May no longer include 20 psi regulator, 48″ hose or brass needle control valve, July 28, 2011

The Amazon description and pictures all indicated that the 20 psi regulator with the brass needle valve and 48″ hose are included. Even the outer box I received from Bayou Classic confirms all of these same specs. But when I opened the box I found a M5HPR regulator & hose set that is 10 psi with a 36″ hose and a plastic control knob on the regulator. (We received this burner on July 28, 2011)

Not very happy as this is what comes on lesser models and is not the same 20 psi regulator and needle valve that has made this burner set so powerful and easy to control. I have a feeling that this is another one of those product improvements…that is an improvement for the bottom line of the manufacturer.

Please see my pic with the regulator package next to the label from the outer box it came in.

From Bayou Classic about their high pressure regulator:
The Stainless Steel 20 PSI Propane Regulator Kit includes a 48 inch high pressure hose, which is the standard length of a propane hose and has been found to be the safest length. The regulator on this hose kit has 20 PSI. The BTUs for this regulator kit is 185,000 BTUs and is still considered high pressure. (Compared to 55,000 10 PSI regulators). This kit also includes a brass control valve also known as a needle valve.

UPDATE:
July 29-Called Bayou Classic and their customer service rep said that this was the second call he had received about the contents of the SP10 box not matching the description on the box. He said they would ship me out a replacement regulator Aug 1st at no charge to me. I began to confirm the specifications with him and he said it will be a 20 psi regulator but he has not heard of a 48″ hose before, only the 36″. Will update when the replacement regulator comes.

UPDATE:
Aug 4-Received replacement hose and regulator set from Bayou Classic. On this replacement set the regulator is 20 PSI, the hose 48″ inch and it has the needle control valve-exactly what is specified to come with this burner. Now that I have everything I went to assemble the burner to find out the shutter spring is not in the box and the welded-in bracket to support the cast iron burner is off center nearly an inch.

This unit is a sturdy Hi/Low burner for outdoor cooking. It comes with a 20 lb regulator and a 4-foot braided SS hose to be used with a 20lb propane cylinder. The only assembly required is to attach the hose to the burner by sliding the cone shaped spring through the end of the hose and the air control shutter and screwing it into the burner. The instructions do not mention the spring. It acts as a tension washer; place the larger end towards the air control shutter and the smaller end towards the hose.

The welded steel frame of this burner is painted black to protect it during shipping. The paint will burn off the first time you use the burner so it is best to place a large pot of water on the burner for about an hour and let the paint burn off before you start cooking. You could coat the frame with cooking oil to reduce rust; I just keep mine the carton. As stated, this burner is intended for outdoor use only so DO NOT use inside garages, under decks, or on wooden decks especially if you are heating oil for deep fat frying.

Pay close attention to the lighting instructions. Shut off the main value on the propane tank and the shut off valve on the hose. Close the air shutter valve to the lowest setting. Use a long-nosed propane BBQ style lighter from underneath the burner. Open the tank valve, and with the long-nosed lighter already lit, crack the hose valve ¼ turn counterclockwise, and wait until you hear the burner light. Adjust the air shutter for a blue flame. Open the hose valve for a hotter flame if desired. Be careful, the flame is hard to see on sunny days. If the flame goes out, shut off the hose valve and wait a few moments for the propane to dissipate before re-lighting. The low settings are a bit tricky to achieve. If you picture the off setting being at 12 o’clock then the 10 o’clock setting will be low and 11 o’clock will yield a simmer setting. On windy days, the burner is prone to go out at these lower settings despite the built-in windscreen. I have found the best way to check to see if it is still lit is to turn it up so it is easy to see the flame then turn it back down. Remember to use oven mitts and wear shoes.

I have seen this burner rated at 175,000 BTU’s on other websites (not Bayou Classic) and some of the reviews here. This is not true. A BTU is the amount of energy needed the raise one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. This unit is theoretically rated at about 55,000 BTU’s and in real life it produces about 40,000 BTU’s. Here’s what you need to know. On a 70-degree calm day, I was able to bring 9 gallons of water in an 11-gallon pot to a rolling boil in 35 minutes. To test steam production I used the same pot filled with 3″ of water and had lid-lifting steam in 8 minutes.

This burner is useful for boiling water for cooking, brewing or for steaming lobsters, clams, corn, and sterilizing canning jars. It is great for heating peanut oil for deep-frying. I throw a couple of old enameled BBQ grates on top of the burner when doing soups stews etc. I ordered this item from Amazon requesting free shipping and received it in just two days. It arrived packed inside two cartons so there was no shipping damage. This item is a great valve based on what it can do for such a low price. I down-rated it to 4 stars because of the lack of information in the instructions about installing the spring.

Update September 2011 – I went down to the beach to steam some corn and could not get the burner to light properly. I tried reassembling the gas line but still couldn’t get a strong flame. Cobwebs in the venturi? – Bad Regulator? – No, I forgot the proper lighting sequence (tank value off – regulator valve off – hook up gas hose – open tank value FIRST – then crack regulator value and light). If you do not follow this sequence there is a safety devise that prevents the gas from flowing. If this happens to you, do the following to reset the devise. Close all valves, remove the hose from the propane tank, open the regulator valve (you can hear the device reset), close the regulator value and reattach the hose to the tank and start the lighting sequence as above.

This review is from: Bayou Classic SP10 High-Pressure Outdoor Gas Cooker, Propane (Lawn & Patio)
The Bayou Classic cut about 45 minutes to an hour off of my brew time. Got three gallons of water to a boil in less than half the time of my kitchen range, and held a good strong boil for an hour. If you’re a homebrewer looking to leave the stovetop, and go to an outdoor propane cooker, this is the one to buy.
