So are the 10 tip burners from topfoodservice low pressure? I've tried asking them but have not gotten a reply.

I like my boilermakers a lot. But after using them, I do wish they were all welded ports. Other than that they are great. The sight glass and false bottom are the best features I think.

I hate keggles,

SS or Boilermakers are definitely better if you can afford them. SO much more versatile than a keg.

BucksPA, I just got a response from topfoodservice, and they say they are high pressure. Did you change out the tips in your to be low pressure? Or do you just have a low pressure regulator and they work good enough with that?

on the boxes i recieved it reads low pressure lp. i also got an adjustable 0-30 psi regulator and it works great. i can adjust it to trickle like a match or full blown blue torch fire. i didntg change out any tips or make any modiifcations. i ordered over the phone so maybe they carry both.

After using Keggles, economy SS pots, and aluminum stock pots, the BoilerMaker is like a heavenly gift. They are by far the best kettle IMO.

Easy to move around. Easy to modify. High quality workmanship. High quality components. Designed with exactly what we need.

IME, they can't be beaten.
