    Things I like and have interest in are: Grilling with my Jen-air 720-0061-LP grill. Smoking all types of meat on my Great Outdoors LP smoker unit for family and friends. I like working on and flying aircraft, fixed wing and rotor wing. The best dog for me is a Doberman.<br /><br />I have fun here, at the BBQ Source Forums with all the great grilling, smoking and cooking, plus all the great people.

    Sear Burner Drop-in Ready to Go!

    Takeahike, All we can do here in Michigan right now is dream about grilling! Yesterday morning the temp was -8°F, and this morning it warmed all the way up to -6°F.. The past two days the schools have been closed around here. When I have a free moment I plan on checking it out at the store as well. I have not seen it in person. I would like to see if I can replace my side burner with it. Eric D

    Jenn-Air Mods and Pictures

    Thanks for the link. I might end up purchasing from Online Metals if I can't find any other source close by. I need to check with a friend of mine that works in a steel slitting company. They cut the big rolls of steel into thinner rolls for production type companies. He offered to supply some left over piece a few years back, I'll have to see if he still has some. Thanks again, Eric D

    Takeahike, Have you found a good place to purchase the sheet stainless to use for building a shelf? I've check a few places around by me, but have not found a source. What is the going price on sheet stainless? Eric D

    Jenn-Air Mods and Pictures

    Hey Don! Sign me up for that type of deal! Great idea and I really believe that the grill manufactures read the stuff from this sit. I look at my early 2004 model and the ones currently in Lowes and I see a lot of changes that started as mods right here on this website. For example the inferred searing unit, the complaint of not enough heat and the addtion of dividers. The new units have double wall hoods which I'm sure they did to improve heat retention. Also they increased the size of the inferred unit for the rotisserie from the one that came with my unit. My grills IR unit never had enough heat for doing much of anything other then a little help with the main burnners that have to be on for rotisserie cooking. Almost makes me want to sell my unit and buy a newer model. I'm glad to see they keep improving on a great grill. Eric D
