I just completed my three tier system, and i am using two of the 23 tip burners for the HLT and Boil Kettle!
i am using 1/2 copper pipe for the fuel suppy! fed by a 3/4 pipe t'd to 1/2"
two questions: what distance from burner tip to kettle? i have them set @ 4" but it seems too close , as it leaves the bottom of kettles black from soot? when the burners are running w/out the kettles on them, i get nice blue flames, but when kettle is on, there are orange tips? will try 6" next
second question: i am using ball valves to regulate the fuel flow, this works fine on the HLT but i need better control over my BK flame, very hard to make fine adjustments with the ball valve! is there some valve that is more precise ?.
thanks in advance
