Thumbs up Re: two stage regulators

Wow.

Thanks Left C for all of the extremely thorough and valuable information.

If I ever have the need for another regulator or needle valve I'll definitely come back and reference this.

Thanks Andy

I hope that you get a chance to check them out.

How is the Bar-B-Que in Belmont? It is not that great here in Burlington.

Have you see the Victor thread at TPT and the Dual Stage thread at The Barr Report? If not, there are tons of info from many knowledgeable people.

Well, my family is from the eastern side of the state (Wilson), so I prefer the barbecue from there, but there are a few places where you can get some decent barbecue. Actually, the Culinary Arts teacher that teaches at the same school as I do is also from the eastern side, and she teaches the students how to make that style of barbecue and then sells it, so I always look forward to that time of year.

I've never really spent any time checking out any of the other forums since I've always been happy with what I've been able to find here. Occasionally I'll follow a link that someone will post that takes me to another site, but I always come back after reading what they were directing me to. I've read your posts about two stage regulators in the past, and it appears to me that you really know your stuff. My regulator is doing fine right now, but the two stage ones definitely look like they would be the way to go if I ever need to get another one. When that time comes I'll go check out those other sites too.

Thanks again,

Andy

That sounds very good. It is amazing that we have so many styles of Bar-B-Que in this state. Lexington style seems to be the most popular. We have one that several presidents and many important people have eaten at here in Burlington, but ... to me ... it is just OK.

I think that both threads have had 125,000+ views and around 2700 posts. There's a bunch of material in them.

Hi Herns,

Bill at Ideal told me: V52-1-12 chrome is $83.50 each and V54-1-12 is $112.50

Speaking of the VTS253A-1993 regulators, here are some new ones with the NuAire name plate: http://www.scientificvisions.com/cat...products_id=52

How does the barbeque differ in the east vs. the Durham area? I have family in Durham so I know their style of barbeque and I like it alot.
