I'm so aggravated right now, I could just spit.
I started another 30 lb of Summer Sausage (Cervelat) two days ago (giving a bunch as holiday gifts). Got it all reground and stuffed this morning, went out to fire up the smoker aaaaannnd....nothing. I just used it three weeks ago for my son's birthday, with no issue.
I have a 36" Weston Model #41-0301-W
Here's what it was doing:
I attach a tank, turn the dial on tank to ON. No tell-tale hiss.
Turn dial to HIGH, hit with flame, no lighting of burner. No smell of gas.
Here's what I have done:
Attached 3 different tanks (one is FULL, two are half-full from the grill)
Checked and tightened everything on the venturi/burner line.
I then thought 'Well, it's been damn cold out, lets try adding some heat." I poured an entire kettle of hot water over the HVR neck (figured ice? dirt?) reattached and now, on HIGH, I have a small amount of blue flame. I gotta get this sausage smoked, there's 30lb down there! Do I need to clean it? How the heck do you do that?
