WHERE DO YOU PUT THE WOOD CHIPS IN A MASTERBUILT SMOKER


The wood chips go in the flame disc smoker bowl, that sits just above the burner. To identify it, it has 3 legs on it. To further help you, I have included a link to the Owners Manual, in case you have misplaced yours. You can download and print it for future reference.

Flame does not burn blue -- it is more yellow and sooty


From what you described, the burner needs to be removed and cleaned and the air shutter adjustment needs to be readjusted. After cleaning and replacing the burner, you can light the unit and then start adjusting the air shutter, until the flames are blue with yellow or orange tips.

Hope this helped you.

Yellow flame


Hello,
You may have a rusted, clogged or damaged burner or venturi tube. With a flashlight, check for spider webs, wasp nests or dirt (mud) dauber nests in the opening of the venturi tube where it connects at each gas valve orifice. Clean it out manually or blow it out with air compressor. Make sure the air adjustment opening (on the end of the burner's venturi tube) has not been changed. If it's closed too much, it will be difficult to light and cause lazy yellow flames. If it's not clogged, the burner may just be old and rusted and the burner holes are not allowing very much gas through anymore. It's also possible the burner has rusted so bad, the burner holes have been enlarged, it is falling apart or has cracks along the burner seams. If so, replace the burner(s) immediately. It is unsafe to use. Your local propane co can usually order the parts you need and some will even do the work, if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself. Bring with you the Make, Model and Serial number of the grill, so they can order the correct parts for your specific grill. Also specify whether it's natural gas2_bing.gif or propane.

ON THE CAST IRON BURNERS THERE IS A PLATE WERE THE BURNER INSERTS INTO THE GAS VALVE. THIS PLATE CAN BE ADJUSTED TO ALLOW MORE/LESS AIR TO THE BURNERS BY SWIVELING THE PLATE .CANTHESE BE REPLACED


This 'adjustable plate' is known as an 'air shutter' located at the tips of the venturri tubes which are the tubes that carry the propane from the valve to the burner. These air shutters allow you to control your flame by mixing oxygen with propane to create a yellow flame to a blue flame. The perfect flame is a uniform blue flame with a small yellow tip.

Unfortunately, these air shutters are considered part of the burner itself and cannot be individually replaced. However, if the burner and venturri tubes are separate from each other, you may be able to get a replacement venturri tube without having to replace the entire burner unit.

Hope this helps.

Second and third burner burns with a low flame. Burner closest to gas supply works as usual.


This problem can be caused by a number of things. Is this a new grill? If not, is this a new problem?

First -Check to see if the fuel hose is bent or kinked.
• Make sure the grill area is clear of dust.
• Make sure the burner and orifice are clean.
• Check for spiders and insects.
• The regulator has a safety device that restricts the flow of gas in the event of a leak. This safety device can be triggered without a gas leak. To reset the safety device, turn all burners "OFF" and close the Liquid Propane cylinder valve. Disconnect the regulator from the Liquid Propane cylinder and wait 1 minute. Reconnect the regulator to the Liquid Propane cylinder and slowly open the valve until the valve is fully open. Light all burners and observe the temperature.

Veranda gas grill - won't light or low flame


One of the major problems with propane gas grills, including the Masterbuilt Veranda, is the pressure regulator. They get to where they do not release enough propane. Some, most, have an adjustment screw that will let you correct these problems. I think I replaced my Veranda regulator with another older pressure regulator from an old grill. Makes you crazy if you don't know this.

King kooker will not burn a blue flame, only a big yellow sooty


You may need to resize the orifice, sounds to me like it is too big. If you have an adjustable orifice try tightening it down a quarter turn at a time till that flame turn pretty. Leave that shutter wide open till you start getting a blue flame. Make sure you have no cob webs blocking the orifice.Blow out and remove all rust from the burner.
