Severe Sooting problem with my "All American Hot Dog Cart" Tue, 08/6/13 12:21 PM (permalink)
Hi all,
     I have an "New York City Street Cart" from  All American Hot Dog Carts in Miami. I have had it for about a year now and have to put up with a very severe sooting problem. Just the two 1/3 pans over the two burners. The middle one gets very little soot. But this stuff is so bad I have to scrape it off the bottoms of the pans before I do anything or this S**t gets everywhere.
I have removed and cleaned the entire burner assembly including both gas valves supplying  the burners. I have removed the Trip basin sink and panel & inspected the 1/8" copper propane line for kinks. I have also replaced the regulator, twice. I know normally to avoid soot you need to have a proper gas/air mixture. My flame is mostly yellow. I have adjusted the air valves on the burners both ways with little difference. At the moment they are wide open. Man I am at a loss, can any one relate?
 It takes about 30-45 minutes to heat a gallon of water for my weenies. That seems a little long. What do you guys think?
 I have a griddle too, but that seems to work fine. Of course I have nothing to compare it to.
Anybody else every have similar problems? Could it be cheap burners or valves on the cart? Do I need new parts maybe?
Thanks Guys
