The Kamado Heat Deflector adds great flexibility to your Mi-Fire Grill. It allows you to bake, roast and smoke with indirect heat. Our Heat Deflector circulates the heat around your food to cook it slowly, which keeps it incredibly moist and tender.
COOKING CONFIGURATIONS - BOTTOM POSITION
This is the most popular configuration for cooking food like ribs, boston butts, briskets and poultry at very low temperatures. This configuration allows you to place a drip pan up to 3 inches deep between the ceramic plate and cooking grate.
COOKING CONFIGURATIONS - TOP POSITION
This is the best configuration for baking food like pizza (Pizza Stone required), bread and casseroles. Use the ceramic plate in the top position to allow more heat to circulate around your food. This configuration does not allow a drip pan to be used.
The ceramic plate will darken over time and this is normal. Cleaning solutions should not be used, because they will be absorbed into the plate. If you have drippings that have charred, simply brush off as much as possible with a wire BBQ brush and store in a dry place. To clean off any residual food, simply flip the ceramic plate food side down the next time you cook. The heat from the charcoal with burn it off.
