If it were me I'd buy this one here.

OUTDOOR GOURMET TWO-BURNER GAS COOKER CART

It's cheaper and has better burners. I'm of the opinion that the jet burners concentrate the heat to much, and from what I hear they are not very efficient.

Are there dimensions listed for either of those? I wonder if they are big enough to support keggles?

I know for sure the Academy one will support keggles, have a few club members that have the exact stands.

I do not know the exact btus it puts out, but it is a hi pressure regulator and again from experience with club members it has no troubles boiling a full keggle either.

I also came across this guy...

Bayou Classic Double Gas Burner Cajun Cooking Station : BBQ Guys

I like it because it folds up for easy compact storage! A little spendier than the others.
If anyone has any experience with any of these stand units, please comment here!

opinion

Stay away, i bought a king kooker triple burner from Cabelas. i was a POS welds looked like bird Sh_t and it was lop sided. It wouldnt sit level. Missing parts and striped bolts and nuts...just a big pile.

i had returned it the very next day..

if your going to spend hundreds of dollars spend wisely go for things that can be
modified ..IE i bought three bayou classics w/legs about 6 months ago in hope of building a brew rig... when i was ready to make a rig i used the burners , cut the legs off and welded them in the stand..

If I was in texas, I'd buy the academy one. If I wasn't, I'd buy the Bayou CLassic one. The king cooker just looks, unstable.
