best/cheapest place to get a burner?
 
Already have the pot, just looking for a good propane burner. Where does everyone recommend to get one from? and which one? thanks

Check Lowe's or Home Depot for a turkey fryer kit. You'll still need to buy the tank, unless you have one already from a gas grill.

It may not be the ABSOLUTE cheapest (I've seen turkey friers for $40), but this is an excellent burner (plenty strong, lots of output, burns clean, easy to control the flame) for $50.

I'm looking for a burner too. So far the cheapest way does seem to be to buy a turkey fryer. The pot, if not needed can easily be used for something else.

I'm looking at probably an SQ14 anyone here have any problems with those?

Edit. That looks like one right above me! Simultaneous posting! LOL

Nah, I beat you by a minute!

The Patio Stove is great, I actually like it better than the Banjo cooker. It's plenty strong enough to hold a keggle, and while I only do 5 gallon batches, I've heard from others that it's strong and powerful enough for 10 gallons. I see it as an equipment purchase than might be marginally more expensive than a turkey frier, but that you won't feel the need to replace down the line. It's pretty quiet, too - the "jet" burners on most turket friers are wicked loud.

I got a bayou country burner on amazon.com for around $35. I'd check there too.

I just picked up an SQ14 at ACE hardware for $50. If your local store doesn't have any in stock, you can order online and have it shipped to the store for free. Mine came in a week later.

You got a model number for the banjo?

I swore that they had discountinued it, though. I'm pretty sure mine is the KAB4. It's nice, but it's none too big for a keg (it fits, but don't hit it), and it doesn't burn quite as cleanly.

This is awesome...

They sure figured out who was buying these things!
