Default Cool Burner

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. http://www.costco.com 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.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

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?
http://www.agrisupplyco.com/cgi-bin/...295.000000&l=1 - 170K BTU for $8.

here's the catalog page: http://www.agri-supply.com/catalog/page11.htm

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):
http://www.agrisupplyco.com/cgi-bin/...322.000000&l=1 ($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)
