I havent had any problems with this. Banjo burners are insane, you can only turn them up part of the way before the flame on a 15g kettle is blasting up the sides anyway.....I can run them just as high as I could in the original Bayou Classic cooking stand that one of them came in.
I am planning on adding wind-shields around the burners and I'm wondering if that will restrict them too much...but I guess I'll just have to try it and see.
By the way, for anyone thinking about building a stand like this (or like any of the other cool designs on this site), just do it. It makes your brewday so much easier and your process so much more repeatable. My stand is taken apart in the garage right now while I polish the frame. I thought about brewing this weekend anyway with the old cooler, camp burner, etc......yeah screw that. I'll wait until I have this back together. SO much easier.
