If less than half of those currently directly subscribed to the HBD sent in a mere $5.00, the HBD would be able to easily meet its annual expenses, with room to spare for next year.

---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 25 Jan 2011 18:32:39 -0500 From: Paul Hethmon <phethmon at hethmon.com> Subject: natural gas regulators First, thanks to everyone for the replies and suggestions. I thought I would send a single response and follow up. Ryan Kearn suggested some ball valves: I've got ball valves on each burner to control the output already though I'm not convinced these are the best burner design for doing variable control. The one good burning burner can be controlled fairly well with the valve. bill keiser asked about an air/gas mixing adjustment; These type of burners have no adjustment at all. The brass jets are milled, no moving parts. oobyjooby asks whether both are in fact the same: That's a good idea for me to check. I will do that, though perhaps not tonight. While they were purchased together, that doesn't mean they are the same. Cursory handling of them makes them look the same. Chuck Petersen suggests making sure no creepies are in the way: Mine are inside, but that doesn't rule out little creepies in the jets. I'll be sure to clean them out when I check them. - --- What I've decided to try is to add a natural gas regulator made by Maxitrol, model RV48. Since HBD is still a bit picky on line length and such, I won't post a link, but a Google search will turn it up. Runs about $17 and is available in both a 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch size. It's rated to supply enough gas for 230k btus/hour. I'll follow up with the results once I have it installed and brew. Thanks again for all the suggestions.
