Default Bayou classic

Well Im finally getting around to firing up this Bayou Classic. Well it wasn't like I was expecting. Instead of a jet looking flames...most of the flames are finding their way up the outside of the kettle, not putting much heat to the bottom at all.

It's taking forever to boil. No biggie....this is just a dry run for tomorrow. But just curious, cause this burner isnt anything like Ive heard. So..... what have I done wrong?

Default 10" Banjo Burner

If this is the burner your speaking of, This burner is almost silent and it DELIVERS when you go to boil it delivers the maximum btu's to the bottom of the keggle right where it's needed you'll find it's quiet and fairly fast.

Dude: you have to adjust the airflow and the gasflow until you get the most efficient flame. It should be a short blue flame with very little yellow or orange in it. It will be relatively quiet and will get you up to a boil rather quickly.

yea I messed with air/gas mixture, knob at tank, check for leaks.....this is not working at all. Not single blue flame.

Im way off on troubleshooting. Nothing I do changes the flame.

There was nothing I add in the box. It was already assembled

Something is not flowing right either gas or air. It might be worth taking it all apart to make sure it's not plugged up somewhere along the line. Have you changed out the gas bottle to make sure it's not bad?

If the flames are yellow then there is not enough air getting through to mix with the gas. You'll also end up with soot and of more concern if you are not well ventilated you'll get excessive CO from it.

I actually had to drill an extra 1/2" hole in the round air regulator plate. It worked much better after I did. Also, this burner requires a 30psi hi pressure gas regulator.
