Probably not. It appears to be severely underpowered. Here's the one you want IMO:

I have three burners (each a different type) and the SQ-14 is by far my favorite. IMO, it's the best all around burner for the typical home brewer. It has plenty of power, has excellent flame level control and it burns efficiently. Good value at $49.95

THANK YOU ALL! Since SWMBO kicked me off the stove burners (which were working decent), I have to get outside with a burner. Just wanted to give my gratitude where it's very due. Went round and round in trying to figure out what burner I wanted to get for a 5-10g setup, and finally got myself over here to read up a bit. SQ-14 should be perfect from what I can see in other's posts. Everyone's comments here helped a great deal, and I am ready to make windshield even, as soon as it arrives! $49.97 at amazon is the place too, with the free shipping; best I could find after looking around most of the afternoon.

I was originally headed toward the KAB6 ($100 shipped @ebay if anyone needs), but really don't think I need it at all and would probably just be burning out my propane quicker without reason. So, the SQ-14 is now on the way!

Can I somehow connect my existing 10PSI propane regulator to this? I have a turkey fryer that takes too long to boil. In fact, I'm waiting right now and am getting tired of it.

How did you mount this to a stand? I'm not looking for a complicated brew stand, just something simple.

Thats the same burner as the one used in the SQ-14. I have the SQ-14 and it works great (with a 10 PSI regulator - just make sure you have the right orifice (high pressure). I also have an SP-10 that works well too, though the SQ-14 is a little more controllable.

How long is it taking your turkey fryer to boil? What brand? Any half-way decent fryer should boil 5-7 gallons no problem.

The 10 psi regulator that came with my fryer was too small. I have a 50 psi regulator now and can get all of the 170,000 BTUs out of it.

I am surprised everyone was linking agri supply and did not link this http://www.agrisupply.com/banjo-burn...82/cn/5400000/ This is one heck of a burner. I use just the burner in my setup and this thing is great.

thats double the price of the bg14 and if I am not mistaken they are the same burner are they not?

but if you need a stand and regulator might as well get that banjo burner instead
