They recommend not modifying a gas grill by adding briskets or lava because it can affect the cooking. It will cause your Burners to clog up. Gas Grills are designed to work perfectly with the shape and distance of the grill and burners. By adding a grate or lava rocks may end the lifetime of your grill prematurely.

What kind of charcoal or lava rock do I buy for my indoor Char-glo waste king universal grill


You have a gas grill, so you don't want charcoal. You need lava rock, any big box hardware store carries them (or Amazon). Doesn't really matter what brand, just get a size of rock that won't fall through the grate. Take a piece of your old rock that won't fall through the grate with you to the hardware store. Get something as large or larger.

My husband and I inherited a Charbroil gas grill (model # 4639171) from his mother. There is no flame diffuser, heat plate, or lava rocks over the burners. It is difficult to cook on because anything...


I searched my parts catalog for your model number and came up empty. I believe that I may have parts that will work for you. The closet model number to what you have listed is #4639122. This model takes the angle shaped flame tamers. This model also lists a briquette grate. You can go to my website, www.minxenterprisesinc.com and check out this model number and it will give you dimensions for the parts. You can see if they will fit. I would not get lava rock, purchase either ceramic or porcelian briquettes, as they work much better.

Are lava rocks used with charbroil 463731703? Can they be used with this bbq?


Since your grill uses a V - bar flame tamer over the burner, I wouldn't recommend using Lava Rocks. As there is no grate to set them on above the burner. Putting them directly over the V-bar flame tamer, won't allow the burner to heat evenly and you'll have hot and cold spots throughout the cooking surface.

Hope this answers you question.

Does the patio caddie use any kind of charcoal or lava rock


Your model Char-Broil LP Gas Grill use Lava Briquets on the lower grate above the burner(s). Any generic type will work. Just space them in evenly on the grate in one layer. You'll probably have some left over. So store them in an airtight container for future use (replacement).

I went to turn on my gas grill and opened the valve to the propane tank which is indicating "full". Although when I turn the knob(s) to start the grill no propane travels trough the hoses???


its probably not the hoses its probably your burner are clogged with drippings and need to be replaced or just move the lava rocks of off them and tap on the burners the dispense the propane, try that.

Use of Charcoal or Lava Rocks in the Char Broil Patio Caddie?


LP grills are designed to use lava rock ONLY. Charcoal will clog the burners.

Char broil patio caddie, how many coals should it contain?


Your referring to the 'LAVA ROCK' which lines the botton grate. There should be enough to cover the grate 1 layer deep only.

How do you replace a burner on a ducane gas grill


Hello : Here are two solutions , just look which one of them is the most helpful .

  1. Turn off the gas supply and bleed the lines leading to the grill. Remove the gas tank if possible.
  2. Open the grill and remove the grates. In some cases you will need to
    detach the hoses from under the grill using simple hand tools. Other grills may have simple "float in" style of burner. These styles look as if the tubes from the burner leading to the gas supply lines simply "float" into each other. Look for clamps of holders that may need to be removed.
  3. Remove the damaged burner and remove from grill. Take a moment to inspect the other burners and any other hoses in case you need to replace more than one piece. Place the burner in a plastic bag and take it to the home store so you can get the exact parts you need. This removes all guess work.
  4. Before replacing the burner/burners etc, take a moment to clean any material, grease etc from the bottom of the grill. Replace the burners and hoses as needed. Check the connections before reconnecting the gas supply. Turn the gas on and start to flow of gas to the burners without lighting the grill. Make sure the flow is working. Be sure to turn the gas off, let the fuel dissipate before lighting.
  5. With everything working, fire up the grill and enjoy.

Or try these help here :


  1. Turn off the gas supply valve on the tank. Remove the fuel line from the fuel tank by turning the connection nut counter-clockwise with your hand.
  2. Open the Char-Broil gas grill and remove the main cooking grate. You do not need to remove the upper warming racks to change the burners.
  3. Remove the lava rocks from the grill and pull the rock grate out. Unhook the flame spreader from each end where the spreader attaches to the inside body of the grill. The spreader is the angled piece that sits over the burner.
  4. Locate the cotter pin that secures the front of the burner to the grill body. Remove the cotter pin with a pair of needle nose pliers. Lift the burner up and pull the burner venturi tubes out of the gas valve.
  5. Set the new burner inside the grill with the venturi tubes inside the gas valve opening. Install the cotter pin to secure the burner to the grill body. Place the flame spreader back inside the grill and hook the ends to the grill body.
  6. Place the rock grate, lava rocks and cooking grate back inside the grill. Reattach the fuel line to the fuel tank.
Here you need Needle nose pliers.

Please report me which one helped the most .

good luck .

and rate if useful please !

Charcoal in a gas grill...Wassup with that?


Well are they lava rocks or charcoal? The Master Flame series is supposed to have lava rocks. If what you see is charcoal, remove it and replace with the lava rocks. You can order the rocks from Char-Broil's website.
