Big Block Gas Leak

Discussion in 'Propane Smokers' started by smokeshow, Apr 20, 2012.

  1. I have had my Big Block for about 2 years now.

    I went to do a smoke and I noticed a flame near the door after I let it heat up for a bit.  Gas seems to be leaking from the wire mesh in the gas line and it eventually ignites.  How do I fix this problem?

    SS, morning.... sounds like something crawled into the burner and is plugging it....  take it out and clean it....  probably a spider or something like that...

  3. Yep.. that was the problem.  I found a video on youtube where they used a wire brush to clean.  i could not find that at Lowes, so I just used my garden hose with a fine stream spray setting  and flushed it with water.  The water sprayed out evenly through the burner holes, except a few that were blocked.  I used my finger to clean the debris until water came out evenly through all holes.

    I hooked it back up and the burner was all blue flame on high...  just like the day I bought it 2 years ago!

    Thx for your help.
