I went to use my Masterbuilt XL for the first time this year and tried it out last night before todays smoke. I started it up and the flame seemed very small so I let it go for a while and all of a sudden there was a fire under the smoker. It looks like it is coming from where the burner pipe meets the gas pipe. The pipe has holes ( I assume for safety) and it seems like gas is leaking from there and catching fire. I have to turn the gas all the way up to seem to get any flame on the burner when I do this the fire catches after 10 minutes or so.
I have tried to push the pipe in farther but doesn't seem to move at all. It worked before I put it away for the winter. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Might have to do the Boston Butt in the oven today....this is a sad sad day
