The infrared side drop in side burner is designed to focus the gas flame onto the ceramic tile comprised of thousands of holes converting the heat into infrared energy. With temperatures up to 1700 degrees Fahrenheit, there is no cut of meat that this burner will have an issue searing. Additional features include a two stage cooking grid system to raise and lower the grids, and 8mm solid stainless steel cooking grids. With the greater fuel efficiency and higher grill surface temperatures, an infrared side burner is a great tool for any backyard griller. For liquid propane grills only.
