I have that exact same burner. Didn't know it was rated 125K BTUs. From one site I saw somewhere, it is listed at 55K. Amazon.com, I think. I hope it is 125K and not 55K. That would rock! The Bayou Classic (who makes the things) website is here:
Oddly enough, they don't list the output. It might be worth giving them a call to ask and see before ordering it. If it's the same output as the morebeer one, and it looks like it is from the pictures, they sell it for less money. 70 something dollars if I remember correctly.
Then you can get the same burner (in a non stainless steel version) from Home Depot for 50 dollars. At least that is what I have read here lately a couple of times.
The one sold by Academy Sports is very similar. The two differeces that I have noticed, is that the frame is welded a little differently and it doesn't have the Bayou Classic name plate. The difference with the frame, is that the sides are a little higher on the BC to keep the pot from sliding off. The Academy model is flush at the top with the pot supports. No biggie.
The Sabco kettles are nice. You won't need any plasma work done on them. The top is already cut out.
