Outdoor Kitchen Side Burner

edited 8:31AM in EggHead Forum
I'm in the market for an outdoor "side burner" to mount in a cooking station.
They make drop in and slide in models and then many brands as well.
Any advice on model (not trying to break the bank) or style.
I would rather stay propane and not run nat gas lines.
Thanks in advance.
Thank you,

Galveston Texas

    I looked into a built in propane burner and found they are pretty expensive...really like the idea of it, but also don't want to give up the counterspace...we got a couple of these and they are serving us very well..and they get very hot...

    Darian I have been looking at the ele one on sale at Williams-Sonoma. This is a high output deal and has like $200 off now.
    Have not pulled the trigger, but looking very close.

    Hey Wess if they are serving you well you should let your thoughts be known on Amazon to balance out the current one star rating - is the fuel available anywhere?

    I agree with Wess. Unless you plan to use the burner a lot these little burners are perfect. They will heat a full size skillet to searing temps.

    The good thing is that you can use them anywhere.

    I bought mine a few years ago at a restaurant supply store for about $20. Came with a tank of gas and a storage case. I've never taken it to Eggfests but I really should. That's why I bought it.

    Worth every 1 Cent coin.

    I don't own that exact one..was just using it as an example...I can get the fuel at RD but it is available other places as well..

    I bought my second one at RD and have used it at Waldorf eggfest several times for breakfast...we used to use them on the boat all the time..

    I have one like Wess linked to - that's a good price. Out here the fuel canisters are easily found in the stores. Love it and ended up buying 5 more with fuel. One for the each of the kids.

    Hope your doing well Kent.....

    Thanks Wess, I'm just slower (was slow before). I am hoping I can get the lung capacity back so I don't have to rely on or lug around the o2 tanks.

    I have the bullet by bull. Sold at lowes. Its a drop in. Sits right next to my weber s-660 on the outdoor kitchen. It will cook anything. Boil water. Sautee onions. anything needed it can handle. Good luck with the recover gramps.
  • Photo Egg,

    I did hours and hours of research on high end gas grills and double drop in side burners before moving to Thailand. It im my opinion that if you are going to put the drop in burner in a permanent outdoor kitchen don't scrimp on money. I went with a Fire Magic Grill along with their double side burner. Fire Magic has one of the best warranties in the industry. My Echelon 730 is well built and should last me until I can't grill anymore. I wanted something that would last since I shipped it to Thailand and parts are not going to be easy to get. I still worry from time to time actually how long my egg will last, cracking seems to happen out of the blue according to some posts and sometimes for no real apparent reason. BTW, Fire Magic makes a cast iron griddle to fit over the double burner, great for pancakes, eggs, I am hungary and need to eat breakfast.

    Bottom line go with a top of the line burner, F.M., Lynx, Viking, DCS. If you want reviews on grills try

    My 2 cents and I am not trying to start a feud between the Egg and high end gas grills.

    i would look into somethging like this, you will have less problems if you can put it away. i use a huge burner from an old turkey fryer with a stand, mostly for lobster boils so it gets a fair amount of use, if i dont store it inside, the nozzle and plates rust and bugs get inside the nozzle creating webs etc and it needs constant attention. heres a small movable table top unit
