rivets, stirring vane material, pop rivets and such.  You'll also need
something to diffuse the flame.  I used 4"x4" perforated ceramic tiles by
Char-Broil.  They work fine.
I must have missed the heat diffuser step.  I just have the burner sitting
under the drum.  This could help explain why my bbq'ed coffee is not as good
as air popped.  Interesting.  So you just have ceramic tiles over the burner
(where there is flame), or covering the whole bottom of the grill?  Would
those little ceramic briquettes be equivalent (i've never seen 4x4 tiles,
but i haven't ever looked either)?

My char broil gas grill has some porcelain (SP!!) coated metal plates-guess
that keeps them from rusting-think any kind of metal diffuser would
work-just keep the flames off the drum.  Char broil has a web site-maybe u
can order tiles from them-a couple of pieces of steel might work well also.

I got a bot of tiles in the grill department of Home Depot (seems like I
spend a lot of time there, but I really don't).  I think they were $12 for
enough to cover both sides of the grill base where flames were exposed.
I'm sure any kind of diffuser would work just as well.

Take a look here at the Char-Broil white perfed ceramic tiles I bought:http://www.homeroaster.com/BBQroast.htmlClick the first pic and you'll get an idea of what you need.  I guess the
briquettes would work too if they shield the beans well enough.  I also
bought that as a Char-Broil replacement part at Home Depot.  My original
grill had only a metal 'tent' over the burner along the center.
The 4x4 tiles rest on a steel grid with a metal plate in the middle part.
Tiles are placed along it on both sides so flames don't have direct contact
with the beans.
