Tip & How-To about Brinkmann 815-3786-0 Turkey Fryer
I bought my fryer in November 2010 and it worked good for that Thanksgiving. Went to use it this year and thermocuople kept shutting off. So I used a brick to kep red button pressed in. What a pain.
After turkey day I removed my thermocouple and installed a direct conection.
I'm not sure about the exact thread size the Brinkman hose end and brass fitting on burner uses. I tried using a 1/16" NPT fitting but it is incorrect. However, I found 8mm threads to be the closet. Use thread sealant and it works great!
I bought a McMaster-Carr p/n 93590A220; Metric 18-8 Stainless Steel Coupling Nut M8 Screw Sz, 1.25mm Pitch, 38mm Length, 16mm Width, $7.95. and used it to connect the hose end to brass fitting on burner.
Yes this is considered a safety risk so modify at your own risk. No one I know of ever walks away druing use.
