Short Story: Anyone use a banjo burner to grill on? If so, any tips on keeping the food from dripping on to it besides tinfoil cover with each hole poked through?
As I was growing up in Lansing MI, my house was 100% DIY. My dad and I had installed a natural gas line to the outside and ran our grill off of that. Several years later, I live down in Nashville, TN. We got a propane grill at out apartment, but then found out its a huge fine and have had to move it to a storage unit. We have a park style box grill for charcoal, and don't get me wrong, I enjoy the taste and process of charcoal grilling. HOWEVER, after having the instant on, adjustable heat allows me to grill more than once ever month. We're not allowed to store gas grills on our patios because that's just too tempting for certain derelicts (including me) to roast a steak real quick and not get caught. I've looked at tailgate grills, but after research and finding that the weber 200Q is the one for me, at a whopping 200 bucks, that will have to wait. I'm thinking I could just toss a standalone burner from a banjo in the bottom of the park grill and voila! a high powered gas grill. The burner is a little easier to store inside than a full out rig.
Anyone got insight on this? PSI recommendations? BTUs?
