I've been running water through my mash tun all day just to make it doesn't leak and my SS braid is all cleaned out......I'm half tempted to start tonight but SWMBO has me in the bathroom with joint compound fixing the walls so she can paint....bah.
You can joint compound while you're mashing! =)

Sweet! Mine arrived from Amazon today. Whoo Hoo! I made a YouTube video of it. I'll post it as soon as it's done processing. That puppy rocks!

Update: Here's my video

Give it a while to process. Youtube takes an hour some times.

I think it is a 10" burner. Here's what the Bayou Class folks say

Quote:
The Kick A Banjo Outdoor Propane Stove is one of the hottest high pressure propane stoves on the market. This high pressure propane stove includes a 30 PSI regulator kit. This propane stove, with the 30 PSI regulator and the large round stove element, kicks out the minimum of 210,000 BTUs. This stove will boil a 120 quart stock pot full of water in no time! (Perfect for those Cajuns that want to play with the big boys!) It has a 17" x 17" cooking surface which helps maximize its strong stable design. Perfect for large batch cooking, backyards, camps, RVs, tailgating, scouting and more.
They forgot to add Brewing Beer to the list

Well, I just did my mash-in and everything went super-smoothly (except for my beagle constantly wanting to know what was in the cooler) Hit my target of 154F on the nose. Now the hardest part. The waiting...

roughly 15-20 min on the boil. I start my burner while Im sparging so it's pretty fast. the best piece of equip I own, besides the wort chiller.

Yeah, it took 10-20 mins for me to get a full boil going. Much faster than before. In my book it's already paid for itself.
