if you've seen this thread:
You know me. I just ordered the new banjo burner and am concerned 4" is too far from my keggle to produce a good boil with efficient fuel use. Your specs sound great and encouraging. When I get my burner (shipped last week) I'll try what you suggest as it sounds right. Wind screen/guard, dialing in the gas flow, and you saying it is whisper quiet is especially encouraging - thanks. I'll post when I get mine as I think the new version (is it the kab6 or something, it ends in a 6) looks good for us.
