Chine Hole-In-The-Wall Range

Thread Starter 

What kind of a range do they use at the urban Chinese food place? Everytime I pass by, I see that they have like 12-14 inch high flame coming out, its like a flamethrower.

You can buy 80,000 btu standalone burners at an Asian food mart.  They attach to a propane tank.

The jet burner we use to boil crawfish is rated at 165,000 btu. Some are rated over 200,000. That's a lot of heat.

Are these setups safe to use in residential/home kitchens? I once witnessed someone using propane for a grill on the balcony on the 7th floor of the building, and the propane tank exploded that cause major damage to the balcony and to the room that was next to it.

We never, ever, ever, ever, ever use that burner anywhere near anything that's flammable. Where I live, open flames are prohibited within 10 feet of a building.
