Newer Magma grills - temperature control?

Hey Everyone -

Looking to upgrade from my old Magma grill due to a variety of reasons. Been reading the threads and some articles and am narrowing in on staying with a true Marine grill.

At this point the rectangle Magma infrared seem to be the front runners.

My question is for anyone who has bought one of these in the last couple of years - is there any temperature control? Like is there an actual low-medium-high?

My existing magma kettle burns at inferno hot and that is IT.

Thanks for the feedback!

Newer Magma grills - temperature control?

I have three Magma grills, to include the IR Magma, two I left in the barn, the IR Magma I gave to my Son to use on his porch.
None of them are worth crap, they all burn too hot, the IR made no difference that I could tell.

Based on reports here, I bought and installed a Weber a couple of years ago, and itís not a Marine grill, itís much, much better, it actually stays lit, itís electronic lighter still works, and it has honest to God low temp settings to go along with the incinerate setting. Itís simply just a much , much better grill.
Itís not a pretty as itís not shiny, but it works where the Magma doesnít.

All this is my opinion of course, grills are I guess a lot like anchors, people have different experiences with them.

Re: Newer Magma grills - temperature control?

I purchased an IR Magma 2 years ago. I have the typical blue control valve that regulates temp. I'm just about to install my third burner. I've also replace 2 heat screens at a ridiculous price of $37 bucks each.

I try and keep a low heat but most of the parts are warping from too much heat. I'm disappointed.
