Default Which burner stand for keggle

I am looking at propane style burner and stand... a full keggle weighs about 100 pounds and I need something that can handle the weight without modification.

I bought this one this spring:

http://www.amazon.com/Bayou-Classic-.../dp/B0009JXYQ4

I got it for $49 from Ace hardware's website, with free shipping to a local store. So, that's a good price with shipping.

I second the SQ-14...solid stand and the burner is big enough to do 10 gallon batches. Actually, I upgraded to a bigger natural gas burner but I still use the same stand. It's a good buy.

I am looking to upgrade to the SQ14 but I see they have change the design. The new design appears to have the burner 4" or more from the bottom of the pot !!

Anyone ever modify the new SQ 14 to raise the burner? I would like to avoid any unnecessary equipment mods.

Which burned did you upgrade to as I will probably connect to NG. Did you have to modify the stand to allow the new burner to fit?

I modded it with a NG jet burner. It needs to be about 6" or more below the bottom of the kettle. My solution is FUGLY, but it works. View pictures at your own risk! Eventually, this will all go into a stand and that's why I didn't put a lot of effort into making it pretty.

Not sure about the make and model, but it is a 23-tip NG jet burner and I got it here: http://www.cpapc.com/store/23-Tip-Ro...as-P469C0.aspx

It accepts a 1/2" male NPT pipe, so I used a section of 1/2"x18" black pipe already threaded from Lowe's, along with a brass gas ball valve. Fair warning about this setup: some people have had trouble getting this burner to run clean, some people like me have had zero problems. I believe this has to do with inadequate gas pressure at the burner. If your attachment point to your house's natural gas is far away from your city connection, and/or the pipe is very small you may not have sufficient pressure to run this burner cleanly. If you have any doubt, go with the 10-tip burner which is more than adequate, or go with a Hurricane burner with the NG conversion kit from William's Brewing: http://www.williamsbrewing.com/HURRI...E_P2214C87.cfm
