Weber Grill Out Barbecue LED Light Fits Other Models Too.

weber grill out handle light for bbq

The handle bracket is on the LED bbq light but the package also has an other bracket that also attaches instead of the one currently attached to allow the weber grill light to fit other barbecues.

The Weber grill out handle light is designed to clamp around the hood handle and point down illuminating the grilling surface.  The lights are LED which are bright and clear.  The light is powered by 4 AAA batteries that install into the housing and the weather-resistant design is very low-tech.  The switch showing on the side of the plastichousing  in this image can be twisted and pulled out to reveal the battery compartment.  There are three layers of o-rings to seal the battery compartment from moisture.  The light is designed to be left on the grill handle and not to be removed when the barbecue is not in use.

 

In fact the light is designed to be left in the “on” position even when the grill is not in use.  There is a switch in the grill that swings with gravity so the light automatically comes on when the handle is up and the light automatically turns off when the lid is closed down.

However, what is decidedly forward thinking about the Weber grill out handle light for barbecues is that the Weber light is made to fit grills that are not  Weber models.  The light comes with an extra bracket.  The completed and installed product is two pieces with the clamp separating in order to attach or remove the handle light.  In the package the front of the assembly is together but there are two different clmps that attach the the handle.  Obviously one of these is molded to fit the Weber handle on Weber model barbecues.  The other extra clamp is a more round opening that can be used to illuminate the grilling surface of other barbecue models also.

custom outdoor kitchen

Custom bar we built under a tiki hut has a stainless steel ice bin and speed bar, non-UL rated refrigerator and cubby holes with an access door for storage. We match the texture to the stucco on the house and the granite was chosen to compliment the colors while using low-maintenance materials.

Just goes to show that not all outdoor kitchens have to have a built in bbq grill!

Safety First With Gas Logs

No matter how pleasing to the eye something may be, safety should always be the first concern. Gas logs are beautiful, and allow for a very convenient fire in your home whether you use a ventless fireplace or an ordinary, masonry vented fireplace. As anything fire-related, there are many precautions you should be aware of, and take measure of when using vented and unvented gas logs. The manual you receive when you purchase gas logs should be kept and referenced as often as you need questions to be answered. It contains information of utmost benefit to you, and it needs to be read before you set up to begin using your gas logs. Being equipped with this information is highly important for a safe, and pleasant experience.

Children should be monitored exceptionally close if they are going to be near the fireplace while it is in use. They should be educated as early as possible on the dangers that lie in getting too close, or playing carelessly nearby. Clothing and toys can ignite, and result in death and injury; both incredible hampers to enjoying the fire.

Gas logs are definitely safe. They have actually be used for decades, and they are well known for not being dangerous. When used properly, and consciously, you will not need to be concerned about fires or unsafe breathing conditions. However, they do involve the use of natural gas, and as well they produce extraordinarily hot fires, so if not done properly, you could have a world of trouble on your hands. Gas logs are made with oxygen depletion sensors, and monitors for safe air quality, and detectors for the presence of gas in the air. They should be installed following the appropriate regional codes that apply. In some cases there are none, and the code ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA 54 should be followed.  Should you smell gas, it is advised that you contact your gas supplier. They will have the appropriate steps you need to adhere to for a safe environment. If you cannot reach them, call the fire department. In the meantime, do not turn on any electrical items, activate any switches, or use any phones indoors. Exit immediately, and use a neighbor’s, or someone else’s phone to contact emergency personnel.

Gas logs made by the superior Rasmussen company, and other such products are designed for being used exclusively in vented fireplaces, and ventless fireplaces. Certain types of vent-free fireplaces are not compatible with gas logs, so if you own one of these, read the manual carefully to see whether or not it can tolerate them. Some types of unvented fireplace will have warnings on them that state they have not been tested for compatibility with using gas logs. This is a chance not worth testing because there is no backup information as to what kind of consequences you may face. Of course, there could be no negative situation, however it is not a chance worth taking.

Storing flammable liquids or items near the fireplace is also a really bad idea. This includes items with flammable vapors, as they are also capable of igniting. Loose items of clothing, blankets, curtains, drapes, furniture, or rugs are recommended to be kept within a measurable distance from any fireplace, vent free or vented, as they can easily ignite and start a fire.

