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.

Based on another post, I picked up this stainless steel adjustable cake ring from Amazon to use as wind shield:

http://www.amazon.com/Adjustable-Cak.../dp/B0039A0LYI

I then cut a notch out of it so that it would fit over the burner and the fit is almost perfect. The height of the ring is about 1/2 inch shorter than the gap under the burner. I cut mine so that it would be flush with the bottom of the stand, so I needed to add some sort of spacer underneath the cake pan so that it sits flush with the bottom of the burner stand. I haven't fired it up yet but I have no reason to believe that it won't work.

I figured out a solution for filling the 1/2 inch gap between my cake ring and the bottom of the frame. If I stack a bunch of washers together they fit in the gap perfectly and prop the cake ring flush up against the top of the frame. I'm going to super glue the washers together and then use a rare earth magnet on the other side of the frame to hold the "spacer" in place. Two of these on either side should keep the cake ring nice and stable.
