Question about Barbeques Galore Capt'n Cook 4-Burner (NG) Grill

2 Answers

BBQ Galore Capt'n Cook 4 burner gas grill won't get hot.

I tried several different "filled" propane tanks, cleaned the grill and still don't get a strong flame. I've replaced the regulator a few months ago, but the problem is back... Do I need a specific regulator to fix this?

    Have you made sure the gas pressure coming out of the regulator is what the manufacturer calls for?

Most modern gas regulators have a safety feature to prevent gas left on. If you shut off the tank first and then turn off the burners, it will trigger and keep the gas flow at a very reduce flow to prevent you from turning on the tank again with the burners left on and not realizing it. Turn everything off and then turn on tank first, followed by the burners and this will solve most problems of a low flame or a bbq that won't get hot.

You can buy a gas pressure guage from any HVAC supply house, and possibly at a gas utility office or the retailer that sold the grill.

It taps into the manifold, or gas valve.

For most LP systems you are looking for 11 to 14 PSI but double check with your system. You may can find it on the owners manual or on the data sticker.

Be shure to shut off the gas before you remove the plug and hook up the guage. Most plugs are either allen wrench or square head plugs.

New Capt Cook 4 burner - even on Low it goes through 500 degrees in minutes, and there is hardly any difference in flame size between Hi and Low. what's wrong with it - why can't it stay at a low...


I suspect you have a propane grill or it at least the burner orifices are for propane. Because on Natural gas, what you described is virtually impossible. Is it safe to continue to use the grill? Certainly not. Get back in touch with BBQ's Galore dealer you purchased it from (as it's still under Warranty) and have them to either service it or replace it.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

No, John, Yo do not want to use the rotisserie rod/spit without the wooden handle. Call BBQ's Galore Customer Service 800-752-3085 for a replace handle. If they can't help you, go to the following link and search by the Model Number of your grill (FYI - Capt Cook is not a model number).

Can i get parts to convert my capn cook 4 burner bbq grill to lp


The BBQ's Galore grills are the only ones that are approved to be field converted. All you need a 4 LP Gas Burner Orifices and a Hose Regulator Assembly to hook to a LP Gas grill tank. You can buy the orifices from BBQ's Galore and the Hose/Regulator Assembly from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills & accessories for about $30.00. Gas grill burner orifices are pretty universal, so any LP Gas ones should work.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The original BBQ's Galore went bankrupt, but was bought by new owners, who still operate it as BBQ's Galore. However, they did buy any of the older company's parts supply. However, all you need are the burner orifices for each burner (including the rear burner) and a Hose/Regulator Assembly to connect the grill to the grill tank. Follow the conversion instructions in the Owner's Manual (see link below) and you should be able to do it.

http://www.grill-repair.com/images/grill/turbosts.pdf

I suspect if you call BBQ's Customer Support 800-752-3085. They can provide the orifices, as they are universal in fit. The Hose/Regulator Assembly can be purchased from any hardware store or home improvement center that sells grills and accessories, for about $30.00.

Once converted, you will see marked improvement in the heating capacity of Propane Gas, as opposed to Natural Gas. The grill will preheat faster and maintain higher temperatures longer.

I hope this helped you, Bradley and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

Want to convert my Capt N Cook barbeque from propane to gas. Have the gas line already to hook up to barbeque but need to know what parts I need to replace and add to accomplish this Thanks


You need Natural Gas Burner orifices and perhaps, a new manifold.Also, a 12' long rubber quick disconnect hose (that's a Code Requirement) and all the necessary fittings. Contact your local BBQ Galore for the parts you need.

Hi I have 4 burner gas grill capt. Cook, but only 1 burner work at a time, if I turn on any other burner all goes off.


I am guessing this is an LP grill...... it sounds like the regulator has gone bad, purchase a new regulator and hose and put it on the tank...... also, make sure you have gas in the tank.

Converting to gas


If it does not get hot enough when using natural gas then the small propane orfices must be sized larger for the equivalent BTU rating of propane. Conversion tables are online via Google

Gas grill conversion


It's safe, but you need to keep in mind that propane burns hotter than natural gas, so you won't need to turn the burners up as high for the same heat. Here's an article that explains some of the differences (but doesn't really answer your question): http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrills/a/aa030505a.htm

Bottom line -- it's safe if you don't leave it cranked up to high flame. Two-thirds flame on propane should give about the same heat as full burner on natural gas.

Of course, you could change the jets. That would compensate for all the differences between NG and propane, and you could run the grill on full high heat if you wanted to.
