I just bought one of these . Can not beat that price . It is the re-branded bayou classic banjo KAB4 I think but came about 25 bucks cheaper . $67.99 and I think 18.95 for shipping . Here in Wichita there is no place to buy a decent anything . Any good stuff must be ordered . So if you can find this in a store 68 bucks is a good buy for sure .

Just a word of advice . Menards sells a cheap 41K burner for about 35 bucks . It burns badly with a yellow flame i.e. not hot , should be good and blue . Leaves black soot all over the bottom of the pot and takes at least an hour and 15 minutes to bring 8 gallons of hot wort to boil and then will not boil it strong .

Reason: fixed wrong info

This burner is great . Boils quickly after you figure out how to adjust the oxygen for the flame . Just crank it up and then turn the air adjuster until the flame is nice and blue . This thing is super heavy duty not like the banjo burners or others . The legs on this are 1/2 inch in diameter , twice that of others . It is very heavy but worth the extra work to move it around . I really like it . Do not think there is a pot that this could not hold up.

something wrong there . I paid 18.95 which I thought was very good for a 35 pound burner .
What did you order ? Was it big ? Maybe the box size matters .

EDIT : I jsut re ordered the burner at 67.99 and got ground shipping for 19.72

Reason: update info

I got a shipping quote of $28 for this burner and stand at the price of $68. Not sure why the shipping is more to Iowa than it is to Kansas.

another note on that burner is that the legs are very solid as they are bent in a way to hold weight and not just welded to the ring on the burner but bent all the way back up like a paper clip and welded to the top part of the leg . No way this will cave in .

So do you use this for 5 or 10 gallon size brews? I would want to use this with my 15 gallon keggle.

I just put in your zip code and it gave me 23.54 . Still more than here .
If you know anyone with a business you can send it to it gives 18.60 . They ship to business cheaper . Perhaps you can send it to your place of work if you have a nice employer.

I teach at a public school so I doubt that shipping to my work would make my boss very happy unless I could prove that it is something our science lab needs.

If using this burner, how many brew sessions do you roughly get out of a 20 lb propane tank? I know it will depend on the size of the brew session being 5 or 10 gallons.
