I've been using a Bayou burner SP-10 for the last several brews and I'm tickled pink with the way puts out. That is, when there is no wind anyway. The unit comes with a built in *cough* "windscreen" *cough* but it does't block anything gustier than a mosquito fart. Pondering this on my last brew day I realized I was sitting atop an empty 30gal steel grease drum I rescued from the scrap bin at work. The drum is wide enough, and my pot (7gal) narrow enough, that I could cut slits to accommodate the burners' legs and still keep 1 to 1 1/2 inches of clearance the full circumfrence for the pot. maybe add a hole on the leeward side big enough to light the burner through. Not only cure any windy day problems but add better heating for the winter months..
Thoughts? Suggestions? Snide remarks?
