I ordered 2 of the 4 inch as well earlier in the week. I expect them to arrive soon. You must be closer to them than I am.

Thanks in advance...
I haven't had to look for any propane accessories yet. I'm using the burner from my smoker/fryer for boiling and electric for everything else. Sorry

If anybody is looking for two brand new 14 gallon kettles for their Brutus, I have them listed in classified. Went for the Blichman's.

I will be moving the burners down away from the kegs to try and get a better burn. Check out this thread (Adjusting a burner height) I hope this helps
Hey wshymas-- (or anyone that knows)

By the looks of your pictures you are utilizing the 'gas beam' idea from Lonnie and the hurricane burners. You mentioned you purchased a difference regulator and run less than 30PSI.

Any idea what PSI you are runnning? The original regulator for those hurricane burners is described as a "High Pressure - Low Output". Im wondering if that gas beam is rated to handle the PSI of that regulator. And 2nd, all the gas valves im finding are rated to 5 PSI. These are fine for all the low pressure regulators and burners at .4 PSI im seeing, but are there high pressure LP Gas valves and do i need those ?

Also, wont the PSI of that hurricane regulator demand specific ASCO valves depending on much pressure they are rated for? Im shopping for the 8120G75s. What did you use in your setup ?

My friends, I can only address the pressure beam issue. For some reason this one keeps coming up. This is a chunk of 1/8" wall stainless steel! It is stronger than your black iron pipe will ever hope to be... Let's put this into perspective. The beer bottle you opened is about 10 psi, the same as your average high pressure low output burner! At normal temp, your pressure bomb sitting in the corner (with a weld completely around it) is around 150 psi... I think our beams are safe!

Great thread. My Brutus is 1/2 done, I have the pumps, Therminater, burners, thermowells, temp controllers, valves, and stand ready to go but am researching pilot light assemblies. I think I have all the information I need from these posts. Hopefully mine will be done in the next few weeks. I have a few minor changes I'd like to install. I want to add a grill on top to avoid heating the frame assembly. I also have two Belimo proportioning valves that I want to use for regulating pump flow from the control panel remotely (just because). If any one has any extra advise on a standing pilot assembly please chime in.

There is lots of good information in the Asco thread. I have done quite a bit of research on this topic.
