Burner Question.

    My burner probably just sucks. It's a cheapo turkey friar one, but it's what I got so I'm just going to go with it. Anyhoodle, every time I use it, and I do mean ever time, it works more like a soot factory than a burner. I've tried playing with the air mixing valve a bunch of times and it literally makes zero difference.

    Has anyone else dealt with a dirty burner successfully? If so, what did you do to get a cleaner burn?

    I have a craptastic turkey fryer like you say. It did the same thing once and after much frustration I found a very thick spider web in it. Like halfway between the air baffle and the burner. I think I blew compressed air through and out came a nasty little web/ball.

    Oops. I accepted rather than quoted. Anyway, mine had a bunch of rust flakes in the bottom of it and it did that same thing

  • I've had to pull the cup style burners apart to clear rust from the inside. They are particular on airflow.

  • I left one outside until it would work anymore. Took it apart and cleaned the rust and it was back like new.

    I've got one I need to do that too. They really fill with water in a bad way. It's a bad design for leaving uncovered outside, but everyone seems to do it.

    I'm guilty of it.
