I've got the SQ14 too, and last brewday I had problems getting ~7 gallons boiling. Could have easily been the wind though.

I had 7.5 gallons in an 8 gallon pot at a vigorous boil (yeah I was using Fermcap-S... magical stuff) with the gas about 1/4 of the way open. This was in my enclosed patio.

I would rig up a wind shield of some sort. It will save you money in fuel costs, and time to get it up to a boil.

That is the one I have but with an upgraded 20 psi regulator. It brings 14.5 gallons of water to boil (from about 55 degrees) in an hour.

So if I just grab some metal trays, drill some holes on them and tie them to the burner stand with a coathanger, that'll work?

TIA
BTW - I am selling two of my burners for a lot less expensive than you would pay new. I can meet you in DC... I live in NOVA.

They are listed in the classified:

I also have a keggle with all the trimmings if you are interested. Just no lid.

Yeah, that will work- you can also just use a sheet of metal flashing that comes up and covers partway up the pot, for even better efficiency. It will cause the heat to flow up the sides of the pot better instead of getting blown away. There are some threads around here somewhere with pics.