If your fireplace is a vented type, for the safest conditions it is necessary to have it cleaned professionally at least once a year. Soot, residual matter, creosote, debris, and chipped paint are all very common in fireplaces, especially after continuous use during the cold months. Before autumn it is best to have them cleaned, and prepped well for the impending season.

Fireplaces are priceless ways to enjoy the warmth of fire, and by following a few safety precautions, your experiences can be incredibly rewarding. Enjoy!

gas log ventless fireplace

This unvented gas fireplace burner and logs has a manual valve, manual ignition, a standing safety pilot kit and an on–off switch that conveniently operated the fireplace without using the valve. There are 2 burners plus the cross-over burner shown in the first image. The cross-over fireplace burner allows the flame to travel between burners so both burners have reliable ignition. We are planning a raffle based on people who visit and comment on our online facebook page. After a month we will take anyone who commented and liked our page and send them the brand new vent-free gas log fireplace kit.

Custom wood burning fireplace designs.

Putting up a fireplace, especially in places with cold weather, is a must. But this is not an easy task to do. Putting up a fireplace is not simply putting up another decoration to a house. By doing so, things like building code, fire codes, preference, style and materials need to be considered accordingly. The design of the fireplace, including the height, position and technical measurements, shall match the lifestyle of the homeowner as well. 

Furthermore, the job does not end after the construction of the fireplace. The work still continues even after its installation. The jobs after construction include annual and regular inspections and other maintenance or preventive or precautionary check-ups.

In order to make the life of the homeowners much easier, there are five (5) points that are worth considering, which are the (1) fireplace installation considerations, (2) type of fireplace, (3) positioning, (4) choosing whether chimney or chase, and (5) choosing whether single or double-walled flue.

On the first topic, installing fireplace require compliance to specific safety guidelines like fire and building codes of a specific city. It is basic to know that one cannot build a fireplace in a combustible area. There are also increments or space allowances surrounding the fireplace area. Depending on the specific codes of the city, the material of the floor surrounding the fireplace shall not be made from easily combustible materials. The foundation, where the fireplace will be built, shall be suitable as well.


Secondly, the type of the fireplace must also be determined accordingly.  Gas fireplaces are growing in popularity and ventless gas fireplace designs have evolved far beyond the boundaries of the fake fire.  Wood burning fireplaces look, smell and sound like a real fireplace and have the ability to burn anything for anytime with no limit to design or heat produced.  There are two major types of a fireplace: namely, masonry and factory-built. The masonry type of a fireplace is usually made up of blocks, fire bricks or mortar. The factory-built, on the other hand, is usually built with lightweight firebox made up of metal.

 

The third topic is primarily about the physical appearance of the fireplace. Its style, design and position must not be substandard. There is a specific location that will match the homeowner’s lifestyle and preference. Furthermore, the fireplace must be placed in accordance with the positioning of the house’s windows, doors and curves or corners. Some cities even provide a standard policy, which states that the fireplace must be built at least 36 inches away from combustible surface like walls or floor.

 
The fourth topic talks about choosing whether to build a chimney or a chase. Chimneys and chases are, of course, different. Choosing which one to build reflects the preference, style and character of the designer and even the homeowner.

To delineate chase from a chimney, the former is usually made up of decorative and pretty covers that enclose the flue inside chimneys. The primarily purpose of using chase is to decorate or stimulate a stylish look of the bricks. Compared to ordinary chimney, the advantage of using chase is the cost. It is much cheaper to use chase because it is usually made up of either metal or wood. This, however, make the chase last not too long, unlike the life-span of a chimney, which is made of concrete bricks. On the other hand, the advantage of the chimney is its durability.


The fifth, which is the last point to consider, is choosing whether to put up a single or a double walled kind of flue. The advantage of the single-walled kind of flue is limited to its safety features when used as insulation in a masonry chimney. Double and triple walled chimney flue allow heat to rise while the flames consuming oxygen at the bottom of the chimney threaten to create a vacuum causing cool air from the top of the chimney termination cap to be pulled down through the outer flue section.  The hot air is pulled up through the inner section and cool air is pulled down through the outer section.  Double and triple walled chimney pipes are law in most states today because they are so much safer within homes built with wood and other combustible materials.

At the end of the design and the construction the enjoyment of sitting back in a cold room with a hot fire is worth every penny spent, every drop of sweat and the hours of creating the custom fireplace.  With a few accessories the wood burning fireplace can become an oven, bed warmer, home deodorizer and just a eye-magnet in the room where everyone wants to congregate.
