The stand is about 14" tall, and it will easily accomodate most pots that are up to 10 or so gallons. Has a cast iron burner. I actually put the wrong btu's earlier. It is actually 54k btu's. It's a king kooker model #1205. It's under $50 and comes with some other stuff in the box. I haven't determined how efficient it is. I'll have to wait and see how many batches I get out of a propane tank.
