Does it have to be galvanized pipe? Galvanized pipe everywhere I look is incredibly expensive (i.e., 4 pieces of the appropriate diameter/length are going to cost more than the burner itself), and even just regular pipe is going to cost more than double what the Bayou extensions were going to cost. They've pretty much disappeared from the face of the earth.

Craigslist search should yield some pipe bargains as people seem to have leftovers from building etc.

I made my own leg extensions from black iron pipe. Have them cut to the length you desire and just slip them over the burner legs. I think I used 1-1/2" pipe purchased at Home Depot. Cheap and easy to do.

^That's great news! It's not on their website so I assumed they didn't have it. I'm stopping by there tomorrow for another reason so I'll take a look. Thanks!
