SOURCE: What is the reason why I can't use lava rocks and

They recommend not modifying a gas grill by adding briskets or lava because it can affect the cooking. It will cause your Burners to clog up. Gas Grills are designed to work perfectly with the shape and distance of the grill and burners. By adding a grate or lava rocks may end the lifetime of your grill prematurely.

So you don't have a lower rack for the rock to set on? Mine did and you just have one layer covering the entire surface.

How much ceramic briquets should be used with this grill


You might try googling "flavorizer bars" and see if you can find the right length to fit your grill. Weber makes these for their gas grills, and they are much better than using lava rocks, ceramic briquettes or tiles. If the bars are too long, you can cut them down to size with a hacksaw. Well worth the extra work as they are far superior to the others.

My husband and I inherited a Charbroil gas grill (model # 4639171) from his mother. There is no flame diffuser, heat plate, or lava rocks over the burners. It is difficult to cook on because anything...


I searched my parts catalog for your model number and came up empty. I believe that I may have parts that will work for you. The closet model number to what you have listed is #4639122. This model takes the angle shaped flame tamers. This model also lists a briquette grate. You can go to my website, www.minxenterprisesinc.com and check out this model number and it will give you dimensions for the parts. You can see if they will fit. I would not get lava rock, purchase either ceramic or porcelian briquettes, as they work much better.

Can we use lava rocks instead of charcoal !


In as much as this smoker uses an electrical element to ignite the charcoal, using lava rock instead would not be an option. As, lava rock doesn't ignite, nor burn. However, if you are dissatisfied with using regular charcoal briquets, switch to all natural lump charcoal. It ignites faster and creates a better smokey flavor than factory made briquets.

Hope this helps you.

Using ceramic briquettes with lp gas grill


Many people enjoy using Lp/gas grills for their ease of use and efficiency. Frustrations caused by flare ups and hot spots encourage the use of a wide variety of briquettes and other products. Ceramic briquettes are most commonly used because they provide an even heating surface and last for several uses.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

  2. Gas grills most often use ceramic briquettes, lava rocks or, more recently, ceramic tiles in order to distribute heat. Ceramic briquettes come in the traditional shape, lava rocks are similar to those used in landscaping, and tiles only differ from briquettes by shape. Traditional charcoal briquettes can be used, though they maintain several disadvantages. Use
  3. Place briquettes, tiles, or lava rocks in a solid layer on a screen between the heating element and the grill surface, making sure to leave space for air to circulate. Light the grill and check to make sure that all areas of the heating element are covered, filling any empty spaces. Advantages
  4. Ceramic briquettes, tiles and lava rocks all serve the same purpose. The advantage comes from their ability to reduce flare-ups and hot spots. They can also be used several times, minimizing set-up and making cleaning easier. Traditional charcoal briquettes are cheap and easy to find. They also provide the smoky flavor associated with traditional charcoal barbecuing. Disadvantages
  5. Ceramic briquettes, tiles, and lava rocks are not as easy to find as traditional charcoal briquettes and are more expensive. Traditional charcoal briquettes do not repel run-off from food, but rather retain it, causing hot spots and flare ups. Charcoal briquettes also need to be replaced after each use and are harder to clean up. Warnings
  6. Any additional product placed inside a lp/gas grill should not come in contact with the heating element. Doing so can cause increased stress to the grill, as well as clog vital gas ports. Always maintain a clean grill. A buildup of old briquettes can cause inadequate performance.

Charcoal in a gas grill...Wassup with that?


Well are they lava rocks or charcoal? The Master Flame series is supposed to have lava rocks. If what you see is charcoal, remove it and replace with the lava rocks. You can order the rocks from Char-Broil's website.
