Bayou Classic SP10 Flame Spreader / Diverter
I have a Bayou Classic SP10 that I have started doing some different cooking with (boiling pots of pasta, chineese wok cooking) and what I notice is the flame is super intense in the middle with very little 'spread' for heat to the outside of any pot, kettle, wok, etc.

I was wondering what ideas you would have to implement some type of flame spreader or diverter so that the flame is more uniform over a larger area. One of my main questions - What kind of materials would/should I use?

I have an stainless steel double boiler strainer (I own two) that I could hack up and suspend with brackets above the burner, but didn't know if the stainless would hold up under a direct and intense flame (an SP10 burner is rated at 185,000 SPU).

Obviously, Bayou makes other burners with better flame distribution, but I am on a budget and need to make the one I have just work better and more versatile.

Thanks in advance.

what you have is a high pressure burner used for boiling. What you need is a low pressure burner if you will be using it to cook. You can pick up a low pressure burner for about $15 from your gas supply store, but you will also need a new jet and a orfice.

A piece of 1/4" steel plate should do the job.
