burners Here are some pics of my burners #1 is a 70k btu King Kooker casting orderd from Cajun Outdoor part #WKAF1, I have it under the kettle. And burner# 2 under the HLT came from a turkey fryer stand purchased from Gander Mountain 2 years ago, not really sure what the btu's are but will boil 10 Gallons with no problems.  
 
 
Here is a close-up of my recirculation coil inside the HLT (which is full of water) you can also see the thermometer guard on the 6" probe.
