Default Banjo BG-14

I have a small burner on a turkey fryer and was looking to upgrade to Banjo BG-14; anyone thoughts on this burner? Also, what regulator should I purchase for it?

Are you just going to get the burner or the burner and stand?

Just the burner, I have a stand that I think will work.

I did my first all grain a couple of weeks ago and the burner I have took forever, it was so slow, I used my weed burner to assist. I want to do another batch,but, not until I address this issue.

Ok, they do sell it with a stand that has the regulator.

For the High Pressure burner, I used this regulator:

http://www.agrisupply.com/high-press...84/cn/5400001/

and this hose:

They work. I probably use about 30% of their power or it's just total overkill. They do like to drink propane but it is much better than those turkey fryers. Much cleaner and quiet.

Thanks a bundle! I'm going to order.
I would rather spend a little extra on propane than stand around waiting.

Yeah I was wondering how a vaporizer did you any good but everyone has their own way.

That regulator is 0 - 30 psi. I think I have mine set to about 10.

Anyone know of any retail outlets(not online) that carry these?
