Any advice on types/locations for a fair price. Largest pot I have is 10 gallons for all grain brewing. (For 5 gallons)

I got the circle one from Bayou Classic. S10 or something. Worked amazing. Found it on Amazon for under $50. Boiled 6.5+ gallons very quick.

Bayou SQ14... Fits a keggle perfectly and I can do 12-13 gallons boils on it.

I also have the SQ14; works like a champ, heats up the liquid rapidly, and gives me 4-5 batches per 20 lb. cylinder.

I agree with Rico as far as the propane usage. It is a VERY efficient burner. You really don't need a 300k BTU burner unless you like going to the hardware store for a new tank every other batch.
