Default Jet burner - any reason why this wouldn't work?

Ok - so I found this burner:

9" diameter, 23 jets, LP gas and claimed 175,000 btu for $22.00.

http://www.topfoodservice.com/Mercha...roduct_Count=4

Compared to More Beer's 8" diameter, 21 jet LP gas, claimed 92,000 btu for $64.00.


Am I missing something here? Is there any reason I wouldn't get the $22 one (except that its made in China and my kid might get lead poisoning if she chews on it)???

Nope. That's a great price - snag it.

If you decide to get this burner, keep us updated on what the end result is. I would be interested in knowing how it works.

I use those exact burners and I'm happy with them.

Well, I ordered 3 of them. Adding a pilot is another $5.60 per burner. I'll keep y'all updated but it might be a while before they're up and running...
