I did this yesterday with BassBeer's idea of slotted steel. $15 total at Lowes. It worked great and it was easy. Took me about 15 minutes.

Thanks for the ideas, guys!

I used slotted steel, but couldn't get a good balance with the square so I went with a triangle format. Works great!

Each side was around 14.25". The worst part of the project was the ring isn't a perfect circle, so it's kind of a pain to get everything mounted up. I cut things to fit as I went, so it's not the nicest looking, but still rock solid many batches later. I don't have permission to edit the original post, so here's a replacement pic. As mentioned, there are more on my blog

I ran into the same problem when I made one for my burner.

I ended up cutting them all the same, bolting them together and then forcing the ring to be round . The ring has some give so it can be done. It was a pain but it fits really tight now and is very solid!

I never liked the idea of using a grill grate just laid on the top so this was the perfect alternative.

I was never comfortable with the grill-grate, either. If I have 12 gallons of boiling liquid, I want that pot to be as stable as possible, and this wasn't any more expensive than buying an extra grate.
