Anyone use the BG12 burner (bayou classic sq14) for 10 gallon batches?
I have been looking into outfitting the BG12 burner into my burner stand. It is the same burner that is used in the bayou classic SQ14 burner and stand. I was wondering if anyone uses this burner for 10 gallon batches and if so approximately how long does it take to boil? Thanks.

50,000 BTU's? Yeesh. That's kinda small. Bringing 10 gallons to boil with only 50,000 BTU's would definitely take you a while. If I were you, I'd keep looking.

I've got a 180k burner and a 210k burner for my 10 gallon batches. The 210 is a bit of overkill, but the 180 is nice.

I guess I'll have to check with the wife on the BG14...its quite the jump in price though from about $15 for the BG12 to $45 for the BG14

I own the SQ14 and it takes me ~ 55 minutes to bring 10+ gallons to a boil.

I have a BG12 and it takes about 45min to get 12 gallons to a boil. I am looking at getting the BG14.

as has been said, it takes a while but it can be done. I have roughly 30 ten gallon batches on my sq14. That being said, I just graduated to bg14's and like them a lot better
