Thanks! The casters are locking swivel casters bought on ebay. I welded them on.

Did you use any fuses other than the integrated fuse on the 110v power input?

I have the correct orifices installed depending on the pressure and have tweaked the air / gas mixture in every conceivible combinations but the low pressure just does not compete or burn as clean as the high pressure fed burner. I don't know why, perhaps it's the banjos are designed for high pressure in mind?

Anyway I'm going with low pressure to the HLT and MT, with high pressure on BK so I can get a quick and rolling boil going. I don't need burner temp control on BK so don't need the Honeywell gas control there
I had a question about this: Is there a difference in flame height between the low pressure burners and the high pressure one? If so, how did you compensate in regards to the positioning/height of the burner for the BK?

Thanks,

Mike

Your stand is awesome. I'm currently building a stand myself and thinking about using your burner mount idea. I was curious to know how the wind screens are working. Did you buy the aluminum pre cut to the size or did you or cut it yourself? Thanks.

Thanks. I made the burner rings from .050 Stainless. I have seen some for sale. They block the wind very well.

Hey awesome job! I am building one now without the control box, maybe take that on later. I was wondering about the height? Is 30 inches high enough to be able to put your keggles down below without hitting them on your burners? In other wards, Are you happy with the clearance you have when storing them below?
Thanks
Jim

Josh, are you happy with the height as far as clearance for storing the keggles down below?
Thanks
