My Bar B Chef grill grates are totally rusted. Are stainless steel grates better or should I stick with cast iron?


I prefer cast iron. Cast iron heats more evenly and retains temperature better. If they are falling apart from rust, junk them. If they just have surface rust and no holes, all you have to do is brush them with a steel brush at high heat. Wipe them off with a wet rag and then rub it with an onion to provide a teflon layer. if it is really heavy rust, spray oven cleaner on them and hose off. After use or for storage, clean them and then wipe them down with a cooking oil soaked rag. The oil will reduce rust build up.

How do we fix a gas grill that doesn't cook evenly


Usually if you're have hot and cold spots, it's the burners that need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. In addition, cleaning the venturi valves while the burners are out, is equally important. The Venturi valves are part of each burner. You will see them near the open end of the burner (looks like 2 slots cut into each side of the burner) where it fits over the burner orifice. While the burners are out, closely inspect each one for corrosion or rust thru. If you find severe corrosion or rust thru, the burner(s) should be replaced.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Rusted Grill Grate


and why do you want to replace it? just use bit of wirebrush, scarape off biggest bits, wipe rest with cooking oil and use as normal.

after cooking wipe clean (do not wash!!!) and use bit of cooking oil again to preserve it.

How to clean and maintain grills after cooking


When you say oil I assume you mean cooking oil. Cooking oil will do nothing to remove rust. If cast iron grate try to re season them. If steel grate use some S.O.S or a soap pad then spray with Pam. Hank

It takes a very long time to cook anything on the weber grill. it never gets really hot. The grill is about six years old. What do I do to correct this problem?


check for rust/debris on the nozzles (these are small screws with single hole in them inside of the burner, clean the burner, dissassembly and clean the valves on the grill NOT ON THE BOTTLE!

this should solve the problem, alternatively, if burner was not used for long time, regulator maybe stuck in this position and will need replacement.

My Masterbuilt electric smoker stopped heating will cooking


I just bought a new Masterbuilt Smoker by default two weeks ago I borrowed a friend’s to smoke about 30lb. of Salmon to then can. Ran the smoker every day for three day. ON my last batch the heating element would not work. Talk about Frustrated! The Smoker was only 2 yrs. old.

Knowing I borrowed I felt I had to replace. So online to Cabelas and I ordered my buddy a new smoker and had it shipped. I then found this website... GOT TO LOVE the internet. I saw many other people had the same problem. Found an Answer...

The Problem was one of the connector to the heating element was poor quality and if you don't clean your smoker on a regular basis. The heat and moister caused the small copper connector to corrode and the wire to come loose. I took a wood chisel and cut off all the rivets on the back. I was then able to pull the back off with no damage and access the small box in the lower back. I found the connector. Went to the hardware store and bought a replacement for .75 cents. A pair of wire crimpers and the problem was fixed. I also bought ½ inch Sheet metal screws to secure the back it was good as new. So I returned the smoker to my buddy and kept the new one. When it arrived I saw Masterbuilt has since fixed the problem and provided an access panel to the element and connectors.

Tried everything but I never could get the temperature above 200


grill wok replaces charcoal bin
Confirming that it works well. Super idea and very effective tool for keeping the fire consistently hot. Roughly $12 for one at local depot. This takes the frustration factor out.

Temp will stay nicely for an extended period of time. You will use less charcoal, but you do need to check on it every 1 1/2 to 2 hours to keep the temp constant.

Going online and reading the reviews on my smoker from Home Depot I found out that everyone has this problem with this smoker. Without making any adjustments it doesn't get enough air to the coals to make the temp go up. Most people drilled holes into the coal pan and that works fine.
