PATIO HEATER REPAIR
Patio Heater Repair Introduction Keeping a patio heater lit is quite a challenge at times. We get calls all the time and you’d be surprised how often the solution is simple enough for home/business owners to handle. In this guide, we’ll attempt to save you a service call, but of course, we’re here to serve so in either capacity we’re glad to help! Patio Heater Issues Pilot Light Issues We’re starting with the pilot light and thermocouple positioning. This is at the top of the list for a reason. Often pilot lights can move too far away from the thermocouple, therefore disabling the spark that ignites the patio heater. This is because the system’s thermocouple detects no pilot light and automatically shuts the heater down; a most useful safety mechanism as the gas would otherwise continue to release but not burn … need we say more?

GS4 Grilling System by Weber Grills
Performing as well as grills that cost hundreds of dollars more the Weber Spirit II E-310 LP Gas Grill costs, the proprietary GS4 Grilling System is what makes it stand out the most. We are calling the $500 Weber Spirit II E-310 LP Gas Grill a value purchase; not that $500 is cheap, but one could spend a lot more.

What makes this ostensibly simple grill so special? It’s not the 529 square inches of cooking space, ample though that is for a relatively small grill. Nor is it the multiple tool hooks on which you can hang tongs, a spatula, a fork, and more, convenient though they are. And

CONVECTION vs INFRARED
SO WHAT ABOUT CONVECTION?? All gas grills work with convection. Of course some of them are designed to be better at it than others.

So the idea is to get the air constantly moving around the food so that you get a better and more evenly cooked meal.  Here is a great illustration of convection. So in this way all grills are convection because all grills will form convection currents; though some grill producers add certain technology to enhance the effect.  Take for instance the Titanfire BBQ Convection Bake Plate You can see how the bake plate makes the heat emanate from the outside of the plate thus creating a convection current. Here’s another device used to enhance convection: TurboQue Smoker – Convection Grilling This device works in obvious ways. So at the end of the day
