BBQ, Smoking, & Grilling

orange flame on weber grill

mikefly | Nov 30, 201405:55 PM     3

Hi,

I just cleaned up my grill (old genesis silver b) - including vertical swipes at the burners to ensure the holes were clear. Note that the crosspiece does not seem to be burning well.

There are blue flames at the bottom, but as you can see in this photo, the flames have substantial orange tips.

Any suggestions for me? Should I just replace the burners entirely?

Using the BBQ is not problematic, but it definitely does not have even heat, and is prone to flare-ups.

Any advice appreciated,

MT
