Found this thread searching for what burner I should upgrade to....
My birthday present is to order what I want for my birthday.
I am also trying to get the most out of the almighty dollar...as usual...and I sorta hate my turkey fryer burners.
So, from what I gather:
Blichmann burner is really well built, and efficient. $150
Bayou Classic KAB4/6 is nice, but not as efficient. $90/$100 respectively.
All the other, smaller burners are not ideal. $30-50 for most turkey fryer burners.
The idea I have, is to buy burners that I can set on the floor for now. Then down the road, have my buddy build me a brew stand similar to the Ruby Street rig that I can then put the burners into. This is why I am leaning toward the cheaper KAB4. I will "engineer" my stand to direct the heat to the kettle. For now, I am brewing in the garage, and totally out of the wind, so the Blichmann may or may not do a whole lot for me.... (and no, I don't desire the Top Tier stand, and I know the Blichmann will bolt up to it).
Correct me if I am wrong?
