I need an orifice for a BG14 Banjo burner. I easily can find the 3/8x1/4 in. The BG14 needs a 3/8 flare x 3/8 npt.

Unless the burner casting has been altered, it is 1/4" NPT threaded, not 3/8" NPT.

With that thread title, I can't say anything that would not be sarcastic so I'll just wish you good luck with your problem!

Your thread title leaves you open for much derision. Many of us are looking for one, but we don't post that information here.

Thread title is just inviting off topic conversation and degradation of the thread... wouldn't three be better than one (brew kettle, mash, hlt)?

Thanks for the laugh! Guess maybe I should have read it outloud :-)

Here is the burners hat I bought from Northern Brewer and they are all 3 3/8". I ordered replacements from Norhtern and they came in 3/8 flare x 1/4 and they are to small.

Looks like they have a control valve orifice with your thread size. I just ordered a different one for my old turkey fryer.

Looks like one of their control valve orifices might work. I just ordered an orifice from them for my turkey fryer.

That's weird, We have gone through dozens of banjo burners and never experienced that. The simple fix is a 3/8" to 1/4" brass bushing.

I ordered this one. It does not specifically say what size it is but by the picture it looks right.
