Default Outdoor burners?

I have been looking for a way to start doing my brewing outdoors and need a good propane burner, does anyone have any recommendations on a good burner that they have had success with? Thanks for the help!

I just ordered the SQ14 from home depot for $50 shipped to my door. I've never used it, but its one of the more popular burners for homebrew. The SP10 is the same price and well liked as well, but there was some iffy feedback regarding the regulator so I decided on the SQ14.

Around here, propane burners are common garage sale items.

I picked up mine for $10-$15 each and they have been working for years.

I bought the SP-10 and used it for the first time this weekend. The reviewers all recommended burning off the paint for 20-30 minutes before using on the brew. I followed their advice and was glad I did. A lot of fumes, ash and paint flakes flying around that could have landed in the pot. After that I brewed an 8 gallon IPA with a 90 minute boil and it worked great!

I've been using a Blackman burner for over two years and it s still like new. I highly recommend them. They are an investment, but will last a lifetime.

+++1 on the Blichmann. QUIET& gets 8 gal from 60 to boiling in 20-25 min. Easy to control your boil too.

I'm still burning ash off of mine after 16+ brew days and its starting to rust.

I have bought two Craigslisted Turkey Fryers to get me outdoors over the past eight years. I gave the first away (no problems), and the second is going strong after a year of monthly use. If you are into lo-tech brewing, I'd say that scheme works fine. The 7 gallon pots that come with them are useful too (especially if you ever want to really fry a Turkey).
