Lava rocks

donai2April 22, 2002

I just purchased a Sunbeam Grillmaster with dual burners and a side burner.

I was wondering if I should use lava rocks and where to put them. There is no grate above the burners other than the cooking grid.

How old is your grill?

To the best of my knowledge, the newer grills no longer can accomodate lava rocks or ceramic briquets. I had an older Sunbeam that did, and when it died, I looked around and couldn't find any grills except for some made by Great Outdoors that could accomodate lava rocks.

The new Sunbeams have a porcelain coated bar covering the burners that mimics the "flavor bars" of the Weber. I think they stopped using lava rocks to avoid flare-ups. I personally liked them -- it may have been psychological, but I think it gave it more of a barbequed taste.

In either case, I just got a new Sunbeam, and there's no place for lava rocks : (

Thanks to Susan for the response.
Shows how ignorant I am.
You're correct. The new Sunbeam's are designed to not need lava rocks.
I appreciate your help.

can you adapt this new grates to older sunbeam grills. I know there is a mail order home repair catalog that sells something like this to replace lava rocks or those squares.
