Replacement Heat Shields for Great Outdoor Model BBQ's

Great Outdoors barbecues have faded into and out-of use over the years and have been manufactred by different companies who then sell the grill models to be branded by name. The various Great Outdoors grill parts are very different from model to model with some models using lava rocks or briquettes and others using heat shields below the cooking grids. The difference is mostly an opinion depending on the cook but the idea behind using lava rocks or briquettes for heat conduction is to add heat radiating off the conductive layer just below the grilling grates. Done well this will allow the cooking surface to be hotter than the rest of the area inside the closed hood where hot air circulates to cook our food.
