Default Yeah, Yeah another Bayou Classic Question

Can anyone comment on any of these Bayou Classic burners? Are they worth it, or should I look elsewhere?

Bayou Classic 3066A 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit

Bayou Classic SP1 Jet Cooker

Bayou Classic SP10 High-Pressure Outdoor Gas Cooker, Propane

Bayou Classic SQ14 Single Burner Outdoor Patio Stove

I've got some Christmas money to "burn" and I want to get out of the kitchen and get some full 5-gallon boils going.

The SP10 is great for large pots, but if you are going to use a keggle, get the sq14 as it's bigger and can handle the size.

A couple reviews mentioned "old" tanks versus "new" tanks and the fittings don't fit. I grill with charcoal/wood only, so I'm not up to speed on propane tanks, what are they talking about?

Can't say enough about the SQ-14. Even with the 10 psi regulator, I can get my 7.5 gallons of wort rolling in about 10 minutes on full blast. I used to boil off 1.5 gallons per hour before I toned it down a bit after the hot break.

I just got a SP-10 for $35 on Amazon w/ free shipping (It was a "scratch&dent" item, but was brand new). I haven't used it yet, but I can say the construction was much more sturdy than I expected. Can't wait to brew on it.

Also, my 40qt megapot fits perfectly on it. The megapot is very wide in diameter but sits perfectly on this bad boy.

My current burner, a Brinkman, took over an hour to get 7.9 gallons to a boil on Saturday. Granted, it was cold out (for Memphis: low 40s!), but I have had over 12 gallons going before. I ordered myself the SP10 while my wort was around 208 ...

I have the SQ14 and it can get 6.5 gallons to boil in 8-12 minutes and 11-12 gallons to boil in 15-20 minutes (depending on wort temp) Check out your local Ace HArdware....I had them order me one for $49.00. Would definitely recommend

I have an SP-10 and regularly boil 12-15 gal fast and without issue. By the way, that's with it barely turned up.

Sounds like I may go with the SP-10, since the price seems about right. Can I just use the same propane tanks you get at the hardware stores?

Also, has anyone used the "Sentry" thermostat regulator that Bayou Classic sells?
