Default Butane burner : how much BTU?

I decided to let the idea of using propane inside and opted to go with butane (much safer). How many BTU do I need to do 5 gals BIAB batch on a 8 gallons pot?

I am thinking about this : http://www.amazon.com/Iwatani-Corpor.../dp/B00522F2R2

I would think you'd go through a lot of butane cannisters to brew with this.

If you want to brew inside, look at a heat stick. They had a 1,000 watt one on homebrewfinds for about $70.
