Turco Grid and Heat Shields for Lava Rocks and Briquettes.

These galvanized steel grates are designed to replace the parts in Turco gas BBQ grill models that use briquettes or lava rocks to spread and conduct heat. Many barbecues will us ethe air trapped inside the closed hood to braise temperatures but many barbecues will add to that comnvectional heat by installing a source of conduction just below the grilling grates. Lava rock or briquettes will radiate heat at the grill grid area and cause the barbeque to be hotter in the area where the grill needs heat most.

About DCS model numbers

A lot of these older barbecue models had lava rock trays and natural lava rocks for heat conduction. The primary idea was to conduct heat just below the cooking surface so radiant heat would add to the convectional heat circulating inside the hood of the barbeque.

Briquettes serve the same function but tend to distribute heat evenly and are easier to maintain. Either lava rocks or briquettes will hold and hide grease and old burned up marinades, dirt, spices that drip through and eventually cause destruction if left uncleaned.

Some people claim lava rocks and briquettes will add flavor if left uncleaned. This is not exactly true. If these conduction materials are hot enough to vaporize dripping greases and sauce the moisture will add to the circulating hot air. Some flavor may be absorbed from the vaporized flavoring but not enough to be noticable -- and certainly not enough to accept the damage done to the barbeque as a result of leaving the dirt of the lava rock tray or briquette grid.
