Good heat distribution and excellent flame control at any level. Puts out more than enough heat for 12 gallon+ batches. IMO, the Banjo puts out too much heat even at low flame levels. The multi-jet burners are designed to run WOT and burn dirty at anything less. They have no way to adjust the air/fuel ratio as most other burners do and they burn too hot.
The BG-12 is the best all purpose burner IMO.
