Masterbuilt Model # SQPGD - Low flame

I have the above referenced BBQ and regardless of the position of the knob the flame is always very low. Is this a problem with the regulator? Can someone please help me figure out the problem.

It sure sounds like it's blocked. Purchase a venturi tube cleaner (about $5) or try removing it and lightly tap on the ground to try and unplug the little holes that have filled with debris. If you have access to some air tools, try blowing it out-similar to an air filter of a car.

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.

Your frustration is common because the new tanks all have a safety feature built into them which is a pain in the you know what. Unscrew the tank to reset the safety valve and then screw it in again. That should result in the valve being in the open position and working for you.

Make sure you are using an adjustible high pressure regulator. Make sure there are no obstructions insde the burner tube or burner holes.

How to diagnose a propane BBQ flaming at control knobs


WARNING: this test can be dangerous; do it only if you know what you are doing!
I turned on my two burner propane BBQ. The left side worked OK but flames started coming out of the control knob (front area) on the right, and the right side burner was not lighting.
This is obviously gas leaking out of the front area. If the flames go out when you turn the knobs off then the leak is after the valves, controlled ny the knobs. If the flames stay on and only go out if you turn gas off at the tank then the leak is at the pipe entering the controls. In my case the flames went out with the controls, so I looked underneath. I slowly turned the knob down and saw that the flames (therefore the gas) was coming out of the air regulator/entry hole. I knew at once that the pipe going to the burner must be blocked. Sire enough, when I removed the burners I saw that an insect built a cocoon in the pipe. Clearing it solved the problem.

The oval burner has only very low flame, even when set on high


Every one of these ranges that I have seen with the oval style burner on them have a smaller flame then the normal round burners. And there is very little difference between the low and high settings. It sounds like what you are experiencing is normal. What the GE repairman was adjusting is called the "simmer stop". There is a small flat head screw inside the burner stem. By turning this screw you can adjust the size of the burner on the low position of the burner knob. This should be adjusted to where the burner still stays on when the knob is at the lowest setting. I do not think that you need the burner repaired. From my experience they are all like that.

The difference between the flame bowl and water bowl


You want the wood chips above the heat source and then the liquid above that. The heat source smolders the wood whilst the liquid keeps the meat moist. Remember you want a very low heat.

New electric smoker no instructions!


Put some water soaked hickory chips and some liquid smoke with chicken stock or pinot grigio wine or both in the pan above the heater element. Put yer rubbed and marinated meat in top above the wood mix. Plug it in. Pop a top on a cold brew of yer choice. :D The idea here is low and slow. You want the meat to be at or around 200 and the smoke to flavor the meat. This ain't no grill in 30 and eat, it is a low and slow smoker. It takes all night or day to cook stuff correctly. Low and slow my nizzle :D Party on! What time do we eat? Saturday? You betta get started. LOL

As for holding the knobs that is common with this stove, you could check to see if flame is hitting sensor the burner hole that lines up the sensor may be dirty.
