What is a Flame Tamer or a Vaporizer?

Flame tamers (also referred to as Vaporizer bar) provide better heat distribution, controlled cooking and react quicker to the heat controls.

How the flame tamer works: 

1.     The burner heats up the flame tamer underneath the grill, which in turn heats the food on the grill.

2.     The natural food juices produced during cooking fall onto the hot flame tamer below and vaporise.

3.     The subsequent rising smoke bastes the food, as it travels upwards, imparting that unique barbecued flavour.

Note: More even cooking of food will be achieved by using the BBQ with the hood down.  This should only be done with the burners on low.
