Re: Gray meat

Sounds like the Venturi tube needs adjustment. Look underneath and fully open up the tube so the maximum amount of air gets in. As for the meat being gray, make sure that before you put the meat on, the grill has been pre-heated (with lid closed) until the temperature is pegged, and also always brush the meat with cooking oil to help insure browning. If you marinade meat, let the marinade drain off and dry meat with a paper towel.

I Have a genesis grill from 2008. I can not get enough heat to sear a steak correctly. I was informed to close the grill when cooking, however the meat cooks at the top as well as the bottom. The end...

Have you checked the flame heights when turned to HIGH, on all the main burners. If they're low, then that's the problem. Which can be caused by several things: Burners need cleaning. The Venturi valves are clogged. The grill's regulator is partially closed.

I'm pretty sure you know how to solve the first to causes. So, I'll only deal with the third one.

Turn the propane tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Then reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same way and check their flame height. Do all of them look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem your need to replace your hose/regulator assembly. You can get one at any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Our weber grill (genesis) makes our food grey?? Any ideas why?

Do you clean the grill's flame tamers and the cooking grates regularly? If not the residue may be turning to ash and discoloring your food. Also, not grilling at a high enough temperature could cause discoloration of some meats. In addition, if the LP tank you're using hasn't been used in quite a while (sat full throughout the Winter months), the tank may have some sludge in it. In which case replace the tank.

Hope this helps your solve the problem.

My grill is turning chicken gray. We've let it run a long time, to do a burn off but no luck. Taste isn't an issue but the turkey looked gross. I am using the cast iron plates. We just replaced the igniter...

First of all make sure you are preheating your grill to at least 500". Also make sure your burners are clean and clean your grates every now and then. Last make sure your are putting veggie or olive oil on the meat before putting it on the grates.

I have a Kenmore 4 burner grill that I purchased about 3-4 weeks ago. 3 of the 4 burners have nice blue flames and work very well but the left middle burner gets a huge yellow flame no matter what temp it...

does the same burner flame turn blue if other burners decreast in flow-with that burner on high and others low-is it still yellow? if so Gas Valve needs to be replaced.

My grill does not exceed 300 degrees. The rear burner is barely lit, it sputters with a blue flame. The Front and middle burners run well, blue flame no yellow. I changed the regulator with one from home...

Bypass valve need reset. All grills made after 1996 have this valve.
  • Close the LP tank valve
  • Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position
  • Open the grill lid
  • Turn the LP tank valve until it is completely open
  • Wait 90 seconds
  • Turn the front burner to the HI/Start position
  • Press the igniter until the burner is lit.
  • Turn remaining burners to High
  • Close the lid.
  • The grill should preheat to 500-550 degrees in 10-15 minutes
I called Weber and a rep walk me through it.
