My $15 solution to putting a keggle on top of my SP10
 
I know there are several versions of this floating around, but I figured one more couldn't hurt :D

I didn't plan far enough ahead with my brew gear to consider that the SP10 I picked up on Amazon for cheap wouldn't support a keggle, but I finally got around to cutting a whole in the top of the thing, and put it to use this winter, so that meant I either needed another burner, or I needed to solve the problem with the one I had. The latter was more SWMBO-friendly

For few dollars worth of angle-iron, some bolts, and a lot of cursing, it's wicked sturdy. Not the prettiest work I've ever done, but it does the job. More in-depth writeup on my blog if anyone is interested, and of course, feel free to ask questions here :mug:

Ingenuity, the mother of invention! :mug:

...how much weight can that stand...stand?

Thats pretty awesome. I really should do something like this instead of my "laythe grill grate on top, line up the flat spots and and hope the keggle doesnt tilt enough to fall over" current process.

Quite a lot. The extensions are actually more sturdy than the legs at this point. I tested it by standing on the outside corners of the extensions with buckets of water in each hand. I feel a lot better with 12+ gallons of boiling wort on top of this than I would with just a grill grate, not to say others haven't had success with that approach. I'm clumsy and like to eliminate chances of me spilling a pot of wort :drunk:

Nice! I need to do something like this in the next couple days.

How long were each of the sides? Think I could get away with using slotted steel:

Seems the OP’s pic is no longer available…?

Check his link. He's has pictures there.

It looks like a good idea. BassBeer, I like your idea of the slotted steel. It's probably less expensive and easier to work with. Off to Lowes!
