Default Bayou SQ14 vs SP10 Burner

I am new to brewing, have done about 3 batches so far. I have found that my kitchen stovetop is not big enough, I am getting a brown ring around the range. I want to move to outdoor brewing with a propane burner. I am new so I dont want anything too crazy, I read alot about Bayou Classic being a good brand. What do you think about the SP10 or SQ14? I dont need anything fancy, just want to get water to a boil fast, I am still on extract brewing with some steeping beforehand.

Well there is definitely a couple things to consider before you purchase a cooker. You may think that you may not need that big or powerful of a cooker since you are still doing extract batches but don't make the same mistake I did. I bought a 13" bayou classic cooker which produced 55,000 btu. Now my problem came when moving to all grain and my bigger kettle was too large for the 13" rim. My kettle is 16 3/4" in diameter and when I try cooking with it I can't turn it up all the way or else it becomes dangerous because it shoots flames out the bottom close to the valve. Well that was my experience.

I haved used both of these and prefer to use the sq14 due to having 4 legs for stability of holding up a keggle.
