Make sure the vents are open both on the side and chimney. If you are using as bbq light fire in the large section.The small section is for cold smoking as the heat sorce is further away.
I have a brinkman myself and use it regular for smoking mackerel but have only have the large section and not the add on small box. Start as a normal bbq with bricket coals and bbq lighter fluid with both vents open. Leave for twenty mins to become ash covered this eliminates oil taste in food as it is burnt off before food is put in.Then put in oak chippings or beech, hickory,or as I find a mixture of apple and oak to be the best I use strips of wet toweling to put around main lid when closed keeping more smoke in the main box.Keep main vent half open on the left of drum and regulate air flow from vent on chimny stack only open half inch or so.If you want to get a heat bust open lid and put over coals shavings rather than woodchips this will egnite an as soon as it does shut lid down again and watch temp rise. Mine goes upto 3oo deg and settles at about 250 deg. Repeat shavings every ten mins or so to keep temps up.Fish is done perfect in about 45 mins

Basic question: which is the low heat setting on a broil-mate BBQ and which is high? Thick bars or thin bars?

Thin and thick bars look like a flame small at the bottom and bigger as you go up, so I would say the small bars would be low heat.

Low flame

turn everything off and disconnect the regulator from the gas tank
turn the bbq on high, every valve on high.
leave it like that for 3 minutes.
turn all the valves to off -- completely off.
reconnect the LP cylinder but turn the valve on very, very slowly for the first full 360 degrees.

that is the process for resetting the check valve safety feature which gets triggered by mistake from the presure of a full cylinder with the OPD flaot pressing on the liquid.

I have a four burner CharmGlow BBQ. The two burners closest to the tank have high flames, while the two furthest from the tank have very low flames and will blow out if it is windy. I have replaced the...

Since you have done every other thing I would have suggested, try this .....

Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 10 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until it's fully open. Now, the light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If co, light the remaining burners the exact same way, starting with the one next to the one you first lit. Now, did all the burners light and do all the flame heights look correct? If so, you solved the problem. The problem was with the regulator, which was partially closed.

If the above didn't solve the problem, check the burner orifices of the two offending burners for clogs.

Hope this helped you to further troubleshoot & solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Will not produce high flame properly

You probably have a bad regulator which you can buy at most stores that sell BBQ's.

Bbq burner flame too high

If you got water down inside the burner(s), this condition should eventually clear up.

Hi im having a problem with my BBQ when i go to light it it only lights at a really low flame can you help

try opening the tank really slowly. it you open it too quickly the OPD (overfill protection device) in the tank will restrict the gas flow to the BBQ.

Your frustration is common because the new tanks all have a safety feature built into them which is a pain in the you know what. Unscrew the tank to reset the safety valve and then screw it in again. That should result in the valve being in the open position and working for you.
