Small update,

 

  Got a charcoal grill added for steaks and grilled items. 

 

test fit to see what a good height would be for the grill setting it up on some blocks.

After setting it up there it fit nice in the spot.  The funny looking stack is on there because I was thinking about

 

added a damper to it, and plumbing it into the fire box for smoke extra smoking area if I needed..

But It hit the tank worse than I thought, and the angle of the lid looked like it would blast you in the face with heat

 

and also get really hot when starting the charcoal..icon_confused.gif

So cut it off and added a vent from ace hardware and not connect it to the fire box just made a damper on the other side.

You guys with the log lighters and gas assists are killing me with jealousy. Is it just me or is the flame yellow? How are you mixing air with the propane?

 

Looks good sunman. thumb1.gif

Here is a simple burner  that you will get a pretty blue flame and save you gas.Yellow flame is not very efficient.http://www.backyardmetalcasting.com/oliverburner1.html

well no luck yet getting a better flame drilled a hole by the valve to pull in some air worked a little bit till i really gave it some gas..th_violent5.gifthen a small amount of hair was lost...

 

Trying to make some nozzles to add to were the gas comes out kinda like the small propane torch and see what happens.

That looks awesome. Nice work. Love the separate charcoal grill. You may have too large of a gas orifice and you will never get enough venturi affect to pull the air needed for the nice blue flame.

You might just drill some holes in the pipe thats before your shut off.A adjustable regulator may be needed to fine tune your burner.

post #57 of 57

Most burners have the orifice (fuel jet) before the tube leading to where the flames come out. Maybe these pix will help.
