If I were consistently doing 1bbl batches, yea I would want something a bit more powerful. For right now though, it will work just fine for the occasional 1bbl. Once I throw some insulation on the BK, I'm sure I'll be able to get a much better boil. Plus the garage is a bit chili, i'm sure summer will bring more vigorous boils.
