Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jims Effective, but a lot of work
I have a Brinkman grill, that is now just over years old. The original heat tents rusted out in about a year, so I purchased these Stainless steel Heat tents to replace them.
My Brinkman Grill has 4 heat Tents, so at $11 each, this cost me 30% of the purchase price of the grill, which seems like a lot of money for a piece of steel, and some hardware. With new burners also, it was closer to 50%
These heat tents are the only ones HD Carries, but they are way too big to directly replace the original tents.so I had to cut them down quite a bit to fit.
With that said, after $42 and a couple of hours work with some tin snips, my grill is as good as new. They do work very well (i'd say better than the originals) after the modifications.
This most recent set, was the second time I've done this, as the new set rusted out in about a year, just like the original set. I'm expecting to replace the whole grill in about a year's time, so I figured it was worth it, barely.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by KenB So far so good
So far it is working great. The only thing is I need 4 of them and it is a little pricey.

Don't waste your money. I bought these for my Charmglow grill and witin 3 months, I see rust everywhere on these tents. Luckily, I noticed the rust before 90 days and I had them returned within the 90 return period. Home Depot was kind to take them back eventhough I didn't have any of the packaging material, had my receipt though. These are definitely not stainless steel.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by KenB Nice quality but base length too long
I bought this heat tent to replace my rusted/ corroded tent in my Vermont Castings Grill. I thought it would be easy to install since it had an expandable attachment. The problem was that the base was too long so I had to cut the three base pieces to fit my grill.
It would have been a great product if the base length were 3 inches shorter.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Sam1 THIS IS NOT STAINLESS STEEL
Had it returned without even opening the package after trying on the magnet. The material is highly magnetic, it is a cheap grade polished steel. Must get rusted very quick.
