I forgot to tell you the warning.

The only oriface I could find that fit on a 1/8th inch fitting was a natural gas oriface.

It will work fine for starting a chimney but it iwll burn like a torch.

High pressure! Then again it might work just fine.

Attach that thing inside a metal milk crate and you'll have a fine side burner!

Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Remember.... MATCH FIRST!

It should arrive in 6 - 8 days.

I have a regulator to control the pressure!!

If I can find some I will, Crawfish season starts after February. One way or another I will get a photo of it in use.

If you take a 1/8" NPT grease fitting and remove the ball by grinding off the retainer on the thread side, it will work perfect.

How about a turkey fryer burner? I've used those before with good luck. Lowe's carries a high pressure(150K BTU) one from Bayou Classic or something like that.

That's what I use 90% of the time...I think mine was $40 or so.
