Default fireproofing

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?

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?

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

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.

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.
