I went looking for some posts on prepping the aluminum prior to using but had little to no luck. Oh well hopefully it won't be noticeable since its such a hearty beer (Oatmeal stout).

Has anyone done the 10 min in the oven at 350 to oxidize it? That would take less time and energy.

No, but remember the outside will be oxidized too. Just not as pretty.

I never bothered with the oven method as I'd rather do a boil and have that be a test run before I use it to brew.
My test run went OK with this burner...I learned that I need to use flashing for a wind block in any wind for sure to maximize the power of this thing. But for it being cold, dark, and very windy it went well enough lol.
I'm actually going to do another test run before I brew...since I do partial boils, this time I will do about 3gal instead of 5 and note timing etc.

Question: Can you do the initial 30 minute boil to make the oxide layer, then let that water cool to strike temperature and use that boiled water for your mash?

Seems like that would be easier, and less wasteful, than boiling 6-7 gallons, dumping it, then heating up fresh water for the mash.

Hello everyone, OP again. After searching for a grill for my dad for father's day I came across this post for a 20-gallon tank adapter (basically the same thing that our turkey frier uses for regulation of flame level). Seems like this is what happened to me and why when I turned the gas back on after adding the wort (and this would have been on low to prevent scorching while I made sure it was all dissolved) I got the much larger flame that would have actually gotten me to boiling. This would also explain several members different experiences with this (ie some people couldn't get large amounts of water to boil, while others it only took 20 min). Here's the post:

BYPASS INSTRUCTIONS
GAS GO ANYWHERE, WEBER Q + BABY Q
Since 1995, all regulators on gas barbecues have a safety device which restricts the gas flow in the event of a gas leak. You can inadvertently activate the safety device without having a gas leak. Typically, this occurs if you open the LP tank valve too rapidly, or if the valve + regulator assembly is in a slightly open position when opening the LP tank valve.
Your must remember when you are grilling you should always do the tank valve first and then the valve + regulator assembly when you start grilling or stop grilling. Never turn off the valve + regulator assembly before the tank. Gas is trapped in the valve + regulator assembly and adapter hose and the next time you turn on the tank, that residual gas in the line will back up and trigger the safety device.

Also, when you start grilling, you should open the tank valve V-E-R-Y S-L-O-W-L-Y, about ¼ turn at a time until it is all the way open before you turn on your valve + regulator assembly to light the grill even is it takes 30 seconds to a full minute. If you've just had your tank refilled, it has a lot more pressure in it at first than after you use it for awhile. That may trigger the safety device sometimes, too. These conditions can be recurring. If it happens again, then you will need to go through the reset procedure again.

If you do activate the gas regulator safety device, the barbecue will only reach temperatures between 250 and 300 degrees, even with the valve + regulator assembly on the HIGH setting.

TO RESET THE GAS REGULATOR SAFETY DEVICE:

Open the barbecue lid.
1. Close the LP tank valve.
2. Turn valve + regulator assembly to the OFF position.
3. Wait at least 5 minutes if the barbecue had been lit
4. Disconnect the adapter hose from the LP tank.
5. Turn valve + regulator assembly to the HIGH position.
6. Wait at least 2 minutes, then turn valve + regulator assembly to the OFF position.
7. Re-connect the adapter hose to the LP tank.

RE-LIGHTING THE BARBECUE:

Open the barbecue lid.
1. SLOWLY open the LP tank valve 1/4 turns at a time all the way open.
2. With the lid open, turn valve + regulator assembly to the HIGH position.
3. Ignite the grill by pushing the crossover ignition button.
4. After the burner is lit, close the lid.
5. The barbecue should reach 500 to 550 degrees in 10-15 minutes.
WHEN YOU ARE DONE GRILLING:
Turn off the LP tank valve first
Turn valve + regulator assembly to the OFF position.
