Default What is the best Propane burner + amazon gift card

I've been doing AG batches for about a year now and normally have 7.5 gallons for a prebroil which has moved me out of the kitchen. I bought a Turkey fryer kit a few years ago on sale from Target for 15 dollars and it does ok for boiling, usually takes 30-40 minutes to bring 7.5g to a boil.
Good news is that I finally have a litAmazon gift card to get a new burner and I would like some opinions on what I should get. I don't think I will be doing 10 gallons batches for another 5 years because of space concerns and at that point I'll probably build a AG system. But for now I am just looking for something that works really well, doesn't eat up propane like crazy and will last a few years. ANY thoughts?

Thanks!

This is what I use http://www.amazon.com/Camp-Chef-SH-1...115694&sr=8-14. Perfect size for 5 gallons -- brewed 10 gallons on it yesterday. The extra height is nice for gravity transfers.

Got the Bayou Classic SP-10 from Amazon, used it the past 2.5 years without a hiccup. Works perfectly with my 30 qt SS pot for full boils.

I use the Bayou SQ-14, also - you can see a couple of pictures of it in action here http://www.singingboysbrewing.com/about.html

Bought mine at Amazon, too, and usually have 7 or 6.5 gallon batches.

Awesome! Thanks for all the replies, as each of these were the ones I was considering. Just need to read the Amazon reviews now. That sq14 is nice as it would fit keggles at some point and not eat up too much gas. I'll keep looking, let me know if you have more thoughts as most of you have already purchased these fine burners .

Thanks!

I would have thought that the Blichmann TopTier burner would be the "best:"

I think that's the same burner as the KAB4 or 6 in a different housing
