You will need to adjust the intake and exhaust valves to eliminate the backfiring. This is common to all small engines. I suggest every two years under normal use to adjust them. .008 thousands is standard on most Briggs engines although I would Google your model number on the web to find out for sure. The valves have a lock not that simply loosen so the nut below that can be turned for the clearance to gap.
The valve cover has screws that remove to gain access to these valves. Silicone sealer can be use to make a good deal for a gasket as well

Does it do this when you start it or turn it off? If yes to either one you must install a gas chock in the fuel line. It's a valve. You turn the valve off and let the engine run out of gas. When starting you turn it on obviously. By draining the carburetor of gas it won't overload anymore and backfire when turned on/of f.

Take off the valve covers and check the valve lash. @ tdc on compression stroke then same on exhaust stroke the clearance between the rocker and valve should only be .001 to.003 in.Carefully adjust to this tolerance,may cure your problem. seems this is a common problem.

pipes at the cyl head and also the plastic runners to the carb for leaks.
