I then cut the side burner facial and mounted the fuel valve and then i was finished..
When i met my now wife Melissa , She had this portable camping gas grill in her shed . I remember i kept complimenting on how well built this grill was. Heavy duty steel was used for the base and a stainless steel top. We took in on a camping trip with us . I remember how disappointed i was by how long it took to cook a hamburger . All i could do was stare at it in disbelief.So that got me thinking ! My wife goes now what i can see your head spinning !!! Well This is what i came up with and I'm very pleased with the outcome...
This is the way the grill originally looked as i found it . Just your standard camping grill with your side bottle propane mount . I still cant believe how heavy duty the grill grate was compared to normal grills . The only bad part of this whole grill was that the burner was terrible . It took 30 minutes just to cook a hamburger!!!
Step 2: Recycled parts
Our everyday grill finally rotted out so i saved the side burner , both propane valves and line, the front valve plate and electronic starter .
Step 3: Disassembling the original grill
I unscrewed the bracket from the propane valve from the grill and then unscrewed the valve from the burner.
Step 4: New burner
I purchased a new duel burner from walmart for $25.00. I assembled the brackets for sitting on the bottom of the grill and mounted the fuel hoses are bendable . It didn't come with a electronic starter so i cut one out a old burner i had from a cheap mini camping grill i had laying around and mounted it to the new burner.
Step 5: Installing new burner
I drilled (2) 1 inch holes in the bottom of the grill to push the fuel tubes through the holes so the burner would sit flat on the bottom.
