You want to upgrade to a 15 gallon rubbermaid MT? You wouldnt be able to use this with a cooler MT. It is designed for direct fired vessels.
The manual shows the ignition switch using both a bg14 and a cup style burner, but states several times it can be used with any burner. If I was to get 1 (or 2) I would be using it with BG12's.
After reading through the manul, it seems they designed this thing to work with all different systems. I am really sold on it. Like OneHoppyGuy says above, after you factor in the prices for parts (including misc stuff like wiring, box, connectors, etc) the price is quite decent, especially it being Blichmann.
