Yeah I would agree with lehr.. a little thicker would be nicer for sure. I think these will work for the time being but my plans are to have some stainless ones made in a thicker material.

Here's the poor mans version..

Yours looks way more perty. It'll work good though. The shroud improved heat retention & boil time.

Nice job!

These all look nice but Jknapp’s version seems like it might fit my budget…maybe.

Jknapp, what did you use? It kind of looks like a galvanized bucket cut to fit…?

looks like spiral round air ducting. Temp seems low enough on the outside to leave the zinc/galvanized coating intact.

I did mine cheap and easy. They are stainless Dog Bowls.

Nice job lehr. Have you had a chance to fire up your burners yet. I’m curious because I did a similar design a while back and had a hard time getting the burner exhaust out. It was choking the flame once the kettle was on.

I use kegs so the skirts let it exhaust the hot air out.
Her it is done.

Espi.. Great work... Do you have measurements or a template for the mounting holes? Also, did you ever mount these and if so how did you with teh screen attached? I am in the middle of a single tier stand and am at the Banjo burner mount junction.. I love your windscreen and I am struggling with mounting to stand with screens attached.

I went back and forth over making them or buying them. I ended up buying the Brewers Hardware pieces and they are really nice piece for $26/ea.
