  2. Just wanted to keep ya'll in the know. I saw this on Tailgatermonthly.com and I had gotten one of these for Christmas. I call the 800 number and it was pretty easy. I got a thing int he mail from them.... you have to take out the heating element and mail it back to them and then once they get it from you they send you a new one which has vents near regulator.

    Just wanted my fellow grillers and BBQers to be in the know.
