I have read a ton of threads on this and can't really make up my mind on some of the hose connections on my stand.
I currently have 3 BG-14 NG burners that I am going to mount to a new stand.
I have the Williams Brewing 3/8" orifice/ball valve that screws directly into the back of the burner.
I think I will need a needle valve before this to fine tune the flame height with the NG setup.
I was thinking doing 1/2" black pipe > 3/8" needle valve > 3/8" hose > 3/8" orifice valve.
The orifice valve is a 3/8" flare fitting so I imagine i'll need some fittings to adapt to NPT threads for the hose assembly.
Anyone have any good suggetsions for the 3/8" needle valve? The 1/4" needle valves are really cheap and the 3/8" ones seem to just jump in price really quickly.
This one is only 7 bucks.
In looking into the BTU calculations I think it'll be necessary to stay at 3/8" line size to get the BTUs out of the burners.
Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?
