Default Burner for 10G Batches ...

So I'm slowly upgrading to a 10 gallon system and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on burners. I'm contemplating building a brewstand. Any help would be appreciated.

a propane turkey fryer is the best option....they usually have pegs that are pointing up that help keep the kettle that comes with it from going anywhere...i just took them off with a grinder and it fits any kettle now

I've been very happy with the Blichmann Burners, but if you are on a budget a Banjo burner would suffice also.

+1 on the Blichmann Burner. Works great.

Thanks for the input all. I've been eying the Blichmann. A few weeks of OT and i'll be able to get one.

+1 on the Blichmann, the propane savings over time will pay for it.

My new rig has pair of low pressure 6" burners. One from Agri-Supply and one from Propane King. They both worked very nicely, today.

We got one of the Bayou Classic banjo burners with stand... we've been amazed at the raw output of it, as well as the efficiency. Blows the dinky little turkey fryer away. We do 12gal boils all the time... don't go through cans like we feel we ought to, for the staggering amount of beer we've been making.

It's truly amazing how quick it can bring 10 gal to boil. Kinda gotta keep a close eye on it to avoid overshooting, especially for mash-in water...

Probably using a pump...
