I posted this on the 10 tip Jet Burner Topic but thought I would add my findings here as well -
Hmmm. Just gave it a test with the 10 gallon Blichmann pot.
Took 47 minutes to reach my average strike temp of 165*
Took a total of 66 minutes to reach 190*
Total of 76 minutes to hit 200*
and 92 minutes to reach boil.
I'm so discouraged. I could bring 15 gallons of water to a boil with my old ghetto system and it takes over an hour and a half to boil 8 gallons???
I noticed that the sound of the burner was about half of what it was when the pot was not on the stand. Double checked this after the test was over and sure enough, loud and kicking with no pot on. I also checked the regulator and screwed the adjustment screw all the in to close. No change and the flame kept right on burning.
This about as radical as the boil got 15 minutes after reaching the boiling point.
This handle was so hot you couldn't leave your hand on it.
Wind guard all blued out now. Should it be further down completely covering the burner?
What gives? It's like it's too hot but not boiling the water as quickly and vigorously as the heat it produces would indicate.
