I'm putting a drop-in grill into a wooden kitchen base. Can I get a way with ceramic tile left over from an oven design for heat protection of will I have to buy a [$700] stainless steel heat shield [jacket]?

Or how else to shield?

Re: fireproofing
Code (in most places)=4" of masonry, 2" air gap to combustible materials.

Re: fireproofing
I assume you mean EITHER 4" masonry OR 2" air ?? And the 2" applies to under the grill also? Of course this may vary on the brand of grill?

Re: fireproofing
No, both, but that is for interior use. Do you have a pic of your project?

Re: fireproofing

Re: fireproofing
As a rule, outdoors and wood structures (without a roof, i.e. indoors) do not play well together. Without seeing it, all I can say is don't pay 700 bucks for a SS sleeve, but do not ignore code which is normally a MINIMUM, not the optimum.

Re: fireproofing
The wood is acacia. Will not rot for 25 years. The structure is tested to hold 350-lbs. But there's a still a fire issue. I'll figure it out.
