Default Ideas for cleaning burner tube on Weber Q

I just replaced the burner tube on my Weber Q200 over the winter and its already getting mucked up and not burning all the way around. . Any ideas on what to use and how to use it on that thing? I was thinking i could try and soak it in something to loosen the gunk up but im not sure what to use

I`ve had a Weber Q for 6 years now and all I use is a wire brush. I break down the whole burner assembly and clean it with the wire brush. It`s worked for me all this time.

I just did my babyQ. I took scotchbrite to the whole outer tube first. You may have to use a putty knife scraper first and then Easy Off. Then I put a #60 drill bit into a pin vise and reamed out every little friggin hole. The area where the holes were plugged and no fire, is where the gunk was thickest. Hard on the back job.

I use a wire brush and a push pin a couple of times a year. Works great

Don't know exactly where it is clogged but if its inside the tubes - compressed air may be the only real practical way - I ahve had good success when spiders got into gas orifices one summer

I had given up on the weber Q a while back with plans to get rid of it that weekend. Was pressure cleaning the deck said "hmmmmmm wonder what this will do to the grill?"

Dang thing worked like new after that.....even the starter worked. (I believe I did take some parts apart to dry it)
