Found theses on a local Craigs List for sale, listed as "pig cooker burners".

I always thought pipe type burners were pretty much standard for pig cookers, are these really suitable, desirable, or to be avoided?


I guess I'm having trouble picturing how they would be arranged in a cooker.

The ones on the left are for sideburners, yes?

The lower right are the main burners? What about top, right?

While they look like really nice burners for the most part, I'm with you as far as figuring the configuration in a pig cooker.

the ones on the lower right have venturi shutters and all, but how would you pu them into a cooker where they would provide even heat for the whole cooker?

The ones on the left look OK for side burners or even a turkey fryer. The ones on the right make me think about welding up a big square steel deep fryer. You could add a temp controller and thermocouple and be in business.

How much for the lot of them?

$50 is what they are asking, but they are about an hour away to boot, so I'll pass on them I think.
