Most people choose to use the drop in sear burner in the far left position. To install, remove the grate and briquette tray. The great part of Summerset Grills is the versatility burner interchangeability.
The burner is secured in the back below with a cotter pin, which will need to be removed with a pair of pliers or needle-nose pliers in order to remove the burner.
Once the cotter pin is removed, remove the burner by the back end and rotate the burner out. Place the sear burner in the same manner as the main burner was removed. Carefully and safely position burner in the front orifice hole in the center of the burner area and that it is seated in its guide pin or pins. Replace the grate only as the briquette tray is not needed for this setup. Light as normal.
The directions are for a different style grill. I have the TRL and the directions cited here aren’t applicable.
I also have a TRL and just purchased the sear burner. I have taken out the grates, briquettes, and burner. There is a "T" that is screwed into the grill bottom, which appears to keep the rear of the burners from lifting. This must be removed before the new sear burner can be put in place but there is no way that these screws are coming loose. I called Summerset's recommended "grill handyman" and I was told that I needed a special tool to GRIND the screws off because they WILL NOT come loose any other way. I am stuck mid-installation, and would sure appreciate some help.
