I heard the sound of sweet music this afternoon, when my wife said "Honey, let's eat steaks tonight." Like the dutiful husband I am, I went to the store, got some good looking meat + fixings. Now my grill won't get over 200 degrees. Drives me nuts. I've got a barbeque galore Captain Cook (pretty nice grill), replaced the regulator twice. I've done the whole "regulator stuck" drill - closing the tank, pulling the regulator off, opening up the grill burners - blah blah blah. Yes Google is my friend.

Advice?

True dat. When Marshall Gas regulators were made in AMERICA, they never failed. When they moved from San Marcos to Mexico, the still worked most times. When they moved to China - pfft. I think I'm going to root around in my BBQ wood pile and make a real fire. Hungry wife is angry.

The only proper way to grill steaks is on an open fire over genuine charcoal (not briquettes).

Otherwise, just flop them onto a cast iron griddle over high heat, sear each side for one minute over a dollop of salted butter, then flip them over at four and eight minutes for a perfectly cooked medium steak. Squeeze the juice of one lime on each piece of steak and you will never have had a better tasking steak.

Gas is good for water heaters: It Sux for Bar-B-Que.

A lot of heresy in this thread; talking about ripping out the propane and using charcoal. Heresy!
