Found a Smoker Grill on the roadside.
The kind that is shaped like a barrel cut in half.

As I was moving it from the side of my garage to the drive to begin repairs, one of the legs snapped off.
Darn.
So, now the barrel part sets next to my fire pit as storage for twigs and kindling. Placing logs around it gives it an "up-northsy" feel.

found another regular LP grill. You know the kind, the ones that people just toss out because they were too lazy to keep the grates clean and there is all sort of charred on burger?
Hooker up the LP and it lit fine. Only problem was flames started shooting out from underneath. Almost began to melt the LP hoses.
I am thinking this is just because the screened connector tube from the burner to the rubber LP hose is gunked up with grease.

spider webs.

Clean out the nozzels where the gas enters the burner.
Clean out the tubes of the burner as well.
Compressed air works or you can buy a long thin flexible brush that snakes it out.

Next time, maybe you should use some soapy water to check for gas leaks before lighting a fire.

This is the same poster who stores 65 gallons of gas on his property. I hope the Fire Department is close.

22gals of those are in the truck tank...
the rest are in 8 5gal federally approved plastic containers.
i see no reason for concern.
don't most people keep 2-5gals of gasoline sitting in the garage for the mower? Anyhoo...
----


yeah-- i thought maybe spider webs---but i think its the grease build up on the screen parts that won't allow enough oxygen to get through.

The burner is clean of webs, and the flames didn't start to go underneath until after about a minute of "regular" burning.
So I think the grease build up may have expanded on the "screens" and blocked the air/fuel mixture.
The only place for the flame+LP combo to find oxygen was underneath.
I'll clean it out and let you guys know how it works and how much I get for it for sale on the curb.

See post on LBYM board. I have doubts your plastic gasoline containers are UL or FM approved.

Ummm .... no. You need to read more carefully. The "you" in your sentence refers to slakk. You were responding to one of his posts.

My response to your post is to point out slakk is also the poster who stores 65 gallons of gasoline on his property. Here is the post where he says he does this.
http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=27689326

Now if you are trying to stretch logic and think I was implying you, that just does not make sense. You were saying you hoped slakk was close to the Fire Department. Why would I switch the question of Fire Dept distance to you? I was agreeing with you that I hope slakk lived close to the fire dept.

OK, I accept your explanation. I misconstrued your response.

well I do live close to a fire dept.
And my containers are UL approved
(they have to be when running a business and hauling around fuel-- ala lawn cutting service)

Uh, sometimes people throw things out for a reason.

I agree but also some people are unwilling to buy a part and make a simple repair.

Sometimes not even a part.

My three working dehumidifiers all just needed to be disassembled and vacuumed to removed the thick thick layers of lint and crud on the heat exchangers. I have two 40-pint units and a 25-pint unit for free...much better than the 15-pint unit I got when I bought my house. Two of the freebies were rescued from the trash while I was driving to work (different years). I guess the discarding parties set them beside the trash in case someone could recover and repair them. One of the three was a "For Free" post on the intranet at work.

I also recovered a CardioGlide whose timer/calorie-counter/rep-counter doesn't work. What do I care? I just go on it for two minutes to warm up before lifting.
