Default Propane Burner

Where do people recommend getting there propane burner and what kind.

This one looks pretty good and seems to be a good price.

Are you just replacing the burner component in an existing burner? If not then you need to buy a full burner. The whole Bayou classic series is affordable. I think I have the SP10 and it works great for me.

I am building a stand and just need the burner. I am not finding a lot of places that sell just the burner.

yeah man, you need the whole stove unless you're building a stand or something. I like this one a bit better than the round base that is associated with the burner you posted.

ah I see, stand it is.

I know that Brew magic stands use an almost identical burner to the one you posted. You'll also need a gas line, black pipe to plumb (optional I guess) and a regulator.

edit-

I feel like I need to share that I was a little frustrated with that burner a couple years ago...I'm sure others have had wild success with them though.

I believe that is the burner that is my Bayou Classic SP10. Seems like a pretty good deal to me.

How noisy is the burner? I mostly do 5 gallon batches but will do some 10. I also direct fire my mash tun. Any problems with scotching? Maybe this one will be better for the mas tun. http://www.amazon.com/Bayou-Classic-BG14-Banjo-Burner/dp/B0009JXYTG/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1340576908&sr=8-3&keywords=KAB4+Banjo+cooker

I see some information that BTU is determined by the regulator. I would think it would be determined by both, but have not thought about it.

BTUs are a maximum possible rating. So you need to keep in mind that between the regulator and burner you'll get the lesser of the two ratings.

I ordered two BG10. I am sure they will do fine.
