adding a infrared searing burner to a 32" MM

9 posts in this topic

I also just purchased the 32" MM from Sam's club.

 

I have made a few adjustments by adding a grate just above the SS flame arrestors, then placed a mixture of one package of char-dimonds and once package of hickory flavored char-briskets.

 

This helps the grill hold its heat in a wind along with holding down more flame.

 

I would like retro fit a infrared searing burner in replace of once of the stock SS burners, does any one know of a way to do this?

 

I'll try to take some pictures soon.

 

Thanks.

Hi BlueBird,

 

Welcome to the BBQ Source Forums. To your question about adding a searing burner to your grill, click on this LINK which will take you to a lot of reading about installing one of these burners along with photos.

 

Things you have to think about, are you willing to give up 1/3 of your cooking surface for the sear burner? Does the cost make it worth the mod? What will it do to your grill warranty?

 

If you have any other topics that you have an interest in learning more about, try the search option you can find in the upper right of this screen. It is a super tool to find just about anything on this website about grilling. It is well worth the time to learn how to use.

 

Happy grilling and again welcome!

 

Eric D :rolleyes:

My Member Mark is about 4 years old...3 burners, rotissere, and side burner..

I just bought a 8-1/2"x15-1/8" (33K BTU infrared burner) form "Solaronics" talked to Hosein Razmi at 1-800-223-5335 it cost about $120 + $30 if you want the mesh protecter...I will add it in place of one of my grills or the side burner. I live in Houston..so I will wait for cooler weather..lol

Guess what...two of tubes on one of my SS grills have split on the bottom and there is an old rusty rod inside..Old Bill

Hi Old Bill,

 

Welcome to the BBQ Source Forums.

 

Wow! $50 for the sear burner is quite a different price from a few years back. That is really great news. I might have to rethink about installing one again. Thanks for posting the price you got.

 

Wouldn’t the burners on your grill still be under warranty? If you haven’t already, I would give the Member Mark customer service a call. Part of the reason of getting a stainless steel grill is to avoid corrosion issue like what you are having.

 

Please keep us posted on your sear burner install. Better yet, if you don’t mind, how about a few photos?

 

Again, welcome to the group!

Right guys the price is not cheap yet for a 33k BTU infrared burner...It cost $120 plus $30 for the mesh cover..I wrote a lot about it on this board...the thread M&M vrs. Jenn Aire...my plan to install it. My M&M is 2002 model so waranty is not an issue Eric. I corrected the Quote price but it did not take in Eric's reply..???

 

I am looking for some ss burners too...for mine are rusted badly..I settled for some from Sam's that are cast with an enamel coating for $24 each on line.. Search under grill burners...they have the model's listed for the M&M burner they carry..Have to buy them on line and have them shipped.

Mmmm, fresh fish on the smoker or grill!

 

Normally the best size for pictures on this site is 800 X 600, however, it will take a little larger. So if you can down size them before posting would be good. The forum doesn't have auto photo sizing. If you need instructions on uploading here, here is a link to some instructions, LINK.

 

It would be nice to see the steps you take to do your sear burner installation along with the finished product.
