    Default All American Canner

    I can a lot of tomato juice each year and I am in the market for a 30
    qt All American Canner. This unit will hold 16 quart jars of tomato
    juice. It will probably weigh about 80 pounds when I fill it. I
    process them in my basement. Is there a heavy duty gas (natural or
    propane) or electric burner that will support such a weight?
    Thanks, Richard

    Look around for a "crawfish" propane burner. Mine holds an aluminum
    boiling pot that holds about 5 gallons of water and 20-30 lbs of
    crawfish at a time. Water weighs about 8.35 pounds per gallon so there's
    half your weight already. You can always ask at the hardware store or
    wherever you buy such burners. Mine has held up since 1992 and is still
    good. I did have to change the hose and propane connection when the
    trade moved to a different hookup.

    Some stores sell them as "turkey fryers."

    I have a Bayou Classic single burner propane stove that I use for
    large boiling jobs. It's similar to this one
    http://www.elitedeals.com/baclsibupast.html
    It'll handle a 30 qt. pot with ease.
    I'd recommend using it outdoors though, rather than in your basement.

    Can one easily regulate the heat with those burners?
    Does a pressure canner need a greater control of the heat?

    I hope theirs lots of windows in the basement. It's going to be a oven
    down there. When I can in the kitchen, I have all the windows and the
    door wall open and do it late at night. Or the air cranked up on max.

    Dan,
    My similar propane burner is easily adjustable for heat output. On
    full, sounds like a jet engine. One caveat - all of these burners
    create carbon monoxide which can be deadly. I use mine outdoors just
    to be safe.

    Do you think that they create more carbon monoxide than a normal
    propane stove or even a natural gas stove? If I can get an electric
    burner, my basement has several 220 outlets, I would do so. I can't
    find a reasonably priced one.

    My aunt had an entire canning kitchen set up in the basement, stove,
    refrigerator, sink, table and chairs, and cabinets. Don't know why she
    never put in a TV. LOL

    you need a stove for that canner, not a "burner" Buy it used at a yard
    sale or auction, maybe.

    I have decided to go all out and buy a natural gas cook top. Thanks
    for all the caveats.

    I think electric is tougher to fine tune to the sweet spot that keeps
    the pressure at just the right psi. The scientists tell us that if the
    psi drops below what it's supposed to be at you're supposed to start
    timing all over again.

    If you get an electric stove for your pressure canning, practice on a
    batch of water-filled jars and mark where the correct spot is on the
    burner knob to maintain the psi.

    JAT.

    Another caveat is that they can put out so much BTU that they get the
    canner up to operating temps faster than the approved processing tests.

    Since heat up and cool down are part of the process, to be safest
    one should bring the canner up to temp at the same rate one would on
    a stovetop.
