Talking Klose MOD - Pre-Heater, gaser, log/charcoal chimney lighter, crawfish/crab pot boiler - with PRON!

Hey guys, did a simple MOD to the Klose, thought i'd share the Pron with my brothers and sisters here.

When i bought my Klose unit, i also got the log lighter, because it comes with regulator hose, LP bottle holder, and threaded hole in firebox.

I added about $15 worth of black pipe fittings, a quick connect, and a 100,000 BTU jet burner, that i can use to Pre-heat the pit, light the logs, light a chimney of charcoal, or boil a crawfish or crab pot.

what you get with log lighter, minus the tank i already had.





and this....




and this....





Here are the 1/2" NPT threaded holes they provide to stick 3/8" log burner pipe through. I left it caped, up till now.






Here is tank and regulator hose with new quick connect and a few other plumbing fittings added






Here is the new 10 nozzle jet burner






Added a few black pipe pieces and a union. Had to adjust so that ash pan can clear the bottom and grate clears the top, which took a few prototypes to arrive at that happy point, but finally got there.






Here it is in log-charcoal chimney starter/"add some instant heat"/crawfish/crab pot mode...



And here it is set up in pre-heat mode, with a 12"x12" 1/4" thick plate set on rack above to displace heat and not turn the top of my firebox red And yes, it heats this thing up FAST!

Wow, that's some serious heat you've got there.

Get yourself a cast iron skillet and you've turned your Klose into a propane smoker. (Did I just say that?)

LOL hey bro, naw.. it just looks that way, it's 1/2" steel firebox it ain't going nowheres ( i have plans to line interior with thin fire brick.. someday).

Nice thing is, i can preheat the whole unit fast, then start a fire, or dump charcoal, and i'm ready to rock. OR if i need a quick boost of heat.

In addition, i also forgot to mention, every now and again when stick burning i can hook up my compressed air hose to that quick connect and blow "air" threw the jets - cleaning them out AND introducing some "forced" air to the fire at the same time

Yeah, but Klose wanted $575.00 for theirs!
And it came out the side of the fire box on back side, so I don't think it's as versatile as this one either.

I just drew a lot of attention to myself at the office... I laughed out loud when I saw the flame in pre-heat mode... great job! I'm now envious!
