Out of the Blue

Well we finally raised the flag on the relocated Manstovia yesterday. I just made a couple of burgers, but I was happy to be able to check out the new grill. Unfortunately, I was not able to get the kind of sear I am used to from my charcoal days. This is understandable since I was only able to get this up to about 550℉, which is a far cry from the 650℉ the manufacturer says the grill can reach. So I need to do some research on whether there is something wrong about the gas regulator valve, and whether it can be repaired or replaced. The burgers actually came out okay, but there was definitely room for improvement. This will be that much more important when it comes to grilling steaks, so I definitely want to address it if I can.

That is a decent amount of BTUs for the small size. If you have an IR camera, give it a look at see how uniform the surface temperature is. Probably not very with poor airflow control from cheap grills. They are really fun (IR cameras, and can be gotten to work with a phone for reasonably cheap)!

I personally have never had a gas grill that I bought over the years get over 550 out of the box. The lava rocks have helped some as it retains heat.


MY MAN! Where you been!?

Mine gets that high, I cranked it and burned the inside to get all of the manufacturer paint and sealant out of it so now it is just metal after I scraped the shit out of it and brought it down to rough metal. I have a 3 line burner with a main line to my house gas line. No worries on tanks.

It is a Weber Genesis Silver 8133.

Google says "All Weber gas grills are designed to reach 500° - 550° F, with the burners set to high, and the lid closed, after about 10-15 minutes. There are a few key things to keep in mind if you are having trouble getting your grill up to the high temperature range."

But it falls just shy of 650.

I have a barrel smoker/grill as well as a cheap gas burning grill for when we have th larger gatherings to feed everyone. Next to those sits my 4 rack smoker.

It is a busy deck.
