I finally melted my sight glass with the flames from my burner, so I figured it was time for a heat shield solution. I didn't really want to make heat shields for the valve, sight glass, and thermometer, so I ended up making a heat shield for the burner out of some light gauge steel. I started with a piece of 18in x 6in, and scored the metal so I could bend it easily. The bends in it fit perfectly around the front edge of the burner. The heat shield doesn't cover the banjo burner at all, but it creates a good enough lip to cover the edge of the pot and the stuff installed on it.

On to the pics!

With the 15gal bayou pot on it. Everything is protected now
