I currently use this Bayou Classic SQ14 for pressure canning:
I think I'm going to email Bayou Classic to order a new orifice and attempt to drill this out myself before making any large investments. That way, if I screw it up, then I still have my functional propane orifice.
I'll keep you guys updated to let you know how this goes. One of the frustrations I've found with looking at natural gas conversions is that people don't follow up on their posts regarding conversions. If I go this route I'll be sure to keep you updated.
Ultimately I will be buying another burner at a later date. So if I were to go with a jet burner, I'm only planning on doing 5gal, maybe 10 gal batches at most, so I imagine that a 10 jet burner would be ok?
Also I assume that a banjo burner would be sufficient for a 10 gal batch.
Thanks everyone for your help! I appreciate it!
