I have a question about propane pressure i installed 1/2 inch pipe put a regulator on the tank think it was 10 psi had no pressure to run the double burner. so then i ran no regulator from the tank and put regulator at the stove and it does have a 10 psi regulator as soon as you light the burner it has a lot of btu then the pressure drops and the flame dies to the point you couldn't fry french fries was wondering why the flow drops and does anyone have a solution? Thanks in advanced for your input.

Not at home so cant provide pic but I had similar problems with a dual burner setup for my crawfish/ shrimp boiling rig. Because of the different burner designs, one wide open and one restricted because of flame disk, I came to the conclusion that it provided too much back pressure to the regulator. I teed at the tank and put 2 separate regulators with 2 separate needle valves for burners to run independent of each other. Solved problem immediately for me.
Good job by the way. It looks great. I am in the process of building a similar rig with exact same size cc. Might have future questions for you. Hope I was some help to you.

Going to try putting the regulator back straight to tank and see if i still have same problem i am guessing the regulator must b be having a problem. I am willing to help with any questions you have.

I know some propane tanks have safety valves in them.. if you turn the tank valve on to fast it will think there is an open line and have no back pressure which in turn kicks in the safety valve and you will only get very little pressure... try just cracking the valve and let it build up pressure before opening all the way ... worth a shot ...
