  2. Smoked chicken: to oil or not to oil?

    What kind of smoker are you using? I've been smoking meats for 30 or so years and have never used oil on anything. Also, what kind of chicken are you using and what temp?

  4. Smoked chicken: to oil or not to oil?

    It's my understanding that oil helps smoke adhere to it

  7. Smoked chicken: to oil or not to oil?

    Hey folks, I've been smoking beef and pork for years and have never oiled my meat before putting it on my smoker, because I thought it would keep the smoke from penetrating the meat. But I'm smoking a chicken for the first time and wondering if I should oil it first. Most of the online recipes I've seen say to rub the chicken with oil before you smoke it. Should I oil the chicken to keep it from drying out or should I not oil it to make sure the oil doesn't block the smoke flavor from penetrating the skin and meat? What do you guys do? I really want it to taste like smoke, not just like it's been in the oven. Thanks everybody. Jim

    DO NOT even try to remove the bolts inside the fire box. They were never designed to come out. They're only job is as locators not as fasteners. When you remove the manifold the burners slide out from under the bolts (screws) inside the fire box and to the right. They slide in the same way. The bolts that hold in the manifold can and do come out (sometimes not easy) but with patience, love and lots of penetrating oil (my favorite is PBlaster) they will come out. Once they're out find yourself new ones made from stainless steel. Any hardware store will carry them then also go to an auto parts store and get a tube of Never Seize (a small tube will last nearly a lifetime). Coat the threads of the new screws with this prior to reinstalling. If they should break carefully drill them out but DO NOT use a punch or impact the fire box. After the many years and heat cycles the cast aluminum will be VERY brittle and it will shatter like glass (don't ask me how I know this LOL). You'll find some good tips here https://tvwbb.com/showthread.php?69605-From-Drab-to-Fab-Putting-together-a-quot-How-To-quot-Restoration-Guide Here is another very useful video. The guy who made it used instructions and supply list I supplied to him and was able to provide the video http://virtualwebergasgrill.com/2017/05/cleaning-lubricating-weber-gas-grill-valves/#more-2000 Look through these resources and follow the advice in them and you'll have yourself a fine cooking machine

    Yes hood those are the burners.i was taking off the manifold and noticed that.i believe happened in transport back to the lab,but maybe not.for 20 bucks i said ehhh how bad can it be.too bad those bolts appear to be a nightmare to come off

    Can the experts tell me if this is normal or does it need replacing?im assuming this is the xover tube?
  11. Weber genesis gold B NG to LP

    If the photos are the burners on the grill in question.................than yes. But not because of the fuel switchover simply because they're bad. The burners don't care what kind of gas enters them. They just work.

  14. Weber genesis gold B NG to LP

    Thanks again hood,do you think the burners need to be changed out as well once thr manifold gets changed or no?
  15. Weber genesis gold B NG to LP

    The manifold will include the valves so this will take care of pretty much everything you'll need. I'd ask around here, there is another group that has very active members who will do trades or sales https://tvwbb.com/forum.php You can ask on that group, watch Ebay and Craigslist. Odds are you'll find someone who wants to do a trade, or has one to sell
  16. Major Site Rework

    Im glad this place is up and active and was able to get a response.i was worried i wasnt going to get one or id have to resell the bbq i just picked up.
  17. Weber genesis gold B NG to LP

    Thanks underthehiod,wasnt sure if this forum was active still or not.i beleive the model i have is the high medium low setting on the knobs,if that is what your referring too.what else would i need besides the manifold?just the regulator?this thing is in great shape and the seller wanted 80 and after a hard press i talked him into 20 and he loads it up.aside of maybe some new flavorizer bars,which arent in bad shape anyways,but me being pickey and the heat rack this thing is a beauty.of course compared to my spirit 500,anything is,but my old spirit 500 still makes some mean bbq and tri tip.would i just call weber and ask for a "replacement"lp manifold btw?
  18. Weber genesis gold B NG to LP

    No far from it. That kit BTW is to convert an LP grill to NG not the other way. Also it does nothing to address the valves themselves. On a Weber to do it you need the whole manifold assembly to make a conversion either way.
  19. Weber genesis gold B NG to LP

    Will a kit such as this not work? https://www.walmart.com/ip/Natural-Gas-Conversion-Kit/44807304?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=984&adid=22222222227039373504&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=92171898377&wl4=pla-183828834737&wl5=9010782&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8453308&wl11=online&wl12=44807304&wl13=&veh=sem I'm a charcoal guy so the question of how to switch from charcoal briquettes to wood charcoal is just a matter of simply changing it! Dave
  20. Weber genesis gold B NG to LP

    First you need to determine which type of valve your grill was built with. Weber supplied their grills with 2 different types. One has distinct low/med/high settings the other is a continuously variable type. If you have the CV type it's easy. Simply swap out the orifices and you're golden (this works either way LP to NG or LP to NG). If you have the 3 preset type (most common) you cannot just do an orifice swap (though you will read in many places ignorant people telling you it works fine. It does not. The internal "control orifices" on that type are different between NG to LP. Now knowing that going from LP to NG is possible BUT the valves themselves need to be modified (not for the faint of heart) easy but requires GREAT care and decent skills. So about the only way to do it PROPERLY is to swap out the manifold for the fuel you want. Good luck on the project.
  21. Anyone have any knowledge on the subject?guess weber no longer sells the conversion for this so what can i do?
  22. It should work just fine. They are all pretty much the same.
  23. I needed a new regulator for my Nexgrill (costco) model of grill: 720-0439 (67,000 total BTU) When I enter my model number on grillservices.com website, it says not found.Anyway, I went to home depo and bought this regulator below, WHICH seems to work fine. This regulator looks SMALLER, the metal round part, than the regulator my grill came with. Is this ok to use? It seems to work fine and the one I bought says it's universal. Just didn't know how big of a deal a regulator is these days and wanted some peace of mind.http://www.homedepot.com/p/Replacement-Regulator-with-Hose-711-0003/206303980If you need it, I can take photos of the old regulator next to the new one, but only difference is the old one, the metal round piece was BIGGER.

    Hi Alloy, Welcome to the BBQ Source Forums. I don't see a problem there at all. Lots of burners have different sized holes at the beginning and end to add a bit of extra heat to even temps at the front and back. Dave
  25. Major Site Rework

    Totally open to suggestion on improvements, I think over time the site just got too complicated as far as different sections and forums and whatnot, especially as we lost so many manufacturers since the early 2000's when we basically launched 13 years ago after Don moved it from mindspring. Plus facebook and social media has been a killer to community based websites, something that I hope can start to be reversed as social media just becomes a medium for the human rumor mill on steroids...

    Not to worry. Seems to be making a little more sense now. I know you worked/are working hard on it. Far be it for me to criticize

    Hi! New to BBQ gas griller. Just like to know if something is wrong with my griller. I noticed the flame on the burner pipe is not equally same throughout. Front and back of the burner have slightly high flame than the middle. Please see attached photo. Thanks
  29. Major Site Rework

    I can make that a selectable option. I like it because it quickly filters all the posts to that section without having to actually navigate down into a forum, thus you can peruse a lot of forums very quickly. Plus being able to do multiple selections is cool as well. I can make it a user selectable option, the only issue is once it is selected you have to switch themes and back to change it back... Dave

    All the click lists on the right, I don't know it just feels like unintuitive. Please understand not trying to "kick the shovel" out of anyone's hands it just seems to not lay out right and is very difficult to follow. I'll keep playing around with it maybe I'll get used to the weird (to me anyway) flow of it. It just seemed to make more sense prior to this latest reformat
