Weber Grill - Cleaning Burners?

Question

MuskieJunkie

I have a Natural Gas 3 burner weber grill that is about 3 years old. The front burner lights with the igniter like it's supposed to but the 2 rear burners take about 30-60 seconds to light (the colder it is the longer it takes).

I am thinking the burners need to be cleaned, is that something that you are supposed to do, anyone ever had issues like this? Thanks for the help.

The burners shouldn't need to be cleaned but you do need to check them. I take the grates and flavor bars out of my Weber every spring and thoroughly clean them. While I'm there I brush off the burners, light them and make sure they're good to go for the season.

If your weber is stainless steel and you have an electric oven put the grills in the oven then do a self clean. It does an amazing job on cleaning them.

Eurolarva has an interesting solution to what may be your problem. When my burners don't light or light sporadically what I have done is take off the flavorizer bars, take the wire brush I use for cleaning the grate and use the bristles to poke into those little holes the gas comes out of all along the burners. Seems they get narrowed, probably by basting solutions, fat dripping etc.

I'll try the idea of piggy-backing on the self cleaning oven though.

When I rotisseried the turkey last week, I had the front and back burners lit with a flavorizer bar over each one. All other flavorizer bars were removed and the grates. The drip pan was sitting on the middle un-lit burner. It tipped over and some drippings went on the burner. When I used it Sunday, the middle burner lit but a few of the slits were plugged. I took the tip of a filet knife and cleaned them up. Now everything is back to normal. The burners must be pretty plugged to not light. Maybe something is obstructing the gas pipe that feeds these burners. Anyway, take all the grates and flavorizer bars off and light the grill. You will easily see if the burner slits are clogged.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
