If you are looking for a large footprint burner, your search is over!

10" cast iron "Banjo" burner has 16" cooking surface. 
Includes a 30 PSI preset regulator with brass control valve.
6" high wind screen.

Propane Troubleshooting:

If you are not getting the best flame possible out of your propane burner, you may have triggered a safety valve in the propane regulator body. This occurs when the gas flow through the regulator is too great. You will need to disconnect the regulator from your propane tank to release the safety valve. While connecting your regulator to your propane tank, it is very important that the propane tank and all needle valves are completely closed. Once the regulator is correctly connected to your closed tank, open the propane tank slowly to allow gas to flow into the regulator. You can now open the needle valve enough to ignite your burner. Once the burner is lit you can slowly open the needle valve until you reach the desired flame intensity.

Good burner
Overall, a good burner that gets the job done. The heart of the item is the 10" cast iron propane burner manifold, which other more expensive manufacturers use (or used) in their products as well. Pros: It's cast iron, not a welded multi-piece item that some other manufactures use. Heat distribution is very good, facilitating rapid heating and boil times. The propane regulator and hoses are solid, and there were no leaks in my unit. That's it in a nutshell. It a good compromise between getting a kettle to boil, and not sucking up lots of propane. If you need more BTUs, you can get another regulator (15, 20 or 30 PSI). Cons: Instructions (mostly warnings about the danger of burns, incineration, and oxidizing organic matter [namely, you]) are poorly written, and, if you follow the instructions to the letter, don't allow its use as it's intended! Another downside is the stand. Sturdy enough, but no ability to increase its height. And why did they paint it black when, after several uses, burns off and leaves ashes everywhere. Perhaps it's meant to prevent oxidizing or the adherence of moisture during shipment, but it's an aggravation and affects its appearance. Third, the wind shield is merely adequate. I would have given 3.5 stars, but because the heart of the unit - burner and regulator - is good, the final rating is 4.
