The smoke will stop when whatever is on the brickettes is burned off. Leave the unit on high heat for about 10 minutes and it should clear it. If not, get replacement product.

My cadac is burning black smoke

Check the venturi tube just behind the control knob and before the burner tube. You will probably find it full of spiders nests. You need to introduce air to the gas and that is where it is regulated.

Changed gas grill burner, now everything cooked is black on outside

1) Sounds like you may have a smoking issue. Find the cause of the smoke and it should resolve the blackness issue.
2) Is everything clean? if not clean grill and if you have cover over burner under grill clean that as well.

Gas grill, yellow flame how do we adjust this

I've got the same grill and was having the same problem - yellow flames coming out the front vents above the knobs. I removed the four burner tubes and they were full of soot and ash. The tubes were still in good condition so I simply knocked them with a screwdriver and a ton of black soot/ash came out. All the screws that hold them in place were so corroded they were falling apart so I had to drill them out. I cleaned everything up, put it back together with new screws and it works perfectly - nice blue flames!

Propane grill leaves soot on everything

Change your gas regulator and connecting kit if it is more than a year old and living outside. The other possibility is, that if the unit is older, the burner holes have rotted out and become too large. Most grills have replacement burners readily available. Deal with the problem in the order I have presented the solutions and it should be just fine.

Flame uneven

Most Charbroils use an inverted V over the burners. The hot juices and fats drip onto them to make a charcoal type taste. Unless the unit came with bricketts, they're not needed. My unit doesn't have them.
