But then theres that whole cutting to size as well... I just like the thought of changing the profile around with bolts...
Brewpastor is using sign posts (like for stop signs and such) picked up at a city salvage yard or auction. I asked him a similar question a few months ago. Like you, I like the idea of being able to just bolt everything together. Adjustments would be much easier as well.
Janx has an all wood three tier system. You don't attach the burners right to the wooden frame, but build something that looks like steps. You just put a turkey fryer on each platform. He doesn't have a turkey fryer under his mash tun.
Here is what I'm talking about. Janx says his looks similar to this:
He has different more stable burners, as would if I decide to go with wood.
Here is a link to the plans to make one like this:http://www.xb-70.com/beer/3_tier/
