Wasn't sure where to post this question so I went with "General Discussion"! Anyway, I have this SS gas grill that the guys in the shop made for me when I retired. It's a gas grill with a SS plate "fry pan" for blackening fish fillets and also has a pan for holding oil to fry fish. The gas burner was made by cutting slots in the pipe with a Portaband saw. The problem is the inlet end burns WAY hotter than the rest of the grill. If I turn it back to a reasonable flame at the inlet the rest barely has a flame. So, my question - is there anything I can do to even out the flame ( I tried throttling the air flow in the venturi to the burner tube to no avail) or would it be best to cut out the burner and make it into a charcoal grill? Pictures are attached - any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!!
