Default BG14 question

So forgive me if this has already been asked. I'm trying to figure out what regulators you guys using with the BG14 burner. I recently had to switch to LP from NG because I moved. I bought a low pressure regulator off another member here but I'm not sure what kind it is. I'm using a little ball valve LP orifice I bought from Williams Brew, but I can't get a good blue flame. Also, I have messed with the air shutter on the burner itself with no luck. Any ideas? It has to be my regular right?

I use a 30 psi high pressure reg, works great!

Whoa! Back the truck up!

Domestic NG runs around 0.4 psi. A 30psi regulator on NG will do exactly squat wrt powering a BG14. I doubt you'd even get the burner to burp.

Most likely the burner isn't getting sufficient gas flow for the venturi to actually pull in sufficient make-up air. What is needed is a high volume 11" WC regulator, followed by that Williams needle valve/orifice combo.

Should set things right, as long as the NG line being tapped can provide sufficient gas flow to begin with...

Cheers!
