The most effective pattern is when they are all aimed at another jet.

I plugged all of mine except 6. All 6 are aimed into the middle, so that all 6 jets hit together.

Just unscrew one of the burners, take it down to Home Depot and get a nut with the same size thread, no more than an 1" long. While there get some gas Teflon tape. Then screw the nut into the burner.

It is an unusual thread, I found the nuts I needed in the specialty nuts and bolts bins.

Thanks, I will give it a look. I have some gas tape already. The first couple of burners had lots of loose jets to be fixed. Part of me wants to just ditch the two I have running with the Blichmann TOP controllers and get some low pressure Hurricane burners. I have to readjust the ignitor gap on the jet about 3 times per session. I think it would be better on the cast iron Hburners.
