A foil diffuser is made by folding a long piece of heavy foil in half, shiny side out. The edges are crumpled together on all sides. The final size must be larger than the bottom of the pan you are using. When using your BBQ as an oven, the diffuser deflects the direct heat from the burners to prevent scorching the food in the bottom of the pan.
