We have both a Force 10 log style BBQ and a single
burner Sea Chef
aboard. They are valued tools and get a lot of use here. They were working very well for us until the Sea Chef
started acting up, a yellow flame and lots of soot on the bottom of the cooking
utensil. I traced the problem down to a burner head
that was clogged with rust. I contacted Force 10 and was told that they no longer made that burner head
and that to buy the "upgrade" parts
to the new style ... well? I was told that it would be cheaper to buy a complete new unit ....??? I guess some folks live in that sorta world ... not me.
I recently purchased a new Coleman single
burner camp stove
... promptly ground the heads off the rivets, kept the valve & it's mounting tabs, the burner head ... and threw the rest away. It only took a few minutes to bend the tabs to fit and mount the unit on the Sea Chef. The new hybrid actually works better than new! The Coleman "Perfect Flow" valve allows for better flame control. By the way the complete
was $25 .. and should it's stainless steel
clad burner head rust out .... it's replacement is readily available for $5 !!! Hope this helps someone with the same problem.
