Question about Brinkmann 805-2101 All-in-One Grill / Smoker

1 Answer

I just bought this smoker from Home Depot and i was looking at the grates, it looks like paint or something on them< my question is should I build a big fire in the grill first to burn the paint off the grates or how should I go about setting the grates and get ready to smoke or grill some meat.

    Are you certain you don't have the briquette grate mixed up with the cooking grate? I've never seen a cooking grid with paint? Cooking grates are usually made of stainless steel or porcelain covered metal. Do all the grates have paint on them? It doesn't sound right to me.

I need to replace a spray paint gun for a paint zoom model pz110. Where can I find it?

Home Depot, and eBay list that model.

Might be best to go into Home Depot with it and ask at the information counter for them to look in their computer to suggest how to replace. Unsure what exactly needs to be replaced - a used sprayer sold for $40 last year online, so it may be affordable to buy an entire unit used.

What's the best way to clean an oil painting. It looks as if this painting might have hung in a smokers home and is dingy and a bit 'yellowed'. I'm an artist and have access to quite a number of produ

Look at the back of it to see if it has yellowed. If there are yellow stains on the frame and the back, then it is not the varnish in the oil paint that has yellowed. You can then use something like 409 cleaner to get the stains off. You should blot the painting and not scrub or wipe it. If the varnish is yellowing you can get a product called conservationists liquid and apply that as per the directions to help with the varnish problem.

I lost the grill grate for my lil barbeque bucket. do you know where i can get a replacement grate? it's 13" across. thanks!

Most home centers (Lowe's & Home Depot) and other big bx stores, that sell grills and accessories, carry universal replacement grates in different shapes and sizes. Since you know the diameter, you're half way there.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

Tdwbit269@aol.commy gun will not shut off even when i pull the trigger, liquid keeps flowing out. good thing is that i am getting something through the hose so that means my machine is working right?

You need a re-build kit for your gun.

The needle that pulls back when you squeeze the trigger is no longer making a seal when you release the trigger.
The problem is worse when you spray thin oil-based paints.

Depending on the gun, Sherwin Williams has kits for the Graco gun. That's where we bought ours for years up until I retired from painting.
Home Depot and Lowes may have parts.

Interior surface of big green egg is flaking off. what cause and what fix. thanks

hello. Eventually the heat and moisture take a toll. Remove all of the flaking with a wire brush then prime and paint it with the special high temperature grill primer and paint now plentiful at home depot, lowes, and many hardware stores. Enjoy your grilling.

My grate is rusting. I've never washed it or put it into a dishwasher. I's not supposed to rust!

Hello. You are correct. You could contact weber and state your case, or if you just want to get on with life, use some WD-40 penetrating lubrication to remove the rust, then cover those areas with some high temperature grill paint available at home depot, lowes, and most other hardware stores. Joe
