    Anyone know what this is?

    Hello all,

    Anyone know what this is (the silver object sticking out)? It's under the manifold of my Genesis 1000.





    Is it a plug for the hole for a side burner? If so then does anyone know if a Silver C side burner hose would fit into that hole (Genny 1000 manifold)? Thanks

    It is a plug indeed. Yes, any side burner will fit, but sometimes you have to go get adapter parts. If you intend to add a side burner, use the plug to find the correct fitting for the side burner, if necessary.

    Yah, that is an extra port for an additional side burner. It is probably a 1/8" NPT connection. I have two of those on my Genesis 1000. Why, I don't know?

    Grills and guns are a lot alike. While one would usually suffice and you can only use one a time, each grill/gun is better in certain situations.

    Yep, take the manifold out and chuck it into a vice to hold it steady. DON"T CRUSH IT JUST HOLD IT btw. IT looks pretty mangled already so I think you may have already tried. No? Anyway chuck it in a vice so it's held solid and use a GOOD Vice Grip (not the cheap Chineseum junk a GOOD USA made one) and it'll come out. I have done it many times.

    That is probably a 1/8" NPT and you can buy an adapter to convert it to a 3/8" flare which is what most propane lines use. Then you can connect it to whatever you want. But, I wouldn't pull it out unless you have a use for it, like adding an extra side burner or something like that.

    Thanks LM. Yah, I tried to take it out yesterday and that's why it looks mangled.

    Yup, pulling it out because I am adding a side burner.
