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!!

I have Weber Genisi Silver model 8133 which has been hook up to a natural gas line. We have moved to a new location and can only use a propane tank hook up. Do I need a adaption for conversion to...


Unfortunately, you cannot use your Natural Gas Grill on Propane Gas. In addition, there is no conversion kit for Weber Grills. That's why they make two different gas models. Conversion of a grill becomes a safety issue. As each model Weber grill is tested and approved only for the specific gas type. Attempts to convert it voids that approval.

I'm sorry I didn't have better news. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Replacing the crossover ignition system in my weber genesis silver b grill. it has a propane tank. the small metal cover over the spark ignitor has rusted out.


What you're referring to is called a Collection Box. It traps gas so it will ignite. You can purchase a new one directly from Weber or from Appliance Factory Parts http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/

Hope this helps you get the part you need. Happy Grilling!!

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!!

Need manual for weber silver grill


On the Weber website, go under "Help" and then there's a section called "Download a Manual". You'll have to know (almost exactly) what model grill you're looking for, because otherwise searching through each manual would take you a decade.

Remove the cooking grids and briquette grid if applicable, so you can see the burners when lit. It should be an even blue flame thoughout. If not, you may need a cleaning or replace burner(s).

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.
