Ok, I have just completed a build on a monster of a pit we named Godzilla. 9 foot tall 9 foot long offset cabinet style. Now to take it over the top I need flames to come up along side the stacks. Not a high pressure blowing type, just a nice gentle woosh of a flame, yet impressive. Stuck on the design though. Thinking propane through a regulator with a 3/8 hose, through a ball valve, Backflow preventer, then transition to a 3/4 iron pipe that terminates beside the stack. Will that give me what I am looking for or am I totally off track?

You'll also need an ignition source. Check out this guy. He rigged up something to come out his exhaust pipe.

While it may look cool personally having an open flame subjected to wind and what not is a bad idea. Without a constant ignition source it will be difficult to keep a low flame lit.
My mini me flame thrower (3/8" pipe and 1" barrel regulated) does well lighting my cooker but if it is windy I have to be there to monitor it because it will blow out with the slightest breeze.

Ezzy, Thanks. I tried using Tinypic to resize and get the url tag but it didn't work either. Will go the photobucket route next time per the tut.

Mike, Thats close to what I am looking for, but still a bit much pressure. Gives me something to work on though.

Kam, Very true on the concern. I am not looking for a low flame being constantly lit, maybe a once every couple hours burst just to make a quick showing for the crowd. do it too often and the novelty wears off and the awe effect is lost. That said, my first thought in this idea was 2 or 3 layers of safety. We do public vending and PC at comps, which usually means we get a visit from the fire department for an inspection, so the design has to be safe enough to satisfy them as well as myself. And to get to that level may turn out to be too complicated.

Take a look at Irfanview or GimpII for resizing images.
