Fsh! Fsh! (natural gas smell) on GE XL44

A single burner on our GE XL44 natural gas range has been acting up. The flame was orange and would flare up, and then I dusted the burner. Now it's blue. It smells like gas, and still flares up.

My guess is that there's something weird with the amount of air reaching the gas.
None of the other burners or the oven have been behaving like this. Can I replace the one burner that's flaring up inexpensively?
Also, I recently brewed a batch of beer by boiling about 4 gallons of liquid for 60 minutes or so, plus time to heat up, at full heat. The problem started for the first time about halfway through, but I saw no boil-overs or anything. Could that be related?
