Looking for a little additional input. I am building a propane cooker (double burner) and am getting ready to cut the holes in the plate that are above the burners.

My question is, what size diameter of hole do I need to cut into the plate. I was thinking about 8" would do it but figured I would throw it out there for some additional input.

Also, I am running 1/2" gas pipe to the unit up to the valves. From the valves to the burner I am going to run copper line. What size copper tubing do you think will be needed?

Thanks in advance!

Bill

Think of the diameter of the pot base you plan on using. If you are going recessed burners and put a pot bigger than 8" on the plate your flame and heat will have to move out and under what is under the plate? I would probably go 10" to 12".
1/4" or 3/8" is fine to feed the burner.
