Some of the more high-end electric and gas stovetop elements can handle bigger volumes, but not many.

If you plan on expanding in the future, you may want to think about an outdoor burner.
I have considered an outdoor burner, but my high BTU burner on my gas kitchen range gets 7 gallons to boil in about 30-45 minutes. I'm sure I can do it faster with a propane setup, but I'm willing to put up with a slower boil time and be in a clean kitchen.

All thanks for the advice. I am still researching but i am going with 8 to 10 gallon pot.

Update I just bought a 10 gallon SS pot. I am glad I got the bigger size
