I ended up using Bobby_M's design but with 17 jets, blocking the center four and two others. I have no problems with using a pilot light and not having all jets light as long as my kettle in on the stand when the jets light off. Take it off and not all jets light up.

I also fought orange sooty flames by trying various heights of the burner. Nothing worked until I put a couple of angle irons on top of the stand and set the kettle on them. I have wider kettles (Megapot) and I believe they block enough of the side area that the CO2 cushion Bobby_M talks about develops very quickly underneath the kettle. Raising the kettle an inch or so provided enough vent area that everything works fine.

My NG supply is half inch and I have a regulator dropping the pressure to 3.5 pounds. I also have a ball valve downstream of the control solenoid.

Here are the burners on low, the rig and the burners on high. The HLT and BK are each 45 gallons and the MT is 35 gallons

I made a new burner stand that was modeled off of this thread but since I have a good friend that manages a plumbing supply business, I came up with a half insane pipe based stand for my natural gas burner. The burner itself was a piece of cake to deal with... a utility hose, the right fittings and about 1 hour later I've got 3 psi of natural gas on my front porch where I've always wanted to do my brewing. This burner as it is set up has more than enough variability which I know has been a concern for some. I quadruple seasoned an aluminum pot to be my new HLT and I could bring it to near scortching in 5 mins or 30 mins or anywhere in between. I should also say that IMO stainless steel zip ties make mounting the burner and flashing to the stand a breeze.

Bringing up an old thread but I have now used my natural gas stand 3 times and love it! The first time is used it I kept all 23 tips, mistake. I didn't like the one on the OP because it wasn't spread out enough so I did my own version and have no issues with lighting all the tips at once.
