ok don't ask me why but my gas burner is looking kind of black these days. If this was only flame damage I would'nt even bother to clean it.

However I had a few boilovers in the last 3 or 4 beers. As you might imagine it's pretty gunked up.

Still fires up and works good I would just like to clean it. I belive it's made of aluminum and I know how to dismantle it so............................any ideas?

Every now and again I take my burners apart and clean them out with a small, round wire 'brush' you can get to use in a drill. Does a good job.

Wait a minute, are you talking about a stovetop burner, or a turkey type cooker?

If its a outside propane style burner, there should be a scrwew in the center that will let you take it apart...

Also if its black from the flame, open up the vent more and let some more O2 in there...

If its black from cooking boilovers in it.. then stop boiling over..;>

Everybody a comedian.........It's an outdoor burner. I meant what kind of cleaners, I was thinking Oven cleaner?

Funny walt, I've got to start paying attention to the boil.....................I boil 8 gal Usually. I used to use a 9 gal pot, very tricky. So I said why not I'll get a 12 gal pot and I boiled that one over too..........haa
