boiling questions

>I'd like to give boiling rough turned bowls a try...to see if and how it works in comparison to other methods. However, I don't live out in the country where I can set up a "mash" cooker and have at it. And "the boss" isn't gonna be overjoyed with me messing up her pans, stove and kitchen.

Can anyone give me some suggestions for a compact heat source that could be used in a small shop? (bearing in mind fumes, etc..)

Or out on the porch or deck? Would the "barbie" and ordinary charcoal work?

How about a fancy-shmancy propane grill?

Are there any small "commercial" electric or propane "cooktops" that would work? Would an electric cooktop provide enough btu's for, let's say, a five gallon "crab" pot??

Does bringing a pot to boil and keeping it there for three or four hours consume a lot of propane?

thanks....
