cabela's 3 burner cooker
I am putting together an ag setup(on a budget) and saw this cooker at my local cabela'shttp://cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templa...l&N=4887&Nty=1

wouldn't this work just as well as the more expensive sculptures if i hooked up a couple of pumps between my liquor/mash/brew kettles? my concern is the burners may to close together.

has anyone used this setup? Thanks.

I don't think it has enough space between the burners for keggles or big pots to fit on all 3 of them.

+1 on the space, But im concerned on the Btu's seems kinda low.

Same as I was gonna say. 54,000 sounds really low. I just bought a KA Bayou at 156,000 I know some guys use upwards of 185K to 200+K for AG

-1 on not enough heat. The 54,000BTU will work great. Thats what I use and it does not take long at all to get a crazy-out-of-control boil going on with a full keggle on there.

Space may be an issue. Email them to ask for some specs, I think you need about 15.5 inches of space per keggle.

That does look like an awesome deal. It would be a very easy and cheap way to start a really nice stand.

i'd say the BTUs are fine as well. I have a 60k BTU burner that gets me heated up real quick

if it's big enough and hot enough, it would probably work. i have a friend with one of those that works wonders, but it's not cabelas...it's a monster.

I got one of these. Lots of room, no bending :)

While you where on the site did you see the price of stainless pots? 80 Qts $134! Not bad at all!
