OCI Radiant Heat Shields For E26 Model Gas BBQ Grills.

The 26 Inch models sold by Outdoor Concepts, Inc. were designed like the original DCS 26 models and were primarily sold to building companies whereas the other OCI models were mostly sold to residential owners. The Elite 26 model does not have the OCI smoker or the rotisserie and did not ever have an infrared sear burner option. If the grill is not maintained well and cleaned periodically the first part of the grill which will usually need to be replaced is the radiant heat shield installed above the U burners and below the stainless cooking grates. These are generally the first part of the OCI grill to be replaced because dripping sauces, marinades and grease is vaporized when dripping onto these hot trays from above and the carbon fumes stain the stainless from below. Without simple yearly cleanings these radiant heat shields will last approximately five years.

Stainless Radiant Assembly

This is the original OCI-E26 radiant grill heat shield but Outdoor Concepts, Inc rarely runs fabrication of these radiants. In the image below we can see there are other radiants that are manufactured for other high-end gas grills which we can make to fit.

When OCI runs these heat shields, we buy all we can get but most of the time we are using the stainless steel radiant heat shields shown below.

Replace The Radiant Heat Shield

Solution One:
Because OCI has not been shipping replacement parts for many of the Outdoor Concepts barbecue grill models we have used our local clients to find high-quality replacements for the radiants in the E26 models.

One of the solutions we have been using is to install these stainless radiant trays shown in this image which these function exactly the same as the OCI radiant heat shields. When we have the OCI trays we ship them but even when OCI is not sending parts we can use these as replacement trays.

These stainless steel radiant heat shields are supported inside the OCI barbecue grill by the small support pins welded inside the grill. These install exactly the same and grill exactly the same as the original OCI radiant diffuser shields.

Solution Two:
The other solution we have found for the E26 models is the radiant rod trays used in the OCI E36 and E48 models.

As we can see in this image the radiant tray lines up perfectly with the support rods welded inside the E26 firebox so we can use the OCI solid stainless tubular radiant heat shields as a secondary option when replacing these radiant shields.

These OCI radiant rod trays are among the heaviest stainless radiant heat shields of any high quality American Made stainless steel barbecue.

Solution Three:
Although the least of the radiants this is also the least expensive solution. Item 92350 is 4 stainless plates and each is 8 inches by 13 inches. The four shields come with hardware so we can lay-out any size we wish and bolt-together any number of the 4 radiant shields in order to create what ever size heat shield we need.

For this OCI E26 model I set 3 of the 4 trays to overlap. I did not need the fourth heat shield but I installed it above the other three and ran the enclosed bolts through to hold the entire assembly together as a heat shield for the E26 gas barbecue grill.

This is a High-Quality Radiant Shield that was used in an older DCS gas grill. Since OCI was designed by the grilling experts that left Dynamic Cooking Systems when the company was sold over 10 years ago there are a lot of OCI details that are the same or similar to DCS grill parts.

This DCS Radiant Trays is a Perfect Fit for the OCI radiant in the Twenty-Six inch gas barbecue grill.

Option One is still the best fit because of the perforations but this radiant is also a great replacement for the OCI 26 heat shield replacement.

The OCI radiant rod trays were designed just like the original DCS radiant heat shields except Outdoor Concepts installed stainless steel tubes instead of porcelain tubes in the locking tray support. American made 304 stainless steel will last forever when it is properly maintained and these radiants generate a lot of control over additional heat conducted through the stainless tubes.

Usually the OCI radiant heat shields are solid 18 gauge 304 stainless steel. Once in awhile they'll send these radiants with lots of tiny holes which allow the heat to break down grease faster -- but if left dirty these will fall apart faster also.

With minimal maintenance OCI grill parts will last forever just like so many other American made 304 stainless grill parts but it is important to burn-off greases and clean the barbeque periodically.
