Default Outdoor burner that is stove height and durable

Looking for one that is stove/countertop height, fairly controllable, and will hold up being left outside full time, with no maintenance.

May just get the side burner for my grill, but it is about $400. Would like to avoid if anything good is out there for less $$$.

Essentially want something to use with regular kitchen pans, not a turkey fryer, have plenty of those. No gas available at my house, and then panning to possibly move in the next 1-2 years, so don’t want to drop a bunch of $$$ putting in a LP range.

You'll probably have to have something built to meet your height requirement.

You want a low pressure burner, and most of those "stock" stoves seem to be tabletop size.

Plenty of table top outdoor burners online for cheap. Those with integrated tables seem to be the high output type.


No matter what you use you need a cover over the burner.

Anyone have an idea what the output rating in a normal residential stove burner is (large eyes). Too much output is as much of an issue as anything on the turkey fryer burners.

A Blackstone outdoor stove is what you seek. It probably needs to be covered when you are not using it. Can also be used as a grill if you like.

I see their grittles. Do they make a 2 burner non-grittle version?

I think they make only a single burner stove, non-griddle version.

Maybe, tell us a little more about your plans for this stove, and someone here will have an idea for you?

Just want something sitting next to the grill to use for smoky high heat cooking that is also versatile for traditional stovetop applications. Patio is right off the kitchen. No gas or hood in the house, but very possibly moving out of the house fairly soon, so trying to avoid a kitchen remodel. It’s fine like it is, just doesn’t suit my cooking style. Preferably it would be solid stainless as to avoid covering/maintenance.

The side burner available for my grill (Wilmington Grill) is 20k btu, and solid stainless, but is $400.

I have a Camp Chef double burner out on my deck. I'd say it's a little lower than a stove height but close. I keep a cover on it. It's been outside for about a year now but it's under the soffit so it's kind of covered. I think they're $100-150. If it's windy it's tough to keep it lit on lower power.

I have been looking for something as well. The side burner on a grill isnt hot enough to easily fry fish. I have been using my homebrew stand but thats way overkill. There are some commercial electric units out there but id rather have propane. I havent found anything im thrilled with yet.

That's where I'm at. I did find an old cast iron Wilmington grill burner digging around in the garage. Not stainless, but they are essentially hooded rather than open to the top, so it should be ok left out in the weather. I may stick an upside down container of some sort to keep the rain off of it. Think I may put it on one of my current burner stands to see if it throws enough heat before I drop $400 on the side burner. I like the idea of the integrated burner in stainless, but hate the idea of dropping $400 for it. Like many home brewers, my earliest burner was a bayou classic with some homemade leg extensions. May just put the Wilmington grill burner in that stand, with taller leg extensions for something temporary. Not pretty, but should work fine.

Current situation is ugly as hell, and has to be moved in and out of the garage, and the control sucks
