Default how many BTUs?

Hey dudes. How many BTUs do you need for an outdoor grill that will bring 3-4 gallons to a boil pretty quick? Thanks.

I think that most folks here are using something in the order of the 55,000 btu turkey burners. They will easily bring 3-4 gallons to a pretty quick boil.

How quick is pretty quick?

Most stovetop ng burners have a high range of 15,000 - 16,000 Btu and my Charbroil propane grill has a side burner rated at approx. the same. Both can boil that much water within 20-30 minutes. The turkey cooker is probably your best bet for the speed you seek and afterwards it can make a mean deep fried turkey to boot.
