I'd suggest adding a heat stick to help out the boil, and stay stovetop. It would really simplify things.

Yeah, having thought about it more after saying that, I can totally see how that would be really cool. You would have almost a complete outdoor 10 gallon set up for about a 100 dollars. Honestly, I would just get the 60 quart kettle because you know someday you're going to want to do more than 5 gallons, especially if you already have kegs.

I wasn't trying to be a downer, just confused. Seems awesome, brew on

Get the propane burner, you won't regret it. My Dark Star burner will boil 8 gallons of water faster than my stove can boil 4 gallons.

I didn't take it that way I should have explained it more in my original post. I appreciate all the help! I already have a 1/2bbl keg... thoughts on the 60qt kettle vs the 1/2 barrel keg?

Any reason you got that over the SQ14/SP10? I'm leaning towards the SQ14 cause of the square base and potential Keggle option... even if it is slower (more efficient!)

No, the only reason I got it was because Midwest had a promotion to buy one of their Imperial kits and you got the burner for free. Well, it was either that or vice versa. Either way I got a killer deal on it. It seems to be a good burner but so does the SQ14.
