Yes, it's the stock regulator with the green connector knob. We did manage to freeze up a 20 lb propane tank running it at a fairly high flame level. This required us to switch tanks about half way through the boil. The tank that froze up was full at the start. What happens is that the propane remaining in the tank gets so cold that it's vapor pressure drops to a point where it cannot change phase (liquid to gas) fast enough to keep up with the demand of the burner. Switching tanks out got us through to the end of the boil OK. We were running wide open throttle for most of the boil IIRC. Might have backed it off some once we got to a full hard boil. This was a pilsener, so a strong boil for 90 minutes was desirable. The Banjo got the job done with ease. It did, however, suck down quite a bit of fuel in the process.
