Increase BTU output of gas grill

I have a Char-Broil outdoor stovetop. It is basically a self- contained side-burner that puts out a max of 21,000 BTU when set to high. However, it is not powerful enough to boil 7-8 gallons of water, at least not while the temperature outside is below 50. Does anyone know if it might be possible to increase the BTU output somehow? I was thinking if I can adjust the regulator somehow to allow more propane through this might do it, but I don't know if the burner is also a restricting factor. Or maybe I could purchase a different regulator and splice it into the hoseline in place of the existing one? Any ideas, or if this is impossible??? Thank you.

Might be easier and possibly cheaper to buy a turkey fryer. The darned things are like jet engines. That's what I used during the Great Power Outage of '03 (and we had a "boil water" advisory for several days after the power came back on).

Boil the water inside on the range?
It's not real "outdoor cooking," but who's to know?

Anything involving boiling water is not real outdoor cooking anyway. To get that much water boilng fast, the turkey fryer is ideal. Adjusting regulators is asking for potential problems. It is not so simple as orifices must be changed, air/fuel ratio adjusted, etc.

Bass Pro Shop has an outdoor fryer, for $29.00; excluding the tank. The sale shows up now and then.

First of all stop watching it... never boils if you do...8^)
Seriously, put a lid on the pot. the side burner should do the trick with a 21,000 btu output even with an outside temp of 50

Actually I can't put the lid on. This is for making beer and I need quite a bit of water to evaporate in the process, as well as a by- product that makes for a funky taste if not boiled off. Thanks anyway though. looks like I'll be shopping for the turkey fryer and putting this on Craigslist.
