Patio cooking

I know a lot of you do your cooking on your patio.
Does anyone have a insulated roof on your patio? Does the insulation do any good for temps compared to patio roof with no insulation?
I know in this Florida sun it gets hott under this uninsulated patio, to hot to cook. I don't want to melt my BGE.

    My large sits under the eves of the house and the small is under the insulated roof by the pool. Never had any problems. other then when the wind is from the wrong direction and the smoke from the small gets under the insulated patio cover, 300 ft sq.

    My eggs are out with direcet element exposure no covers. -22° plus wind chill and last summer 118°. Over 2 years now and the eggs don't seem to know any difference.

    Do you think the insulated roof is that much cooler than non insulated?

    Insulated roofs are MUCH cooler than non insulated! I am putting up a metal roofed building right now, and the difference between the radiated heat from the insulated and non isulated areas is huge. I would without question insulate.

    You can get a BGE up to 1000 degrees, how hot does it get where you are that you are concerned about melting something like that? The surface of the Sun?
