I am looking into building my own natural gas burner for an outdoor fire pit. I have seen some burners on Custom steel and stainless steel fireplace pipe burners for Glassel fireplaces and fire pits. and they just look like your normal black pipe and connectors.

Is it really this easy? What size hole do I drill for the flame? Do I need to worry about air flow mixtures or pressures anywhere? Do I use yellow tape for the joints or something else? Or anything else I am missing?

Thanks so much!

Pretty much

Do I need to worry about air flow mixtures or pressures anywhere? Absolutely.

Thanks for the "answers.". :-)

So I guess my next questions are, how do I check my pressure and btu's? And how do I ensure proper air/fuel mixture?

Thank in advance for more detailed support. :-)

It's not rocket science. In fact it's all a very old (but often dangerous) technology.
But I'm not inclined to help you blow up your home.

That's called "engineering" or even design... but mostly it's about adapting known data.
Do your homework to at least KNOW what questions to ask.
Then get some LOCAL experienced help with answering them.
