That's the Bayou Classic KAB6. Yes, it fits a keggle very nicely. The burner we have up top (Bayou Classic SP10) had to have extra metal welded onto the top of it to fit our keggle HLT safely.
Unfortunately, the KAB6's 10" burner underneath really outputs a lot of heat to the sides of the keggle, which will fry your valve and sight glass easily if you don't have some serious heat shielding going on. I've used that burner for about five brews now and I'm still having some problems nailing down the proper heat setting on it so I can reliably hit my target volumes. You turn that thing on full blast and you'll have a rolling boil like you've never seen before.
My brew partner and I are thinking of just getting a 25 gallon pot which should alleviate the heat-to-the-sides issue quite a bit. And we'll be able to brew more beer at once, of course.
