Side burner recommendation

Posted by bluehaven (My Page) on

I am looking for a side burner to put in our outdoor built-in kitchen. Looking for something more powerful than a 15,000BTU (heard from friends that a 15,000btu is not really good for blackening fish or frying outside). Any recommendation on one that you like that is also not way too expensive.

Not sure if this is an option for you but I bought my grill before side burners were in vogue and I often found myself needing another appliance to cook things off of the grill surface. Since my grill is near an electric outlet I bought an electric hot plate.

I know DCS has some that are 17,500 but that is the biggest btu side burner I have seen. Does 2,500 more BTUs make that much difference....id like to know.

They make power burners that put out more...like 60k btus but they are bigger single burner styles.

Just bought a Firemagic power burner, 60k BTUs, got lucky and found a floor model

Napoleon has an infra red side cart burner that will have no problem getting you to temperature and fast. Lynx has a built in side burner that goes to 46,000 BTU and a dual 15k side cart burner (crazy $ though).

I'm unsure what my DCS burner output is, however I used it for the first time yesterday and it boiied water more quickly than my DCS cooktop in the kitchen. Mine came free on a promo with the bbq, however yesterday was the first time I put it to the test. FYI it's a double sideburner.
