Default Coals for elecric BBQ?

My Char-Broil electric BBQ has been used so often that the "coals" are
soaked with grease and crumbly.I wonder if I can replace them with lava
rocks? regular briquets?

Not regular briquets for sure - they will catch on fire and if used indoors
might create enough carbon monoxide to be dangerous. I suspect lava rocks
will be ok although I do not know this grill so cannot say for sure.

I'd call Char-Broil. They have a pretty good customer service group.
Better to be safe than sorry.

I have had an electric grill for years, and whenever necessary, take the
grill apart, clean it, and replace the lava rocks. Have never had a problem.
