I have been looking for a new burner to replace one of my weak ones in my 3 tier setup, and i saw this at costco. It is not really what i need, but it seems like a pretty good deal, and if you built a system around 1 or 2 of them, you could do some serious brewing. Maybe two 10 gallons batches at a time, if you could fit 2 kegs on it.

I think I am just going to buy a cheap 55k btu burner for what i need, and the best deal i can find is about $40 at target. Let me know if anyone knows of a better deal.

MOD EDIT: Fixed yer link fer ya.

The hurricane burner is 60,000 BTU $32, but the big advantage is the huge number of flame holes. Makes it really good for your mash tun.

I've been looking at one of these for $119 at Academy in Austin, TX

Dual 190,000-BTU high-pressure burners and this thing can support 15.5 gallon keggles without a problem. This thing and a pump and I'll be in business.

How about this? - 170K BTU for $8.

here's the catalog page:

If you only need a replacement there you go. If you need a hose too it looks like you can pick one up for $15 (6' long w/needle valve & regulator)

Or if you need a burner & a stand w/out a hose (since its a replacement): ($25)

That should beat paying $50 for something from target or that thing you don't need from costco (agrisupply has the costco model too for $99)
