what 'should' be btu output of member's mark ir burner?
I discovered with some very minor tweeking that it is
pretty easy to convert the IR Burner on the IR Burner
so instead of OFF/ON, it can be OFF/HIGH/LOW ... similar
to the controls on the main burners. And I can easily
tweek the BTU output by drilling appropriate size holes.
I'll get around to posting exactly how this is done,
complete with pictures, on my MM web site ... but I'm
grappling with what I should set the BTU levels at.
I.e. stock is 10,000 BTU with ON ... so I see three choices:
LOW=6,000 BTU, HIGH=10,000 BTU
LOW=6,000 BTU, HIGH=15,000 BTU (or higher?)
LOW=10,000 BTU, HIGH=15,000 BTU (or higher?)
One has to be a bit careful with going to LOW ... since it
can flameout in the wind ... and last thing I want is to
have the grill explode on me!
And I'm not too sure (from a safety point of view) how HIGH
I want to go.
HOWEVER, my questions for the IR griller's out there is
do you find that you wish you had MORE or LESS heat
available from the IR burner ... or is factory stock
