        A really big "thank you" to boykjo!!!!

        Have you ever tried a 2" diameter stainless burner?

        How do you think it would work?

        Wouldn't it change the hole diameter in the Gas Mix area?

        And do you cook with the slots DOWNWARD?

          Boykjo, you still out there? I realize this is an older thread but I have a question. I see you are using an adjustable high pressure regulator. I went to that website you posted but they don't list the pressure adjustments. By chance do you remember what they might be. I'm looking to use something like that for a small blacksmithing furnace. Also your pipe burner design works very well for heating narrow bluing salt trays. Uncrichie.

                What PSI regulator is that from AgriSupply?

                What PSI would I need for a 1.5" ID burner?

                PS I can't thank you guys enough for this thread.

                Totally AWESOME!!!!!!

                    One more question - how long can one of those 20 lb tanks be expected to last before they run out of gas? Would a tank last an entire day of cooking?

                          Hey Boyko, Don here. We are using our smoker all the time, thanks for your past help. I just smoked some venison last weekend. Came out good, but the marinade needs some tweeking.
                          To answer Corm, I find that a 20# tank of propane will last about 14 hours in my 250 gal size smoker. I use only 1 of my two 5', 1" dia, black pipe (Boyko) design burners at a time. Boston Butts take about 9 hours to cook, ribs about 4-5 hours.
                          To answer Paulaner, I have 2" stainless pipes that I originally was going to use (modeled after another smoker I had borrowed and 2" worked, but I never looked at the orifice dia.). However, after Boyko's help, the 1" black pipe is working wonderfully.
                          The only thing that I am still going to experiment with is to build up a 5', 1" dia. black pipe, with slots cut every 3" instead of every 1.5". Right now to keep my smoker at 225-250 deg F, I use only 1 of the 2 burners, and only open up the gas control valve slightly, and the flames are very low.
                          On the cooking side, there are 4 of us (2 couples) who have been putting on BBQ's for friends (we did one for 110 people 2 weekends ago). We now have matching aprons (going high cotton), with "For Big Butts" embroidered on them :=).
                          Don

                            Thanks Don, I was actually thinking the same......

                            I did a 1.5 inch diameter (stainless steel) and with the slots being 1 inch apart, it gets WAY TOO HOT!...It's got the prettiest blue flame I've ever seen, but just gets way too HOT!...... I'm trying now to figure out what I would need to cook at 275 degrees and "hold" 275 degrees for 7 to 8 hours.

                            I was thinking to go to 1" pipe and a tad smaller orifice diameter and spred my slots further apart. Maybe from 1" out to 2 1/2 or even 3"........

                            Let me know how your 5 footer does for you. And as soon as I get mine done, I'll let you know how it does, and if I was on the right track or not......

                            later, Marty

                              And one more thing about my first burner (the one that gets WAY TOO HOT)

                              I cut my slots using a Sawzall .....it cuts a little wider slot than a Portaband......

                              I'm thinking to use a Portaband on my next attempt (to reach a much lower temperature)

                              later

                                DO you think you could get the same results using 1 1/4 " pipe to build a burner by your design?
