Default Propane Regulator for 300,000 btu?

I have a 300,000 btu propane burner on the way and I need a regulator. The only info I can find is that it requires "low pressure" propane.

Anyone know a good regulator that will supply enough gas to this burner? I have a 30 lb propane tank currently, and a few 15# for the other burners. I would imagine I need a much larger supply line, right?


Working on my 20 gallon setup, and this will be the kettle burner.

Thanks

30 psi is a high pressure unit. The standard used to be 20 but they recently reduced it to 10 due to all the dinks that set their houses on fire with turkey fryers.

Looks like you need a 2 stage regulator for LP gas, here are couple links for 2 stage regulators.

Check with a local RV parts supplier to see if they have the 2 stage regulators with the 300K btu ratings on the shelf. If you have a high pressure regulator you could use a second stage type regulator after the high pressure regulator if you kept the high pressure regulator set below 10 PSI.

That second link you provided has a 2-stage regulator for a 350,000 btu output rating, but supply's 2 psi....

By "low pressure" on the burner, what pressure is really required?

Thanks

Low pressure Lp gas pressure is nominaly 11"Wc /.40 psi and natural gas residential pressure is 4" Wc / .148 psi. most of the second stage regulators are factory set for 11" Wc and are usually adjustable + - 2" Wc. I am in error on the inlet pressure for second stage regulators, manufacturer wants no more than 2 PSI on the inlet not 10 PSI as stated above.
