I bought 5 sticks of the 1-5/8 X 1-5/8 and 1 stick of the 1-5/8 X 13/16. I built the structural parts out of the big stuff, and I used the one stick of the smaller dimension to hold my gas lines, etc.

Instead of guessing, why not read post #6?

Yeah, I think the square 1 5/8" works best for this application. Allows you to match things up better. I went with the 12ga and it is sturdy as can be, and not overly heavy. I can slide it about my garage with ease. Using the thinner 13/16" stuff though is a good idea for mounting and misc things and in fact I might do that when I hard mount my burners. The spreadsheet for my build is a few posts down on the first page. Lists the specs for everything I used.

Nice. I half assed mine, and went with a combo of strut and flat bar for the top and 4x4s for the legs, but after seeing this I wish I just did the whole thing in strut. My thinking was that this would get the job done until I decided to build and weld up a nice steel one.

anyone have shipping problems with the recommended strutchannelfittings.com? Not sure what happened but I ordered on the 19th and got the confirmation email on the 20th. Didnt even think about it over the weekend. Decided to check the tracking late Monday (24th) and its not even in the UPS system. I know with the holidays things are slow, but if they really notified ups it was ready to pickup on Thursday, hard to believe I cant track it.
