Keggle skirt holes for additional burner venting
 
1 Attachment(s)

Has anyone cut additional holes in their keggle skirts to allow better venting from the burners? The flames on my new stand aren't curling downward, but it appears that the combination of windscreen/frame is interrupting the flow of exhaust gasses. I'm thinking a series of 1/2" holes along the top of the skirt would work, or if i get lazy bigger slots with the angle grinder.

you could try my chimney idea which is working great. the hot gases escspe out one corner and the "Stack Effect" draws the fresh air up from below the burner. here's a link to my build http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/sing...-build-293204/

I could only find a few pics - I sold that rig last year. As I recall, we made a hole in the bottom of the keg just large enough for the tube to pass through and fuse-welded it to the bottom with a TIG machine. You can barely see the underside in one of the pics. I made a restrictor from a SS washer to sit on top of the flue to keep the flames from shooting out of the top. The lid has a flap that slides open to let the gasses out & to help keep the heat in when the burner is off. I hope this helps.....
