Hello foodies. I'm shopping for an outdoor grill and/or wok unit and most seem to come at 10,000btu's while several more heavy duty outputs at 54,000btu's, advertised.

There seem to be a majority of companies that make 10,000btu units which tend to be nicer in terms of design and branding. It's also smaller to make it more packable for transport. The 54,000btu ones are larger and usually much heavier as stationary units.

I'd like to ask the community, what will 54,000btu offer cooks differently than a 10,000btu unit can other than cooking some foods quicker? And, are there any recipes that require a higher temperature to cook with; other than wok cooking?

Pro style home ranges offer around 15,000 to 25,000btu's. I discovered that my home range unit operate between 7,000 to 10,000btu while home ovens are around 16,000-17,000btu's.

54,000btu burners remind me of restaurant wok style burners but I believe those can run upwards of 100,000btu's. Thank you.
