What diameter are those heat shields? 12.5"

Also do you worry about the arms that you have going out into the middle taking on too much stress from a brew put with 12-15 gallons of liquid in it? Since the arms don't connect to anything but the heatshield, I didn't know if they were at risk? I assume you know this to not be an issue or you wouldn't do it.

The reason I ask is I am in the blueprint stage of a single-tier 3 burner setup. I am using SS 1.5" square tube at 16 gauge. I cannot afford thicker wall. I am trying to think of a way of mounting 8.5" SS heat shields to the underside of the top of the stand. If I could just use arms like yours going out so I could weld the heat shields to the arms.... But now I wonder if 1.5" 16 gauge tubing could handle the stress load. The alternative is using angle braces in the corners that go out far enough to have a diagonal distance of 8.5". But that's much more steel.

Sorry to go off-topic. But you seems to know your stuff and are god-like in your skills.

The arms on this build are much shorter than mine and you clould jump up and down on then and not move them. The heat sheilds are the size of a hurrican burner and are 16 ga ss. The tubing is 1.5x1.5 eighth wall but I dont think you would have any problem with 16ga I welded one for schweaty on this site out of 16ga. Think about making a single or two tier I think you will be happier with one of those I like the two tier because I like to run off with gravity.

Thanks Pat
