OH!!! THAT'S SEXY!

Darn! I gotta get one! Thanks!

It's sexy, but I'm telling you, as someone who owns both... I'll take the SQ-14.

I use SQ-14s as well... bought 3 of them on Amazon for $40 ea. (I think, and this was 1.5 years ago) with Free Supersaver Shipping. They're great, I have no problems with them. They fit keggles perfectly. My typical pre-boil volume is 14.5 gallons and it gets to boiling fairly quickly.

This is a good spot for 60,000BTU for $80. I don't own it yet, but it is one of my next purchases. I look at it like this: My keggle on my turkey frier has trouble maintaining a boil if there is any sort of breeze. At 15,000 BTU I can understand why.

So I started using the Camp Chef 30,000BTU 3 burner stove ($190). Works great, except that the keg doesn't really fit on top with the wind screen.

EDIT: looks to me like kegs would sit on top of this burner, not around the cooking surface. Might be a bit wobbly, judging by the measurements I just took

You know what, after all is said and done I don't like my last post at all. I will leave it for posterity sake though.

Has anyone had any experience with a jet burner? Like the SP-1, for $36 it seems like a steal.

Do you need to be mobile? If you will be brewing at home, can you pipe into natural gas? If so, you don't have to worry about running out of fuel. If you do a little fabricating with angle iron, this burner could get things boiling for about any size batch:
