I would choose a kettle over a keggle every time if they are of the same size. There are a couple of things I don't like about keggles, although I do have and use one. Keggles are much heavier than most kettles making them somewhat more cumbersome to move around and clean. The bottom rim retains heat long after flame out. I spray water on the rim at flame out to speed the chilling process. This is only practical if you are brewing outside or have a floor drain in your brewing area. The curved bottom of a keggle hinders even heat distribution which may or may not be an issue depending on the system and whether you care about that or not. It's not a big deal. On the plus side for keggles is that they are very, very rugged and nearly indestructable. They are also inexpensive to buy and fairly easy to modify for brewing use.
