I must say I love your setup and I am trying to build mine pretty close to your setup. The one thing I am really confused about is the burner. I have done lots of reading and the low vs high pressure is killing me. I see that you go the BG-14 Kick A banjo Burners from Agrisupply I want to get these, but on the website they say High Pressure. Please tell me that it doesn’t matter, or did you do something to this burner.

Thanks for your wonderful posts!

Just buy the burners and use a 0-20psi adjustable regulator. It doesn't matter, the burner will come with the correct orifices already attached. You will need to build a manifold from black pipe (not galvanized!) and use gas rated ball valves. (see the water heater/appliance department of your hardware store).

Thanks for the quick reply!

But what if you want to put the same Honeywell 24v Solenoid Gas Valve, will that work with the high pressure hookup?

I will also have three burners two with Honeywell and one direct connect.

Like this company is selling low pressure bayou burners

thanks,

If you look on the BayouClassic site you'll see they are used with a high pressure regulator. You will need different pressure regulators for use with a furnace valve. Fixed 2-stage low pressure regulators like those used on RVs are your best bet.

Funny thing is that I looked at that website, but for some reason couldn't find it.

Thanks again for all your help!

Does anyone know if it possible to get reasonable bends in the 1/4" copper tubing without using a pipe bender? Or is it likely to kink?
