Thanks for the replies guys. I went ahead and hooked it up to test it out and see how long it would tak to get roughly 8 gallons of water to a boil. It fired up no problem and had a solid flame going once I got use to the oxygen regulator. I'm actually really pleased with it. It got the water to boil in about 35-40 mins. And you're right JJL, it lost most of the paint that was directly over the burner after the first use even though it says, "Unlike most competing models, this burner is coated with high temperature paint, and it will not come off with the very first use like other models." Oh well, I'm pleased with it and can't wait to do my first brew on it this sunday.
