Product Details

A propane burner without stand. Perfect for constructing your own custom brew stand or upgrading another burner. Four mounting points allow for a secure connection to your stand creation.

In our 60-quart MegaPot, this burner was able to boil ten gallons of water (at 100 F) in 45 minutes - using only two pounds of propane. A great balance between BTU power and fuel-efficiency. Runs at 210,000 BTUs on propane only, and cannot be converted to natural gas. Includes brass orifice and air intake cover plate. For mounting, burner diameter is approximately 11".

Required but not included: propane regulator hardware and a stand.

Works great but missing parts.
They work great for what I'm doing. Not brewing but an industrial heating process. However 3 of the 12 I ordered were received with missing parts.

Not sure what was missing. It's just the burner. Let us know if we can help!

This burner is nuts!
Incredible heating power! Will get your wort up to boil in no time. The only downside is it gets a bit difficult to regulate 210,000 BTUs...

Awesome burner, installed in a brew sculpture
Great burner great price. Awesome for brew sculpture builds. Remember the kit for the regulator!!!

Bought this to replace my little turkey fryer and I am very impressed. Really speeds up the boil time and it is extremely quite. Doesn't use much gas, burns clean and even. Great buy and good price too.

Great burner
I have a 23 jet burner and a basic high pressure burner and this guy gets my 10 gallon batch boils going fast and is way more efficient than my 23 jet burner.

BAD {posterior} BURNER...
This is just bad {posterior}..it's like a jet engine. I'm buying another one for my new 2 tier system. I brewed w/ a standard burner 2 wks ago, and it took me forever to get my wort to boil, I don't really think i got a true boil. The Banjo Burner kicked {posterior} and took names later. Strongly recommend getting 1 or even multiple.

Great investment
Excellent addition to our brew rig. It has reduced our 10 gallon boil time from 45 minutes to barely 20 minutes. Glen is correct on the noise - it's very quiet.

Great Product
Much better flow control and even burning compared to my old cheap burners. I have 3 of these on my 3-tier system.

Is there a mounting spot on the bottom of the burner? Or are all four on the sides?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are 4 mounting spots on the sides and no mounting spots on the bottom.
Is this a high pressure or low pressure burner? What regulator should be used for this?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can use either propane or natural gas. You just need to attach the correct orifice to the burner. If you are using propane you will need a regulator to connect to the propane tank. If you use natural gas you will not need a regulator and just connect it directly to the supply line
What fittings will I need to make this burner work with a regulator? seems that the fittings that come with this burner are larger than standard.
Robert F on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Either buy the hose and regulator for this burner or have a plumber make a flared copper tubing connection. My burners are on a fixed brew stand. I plan on running the copper tubing to a 3/8 black pipe fixed to the brew stand. I have 3 burners on the brew stand so everything is ridged. There will be a hose and regulator on one end of the pipe connected to the tank. This is just in the planning stages. Sorry I don't have any pictures yet Emmett
Can this replace my burner in my dark star burner?
J N on Nov 23, 2015

The darkstar uses a smaller diameter burner than this. Thus

the Banjo burner would not work well as a replacenet. Hope this helps.
What size are the mounting nuts on these as I lost the long ones and need to replace them to mount this?
D A on May 9, 2016

Those are 1/4" bolts. The longer ones include with the burner are 3/4" in overall length.
Would a turkey fryer regulator work with this or would I need to bu an completely different one?
I B on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Any 10 PSI high pressure regulator will work!
Would you recommend it for a 30 gallon system?
D D on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is one of the most powerful burners available so would be a fine choice for that batch size. When doing a large volume heated with a burner, the real question is how quickly will this get the job done and how bored will I get sitting around watching water try to boil. It should be able to get the job done and as quickly as any other burner option, if you hook it up with a 10 PSI high pressure regulator. Cheers!
Anyone know if this will fit into the bayou classic burner stand?
J H on Jan 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You'd have to measure your current burner and compare to the specs on this one. I believe this is larger than the standard bayou classic burner. Hope that helps.
I've seen what I think is this same burner on another site, but they list on 60K BTUs and are calling it a low pressure burner. Here, there have been a mix of answers - some say hi pres., some say low....which is it?
Paul S on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I got a control valve in the gas line that regulate the pressure up and down I hope this helps you
Will the regulator from my dark star burner work with this?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it did, but I needed a few other fittings from the hardware store to make it work, with mine I could boil 5 gals of water in 16 minutes.
What is the difference between this burner and the burner in a blichman or edleman? Does this create soot like the dark star? Thanks.
C H on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is very similar to the burner in either the Blichmann or the Edelmetall burners. If set up and run correctly, it should burn with a very nice blue flame, and not produce soot. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Where do I purchase the receiver, or the regulator part that doesn't come with the burner itself to make it fully functional?
Austin W on May 15, 2016

You should be able to find the regulator assembly at any hardware store. A 30 psi gas regulator assembly is recommended. I hope that this helps!
Hi, i can use This burner for my pot with 50 galons capacity?
