What I noticed was that there was a large amount of condensation on the outside of the kettle until the kettle got quite warm, and the evaporation of this condensation severely reduced the rate of warming. Simply wiping the condensation off made a noticeable difference.
Next time, I shall start with aboput 1 pint in the kettle, and then add more water as it warms up. This should (I hope) prevent the cooling effects of evaporating condensation.

but, as you lauter into the brew kettle, your liquor should be about 160-170 from the sparge process......

But it will get your mash and sparge water up to temp much quicker.

I have this turkey fryer set up with a 10 gal., thick-walled, heavy-duty aluminum brewpot. I normally collect 7 gal. of wort (batch sparge) into my pot. Mash temp is usually ~150-155oF; sparging ~173oF. I usually get to a rolling boil/hot break in about 20-25 mins.

But I don't crank the propane burner way up to '11'! I have it at about 80% b/c I'm a very cautious person.

I just crank it...if the turkey fryer glows cherry red that's even better. Usually it sounds like I'm on the deck of an aircraft carrier (or what I imagine it might sound like).

I get about 15 min to boil going full bore on my burner ( will have to look up the number but it is 166,000 BTU aproxx) after the mash out pn 12 gal of wort. Bigger is better but I go through some propane.

I have the same set up. but a 68qt (8.5gal) thick walled aluminum kettle. It seems a bit wider than some so it sits on the outer higher ring ratehr than the inside part (make sense?)
Edit: 34qt not 68. (still 8.5Gal)

What PSI is your regulator? My Jet burner came with a 10psi regulator. I got burner brand new but missing the anything stating the BTU's. It was from a place that resells overstock form places like costco.

I'm from the UK and I've got a 6 gallon Swan electric tea urn. It's got a 3kW plate element and takes about 10mins per gallon to heat from cold.
