Forgive my ignorance here but I have just became a proud owner of a few free sanke kegs that I plan on converting to a keggle to increase my batch sizes. Before I do this I was wondering if my current burner is able to bring a 10 gallon to a boil? This is my burner.

Single 60,000 BTU burner.

That's a Camp Chef 60k btu burner and yes it will handle a 10 gallon boil. Camp Chef is very conservative with their btu ratings, so take the 60k with a grain of salt. There are faster burners available, but they will also use a lot more propane. This one will do the job just fine.
