Hey everyone, I'm thinking about moving away from stovetop brewing. I'm looking into some outdoor propane stoves now. What brand/model stoves do you use? Thanks, nick

i guess the only difference is this is high pressure? is it better? worse? all opinions welcome

thanks,

The only challenge with that burner is that it's really loud.

I just picked up a King Kooker double burner propane stove - brewed with it for the first time on Saturday - it's perfect. Each burner is 54,000 BTU, and it's solidly built - brought my wort to a boil quickly.



Amazon.com: King Kooker CS29 30-Inch Two-Burner Outdoor Cook Stove: Patio, Lawn & Garden

Watch the price, it fluctuates daily - I picked mine up for 89 bucks with Prime 2-day shipping.

I need to find a good propane cooker.. I;ve looked at the bayou classics but they seem to get mixed reviews, including that they sound like a jet engine.. not sure I want to listen to that for 90 min.

I'll mostly be doing 5 gallon batches, but will occasionally do a 10 gallon batch and I'd like to keep the cooker under $100 if possible as my wife is already giving me a hard time about what I'm spending on HB kit. The king kooker double burner kit could work if the price dips under $100 again.. what other cookers come highly recommended?

Where other burners sound like a jet engine, mine are stealth. With the design, they get my keggle up to a boil quickly too. IMO, worth the cost to get them.
