaning of the stainless steel because the entire tray with briquettes can be lifted out of the barbecue without the briquettes falling all over the place. This makes it easy to spray the entire assembly with a good degreaser, let it sit a bit and then spray it with a hose before replacing the support tray.

The new Alfresco briquettes that are white and have the Alfresco "A" logo carved into the surface are a heavier briquette with more mass than the older style red pyramid briquettes. They are also a lot more expensive if they ever need to be replaced. As you can see in the images above it is still possible to replace briquettes with red pyramid briquettes. These briquettes are a lot less expensive and just barely fit into the opening in the tray.
