I brew on a propane burner outside. I am not sure how many BTU's it puts out. What do you think?

6 gallons easy, but I'd wager 11 gallons is too much. I use a 10G Boilermaker on a 14k BTU NG kitchen stove and it gets 7+ gallons preboil boiling no problem. Granted, it's not a earth-shaking boil, but it's rolling.

My stove has 4 burners - two regular 9k BTU, one small low-btu one, and a high-output 14k BTU burner. I do my brewing on that one.
