I'm working out the plans for a single tier build and I have most of the propane plumbing figured out. The biggest question I have is about my particular regulator, which came as a Bayou Classic SP10. Keep in mind I'm trying to keep this budget tight so I can be wise with the money my wife is agreeing to let me spend on this hobby.
This is the actual part I have:
And the first part of the stand is going to be a 3/8" Tee so I can split off to each of the two burners.
#1: is 10PSI going to be enough to run two burners at once? So far I've been good with just one burner, so maybe this is a non-issue. My only thought was about mashing out the first batch sparge volume in the BK while warming water for the second batch.
#2: The orifice is built into the crimped swivel connection. My first thought is to just install a coupling between the orifice and the Tee (both 3/8). BUT, is it a problem that there is an orifice here and orifices downstream on the burners?
#2a: Am I just better off getting an adjustable regulator w/o the orifice, like this one? http://bayouclassicdepot.com/m5hpr1_propane_regulator.htm
(or an adjustable regulator?)
This is turning out to be a little bit trickier than I thought it would be. I've never dealt with propane plumbing before, so even figuring out the right combination of 1/4x3/8 fittings has been more work than I anticipated.
Thanks in advance for the help & insight!
