How much ceramic briquets should be used with this grill


You might try googling "flavorizer bars" and see if you can find the right length to fit your grill. Weber makes these for their gas grills, and they are much better than using lava rocks, ceramic briquettes or tiles. If the bars are too long, you can cut them down to size with a hacksaw. Well worth the extra work as they are far superior to the others.

Char glo indoor gas grill


leave at least 1/4 inch between briquettes. sometimes clients will pile-up briquettes hoping to make the grill hotter or more efficient but the briquettes can become an impediment to heat circulation which will cause heat to spread low. this usually damages the module and control valves. A single layer with small space between each briq is sufficient.

I have a used Thermos 2000 Millenium Gas Grill. Is there supposed to be charcoal on top of the burner cover? The charcoal was there when I got the grill. Thank you.


That's not charcoal or shouldn't be. It's Lava Rock Briquettes. If you want to replace or refresh them. you son find the, at most hardware stores and homes centers that sell grills and accessories.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Grilling!!

Do I need briquettes for my weber silver grill


No, you don't use briquettes with a charcoal grill. Charcoal is slow to heat up any way, adding lava rock (briquettes) would make it even slower and hard to keep lit. However, its OK to add cooking wood chunks after the charcoal has heated up, to add a smokey flavor.

Happy Grilling!!

Have used cottonwoods on smokey joe twice now and each time the briquettes have lost their heat within minutes. Tried using the Weber rapid lighter and they heated up beautifully but as soon as they were...


I've only used Cotton Wood twice. The first time, I had the same experience. The second time, I added a few pieces of all natural, lump charcoal and it kept the Cotton Wood burning at the proper temperature. I suspect the same procedure will work for you.

Happy Grilling!!

I can't get the temperature high enough to go beyon warm, no matter how many briquets I place in the bottom pan.


Most of the time, it's not how much charcoal you use, it's how and where you place the charcoal pan for grilling and searing, as opposed to smoking food. The higher the charcoal pan in the grill, the more air it gets and the charcoal gets hotter. To illustrate this I have included a link to your Owners Manual (in case you have misplaced yours), to you can download and print for future reference. Pay particular attention to page # 9 - Grilling and Searing.

http://images.brinkmann.net/docs/pdf/810-5301-C.pdf

I would add to what your Owners Manual says about what type of charcoal to use, by suggesting that you use all natuarl lump charcoal, instead of briquette type charcoal. It the all natural lump charcoal is easier to light, without starter fluid. Plus, it burns cleaner and hotter than briquette type charcoal.

This should help you solve the issue you're having Happy Grilling!!

Using ceramic briquettes with lp gas grill


Many people enjoy using Lp/gas grills for their ease of use and efficiency. Frustrations caused by flare ups and hot spots encourage the use of a wide variety of briquettes and other products. Ceramic briquettes are most commonly used because they provide an even heating surface and last for several uses.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

  2. Gas grills most often use ceramic briquettes, lava rocks or, more recently, ceramic tiles in order to distribute heat. Ceramic briquettes come in the traditional shape, lava rocks are similar to those used in landscaping, and tiles only differ from briquettes by shape. Traditional charcoal briquettes can be used, though they maintain several disadvantages. Use
  3. Place briquettes, tiles, or lava rocks in a solid layer on a screen between the heating element and the grill surface, making sure to leave space for air to circulate. Light the grill and check to make sure that all areas of the heating element are covered, filling any empty spaces. Advantages
  4. Ceramic briquettes, tiles and lava rocks all serve the same purpose. The advantage comes from their ability to reduce flare-ups and hot spots. They can also be used several times, minimizing set-up and making cleaning easier. Traditional charcoal briquettes are cheap and easy to find. They also provide the smoky flavor associated with traditional charcoal barbecuing. Disadvantages
  5. Ceramic briquettes, tiles, and lava rocks are not as easy to find as traditional charcoal briquettes and are more expensive. Traditional charcoal briquettes do not repel run-off from food, but rather retain it, causing hot spots and flare ups. Charcoal briquettes also need to be replaced after each use and are harder to clean up. Warnings
  6. Any additional product placed inside a lp/gas grill should not come in contact with the heating element. Doing so can cause increased stress to the grill, as well as clog vital gas ports. Always maintain a clean grill. A buildup of old briquettes can cause inadequate performance.
