Default Pressure cooker outdoor burner suggestions?

I'm slowly building my steam controlled mash system. I have a 16 qt pressure cooker by Presto.

Any recommendations on a portable electric burner for using this outside? I will of course run it to a GFCI. I'm not wanting to use propane burner for safety reasons (is that fear unfounded?)

i.e.

Thanks

I know the one I linked is small, I just wanted to reference what I was thinking of.

I use a propane burner.

As long as you watch the pressure gauge and the relief valve works, I wouldn't worry about it.

Once my gauge gets close to the blow off pressure, 20 psi, I crack the valve to start the steam flow. The pressure stays around 10 psi with a moderate flame and an open valve.
