Customer Q&A Ask a Question

My business is at a high elevation; does this change anything when I order gas cooking equipment?
Many gas equipment manufacturers need to make adjustments to the equipment so it operates correctly at elevations over 2,000 feet. Sometimes we can special order from the manufacturer and have your cooking equipment delivered ready-to-go, but in cases where your unit is in stock and waiting to ship, you’ll need to have a qualified service technician come to your location and alter your unit at the time of installation so that it is compatible with a higher elevation. Contact our Special Orders team prior to placing your order, and we will let you know what will work best for the equipment you are planning to purchase.
What regulators are available for use with this product?
This model comes standard with a 5 PSI regulator. If you need a replacement regulator or if you would like a 10 PSI regulator to increase burner performance, those items can be found by clicking the "Looking for Replacements" banner on this product page.
Why would the paint on my burner/range come off after the first use?
This is normal for painted outdoor ranges, During initial start-up and first use, you may experience some burn-in of the range that includes unpleasant fumes and discoloration of the burner. This process is typical, and after 10-15 minutes the unit will be ready for use.

Fryer worked great. Be sure to read how to clean aluminum pans. It’ll go a long way for making the product last. After one session of cooking wings, the paint peeled off the stand. I’m not sure if that’s supposed to happen. A bit disappointed. I kept the temp of the oil at 350, so that’s normal use. It didn’t really effect the use of the fryer. Just aesthetics.


Thank you for your review, Ramon! We are sorry this Backyard Pro 18 Qt. Dual Basket Fryer / Fish Cooker - 55,000 BTU has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!

This makes amazing fried foods it is very fast to heat to temp warm weather 8 mins, in the cold it takes 12 mins. For outside use only it very messy but I’m a chef, so for the price it’s a good unit.
