You guys are funny. We all know that if you want it spoon fed you're gonna pay, but if you put on your dirty clothes and look like a plumber you go to the supply houses where things are cheap....except you're supposed to know what you're doing. So I learn and fake the best I can......
Meanwhile, speaking of learning.......
I hooked the burner up to my propane bottle using a variable high pressure regulator like the posters above use and suggest getting. Yes I got a nice inferno going, hotter than hell in fact, but the flames were not seated nicely in the nozzles and at lower settings some nozzles were not firing, and there were quite a few yellow flames........not good.
More research reveals:
There are high pressure burners, like most of the turkey fryers out there, and there are low pressure burners, like the ones I have. But, these are HIGH VOLUME, and need to be regulated accordingly. Regulators have a pressure and a BTU rating. The .4psi regulator Morebeer sells with these burners is rated for 400.000 btu.....
You have to match the regulator with the device.
Putting the high pressure variable regulator with these burners is, IMHO AFAIK now wrong, because at the pressure where the flames seat properly in the nozzles and burn nice and blue, there is not enough volume
to keep all the nozzles going and create the heat. (There is a reason there's 1/2 pipe going in to these things.)
Think of it this way, the turkey friers are 110V 10A, these burners are 12V 90A, except the high pressure regulators won't let 90A out......So, I will have to go get a low pressure regulator that's rated for the BTU's I need.
I will report back when this is done.
I think the lack of understanding on this is where some of the discontent stems from, especially if you plop down a C-note for a burner that doesn't perform like one would expect for that money.
