Boiling Pot Burner...

    OK, so I got a turkey fryer. Propane. 36 quart.
    I modified it to try and use Natural Gas. Sorta worked, but wanted my pot to be afraid, very afraid.
    So I bought a Natural Gas wok burner that blasts out 125,000 BTU of heat.
    Holy mackerel! Blasts out heat now.
    The ring around the burner (Sheet metal) gets red hot, and getting close is uncomfortable.
    Mission accomplished!

    I'm still testing, but about 4 gallons was at a roiling boil in ~15 minutes.

    I prefer a little more power/heat....88 Magnum-880,000 BTU.:D

    Nothing wrong with a little wok action! I've been meaning to get like a 10 jet version of one of these to light my charcoal chimney super fast. The one I found *should* fit almost perfectly in the bottom of a standard chimney.

    Pretty cool!
    I have an outdoor propane fired wok with a jet burner.
    It will get the bottom of the wok red hot in about 1 minute.
    Never tried boiling water with it though.

    Holy Mackerel motocrash.
    Mine has flames liking all around up the sides as it is.
    What do you put on that pizza sized burner?

    If you ever want to do a "Boil" Al, you should try your wok burner.
    Blasts out a bunch of heat.

    My 36 quart was more than plenty big enough for our group. 6 gallons total of water, a 5 gallon bucket of crab halves, plus tatos, corn cobs, onions,
    When everybody quits because they are full, then takes as much home as they want, and there is still more left.... o_O

    Mine was originally for propane. But I have Natural Gas at my Barby anyway, so converted it.
