Jay - when you first posted the burner, I looked on YouTube - there's a few demonstrations of its use there... while nice, I don't see much difference in the actual burner as compared to mine though. You've used both - is the burner the same 'made in China' cast iron stuff, or different. Same size? Jet holes/alignments different? What makes it quieter and mo' bettah' burnin'?

The central burner unit may be similar to some others out there but it is much better than the traditional turkey burner I was using. The body (legs, pot stays, wind guard, ect. is all stainless steel so no rust. It seems to operate at a much lower propane pressure so it is much quieter than the turkey fryer burners. There is a bunch of info on the Blichmann site http://www.blichmannengineering.com/...d_modular.html

This is what I was using and what I have seen in many of the cheaper turkey fryers out there. The Blichmann burner is much larger in diameter with multiple jets.

Don't know why I keep wanting to call it "camp-mor" when it is "Camp Chef"
I'll have to go back and see - the innerwebz sez there's 30k and 60k burners... looks like the Blichmann is 72k BTU's. I'm thinkin' mine are rated 60k BTU, which might be 'optimistic' but in the ballpark. Mebbe' time for an upgrade...

It would be a race to see who could finish their beer before the propane canister ran out.

Probably the same burner element as the Blichmann. Keep in mind that $30 leaves you short a regulator, hose, orifice, and any sort of stand. If you are handy with a welder and a drill you can probably adapt it to a stand or make a new one.

Alright I love beer just added strawberries to a ale last night now just need to gather the patience to sit on it until it is ready.
I will get my rig up on smug mug so you guys can take a look. I use 2 keg kettles a cooler and a homemade imerssion chiller with a pump.
I started all grain and only bottle when I need to travel with it. I am just getting started with lagers so I am still a noob when it comes to brewing but it is alot of fun.
I found that keeping it simple and not sweating the details to much works better for me a few degrees off one way or the other has not killed any of my beer yet .
Jim your set-up is sweet and thanks for starting this thread. Now I have found another thread to keep me from my work.
