I wouldn't worry about delivering the full amt of gas to the banjo. I use on on my keggle as a boil kettle and wow, I don't even turn it up more than 25% and it heats fast. More than that and the flames come up around the sides and boil my sight glass liquid.

The dual set up works great.
Each hose has its own adjustment after the regulator.



I found the best burn with the valves only a quarter open.

Started my stand this weekend. Yesterday I cut my MLT and BK (already have a keggle for the HLT) and installed the hardware.

Today I built the strut stand

...continued. Few more pics of the stand build. I used a buddy's old 10" Ryobi saw with a metal cutoff disk, cut like butter. All in all an easy build!

Next steps are casters, burners, manifold/regulator, mount pump.

Now those are on backorder, too . I couldn't find a good alternative on GP-LLC. Anyone see something I'm missing or have another source?
