My Bayou Classic SQ14 Windscreen Addition
 
5 Attachment(s)
I hemmed and hawed on which Bayou Classic to buy; the SQ14 or the SP10. For me, a struggle point was the wind screen or lack thereof. Lots of folks said it was easy to add a windscreen but I'm not always so handy.
But, it's rreeaall easy so I had to post in case someone else out there is wondering about this now.

(The following has been added from my last post in this thread)
I found what is called a "Starting Collar" in the roof venting section of Home Depot. This specific one was 8" and seemed the perfect size in both diameter and height. I think it's a Master Flow SCF8. It has a bunch of tabs which I bent to help get into position. I then used the same tabs to attach it to the bar that the burner is also attached to. I had to drill two holes for attaching this collar and that was the hardest part. Some #8x1/2 sheet metal screws are holding this on perfectly.
A pair of tin snips made quick work of the notching required to go over the burner neck.

More detail on how I attached the SCF8:
Basically, I used a couple of the tabs for attaching the SCF8 to the rails that hold the burner. I think I drilled 1/8" holes if I remember right. The screws were sheet metal so they are pretty forgiving. You will want to drill a hole that is appropriate for the screw size you get no matter what. I uploaded two new pics to further illustrate the attachment.

Is it galvanized? What’s the thickness? Looks like roof flashing for a duct fan…? Have you cooked w/it yet? Looks like melting might be a problem…???

Nice idea OP.

I imagine metal duct piping designed for wood stoves or prefab fireplaces would be ideal for this application. My neighbor (who saves bottles for me and has drank lots of my beer) is a certified chimney sweep. May have to hit him up for some scrap chimney pipe.
