Today I'm cleaning out the cobwebs from my Landmann 2-drawer 3405GLA propane smoker and getting ready for first smoke of Spring (brisket). I'm letting it come up to temp to just clean out the spiders and such and noticing the flame coming out of my cast iron burner is only blue in the bottom half and yellow at the top half. Is this normal? I forget.
I already disassembled the whole darn flame box, removed the burner and cleaned out the tube. It just mostly had some rust but I cleaned it out good and with a round brush and blew out any debris with an air compressor. Looks good and went back together fine so am not worried about a spider or bug debris clogging up anything.
Is this acceptable?
On a related note, in case you can help, my ignitor stopped working after reassembly. I dropped the bottom burn pan so it wasn't connected electrically to the unit and it works. It just doesn't work when grounded again. The little crome plate where you put the holddown screw through is going to touch metal, and thus be grounded. I don't understand why it isn't working.
Thanks for any advice
