My grill does not generate as much heat as I'd like. I cleaned out
the manifolds and jets today, which helped a bit, but it occurs to me
that I could completely remove the jets and regulate the gas flow with
Is there any other purpose to the jets other than to stop down the max
rate of gas delivery to the burners?

The Jet is a safety device to stop over dumping of fuel into the burners if something
goes wrong. With out a jet of some size to
regulate the flame. Your going to get burnt lighting it in the future. If you want
more heat. Drill out the jet by say 5 or 10 /
thousandths and see if you get enough. Just keep drilling it out till you get what
heat you want. Now just taking it out is very
dangerous and you will find out if you do.
You must have a stopping point of Max. or you get in trouble.

The orifices serve the purpose of keeping the delivery pressure and
speed up where it needs to be. As the gas exits the orifice the jet
of gas pulls combustion air into the manifold with it. Otherwise your
steaks will have a unpleasant coating of soot. If this is a natural
gas grill I would look at the delivery pressure and capacity of the
gas line that feeds it.
Cheap grill? Honestly they all have a rated output and you really can't
modify one to increase the output as frytech explained.
I had a cheap grill and I also felt the output was a bit low. Then I
bought a good grill and it worked great, until someone stole it.
Great idea. Hard to believe how stupid those engineers are that designed
the grill. They never should have put them jets in thier in the first
place. You'd think they would want to savbe cost instead of putting a
restriction in the line.
Yes, they keep your ass in one piece. It may have a crack in it, but at
least it is not on top of the garage roof in little pieces.
