We wrote our first Bullet Burner Review a couple of years ago, motivated by our customers’ great feedback and the photos of their fire pits, or more specifically, their fire pits flames.
Over the past twelve months, the Bullet Burner range has increased considerably, and we thought it was time to update our Bullet Burner Review.
For those of you not already familiar with the Bullet Burner, let’s start at the beginning.
These amazing-looking burners are individually handcrafted in California by The Outdoor Plus company from locally sourced materials and utilizing their patented flame technology.
The Outdoor Plus company is exceptionally proud of its ‘Made in America’ credentials, especially when many of its competitors have moved production overseas.
The original product range consisted of a Linear, an ‘H’ burner, and the Triple ‘S’ burner. These were all manufactured from Brass, making them extremely durable, rust and weather-resistant, and every unit has a Lifetime Warranty.
Flat Flame Technology
At the core of every successful fire pit project is the flame. A beautifully built fire pit with an inadequate flame does not look very impressive.
The patented Flat Flame Technology compresses Gas Flow through the Bullet Orifice incorporating oxygen, creating a taller, cleaner flame.
Compared to a ‘standard’ design burner of equal BTU rating, a Bullet Burner creates a flame that is about twice the height. Two to three-foot flames are the norm.
Each burner is individually assembled from precision machined components under the highest standards of quality control.
Water infiltration is an issue for all fire pit burner manufacturers, and The Outdoor Plus have recently developed an innovative solution to this common problem.
They drill a hole in the burner ring’s underside to allow any water that has entered the ring to drain out. Of course, during use, gas will escape via the drain hole and ignite, creating a flame.
A heat shield located opposite the drain hole redirects the flame upwards, preventing it from forming a hot spot and potentially damaging the fire pit pan.
This attention to detail is an excellent example of the quality of design and fabrication that goes into every bullet burner.
Matching a burner’s BTU rating to the amount of available gas supply is the secret to getting the best flame for Bullet Burners and Standard Burners alike.
If you are not sure how to select your burner’s rating to match the available gas supply, we cover this in detail in our article ‘How To Successfully Build A Gas Fire Pit Part 1.‘
The New Range of Bullet Burner Products
Over the past twelve months, The Outdoor Plus has considerably increased the Bullet Burners’ range of products.
The hugely popular three original all brass models are still available, but some design changes have been incorporated into the latest models.
The most obvious is using stainless steel instead of Brass for the main gas ring, although the Patented Gas Orifice is from Brass.
Using Stainless Steel as an alternative to Brass reduces these burners’ cost but still provides a very durable, long-lasting product.
This new range of burners is supplied with the same Lifetime Warranty that applies to the original all Brass Bullet Burners.
The second difference is in the BTU rating of this new range. There is a broader range of BTU ratings, so it is easier to get the best match between your burner to your available gas supply, which is the art of getting the best flame from your burner.
There are also five configurations in the new range that are not available in the original all Brass versions:
- Circular Burners
- Square Burners
- Switchback Burners
- Rectangular Burners
- Racetrack Burners
All Bullet Burners manufactured with the Stainless Steel and Brass Orifice combination are handcrafted to order in California, and supplied with a Lifetime Warranty.
Bullet Burners are ideal for retrofitting to an existing fire pit or to be the powerhouse of a new project.
