Well I lifted the burner up by almost 2 inches and gave it another go. It brought 7 gallons to a rolling boil in about 35 min. Still not great but much better. I'll use it that way for now and order a new burner later.

Sounds like a great plan. And in the meantime, I'm glad your time to boil is less.

I think tomorrow I'll do some cutting and give it another go. Or maybe just push the support for the burner up a bit, I could bend it or use some shims under it.

thanks for the replies.
I had the same issue with mine. I cut the ring down so the bigger pot sits on the 3 supports. I also used the metal I cut to make some extra support for the bigger pot.. I'll go take a photo and post it for you..

Here it is...

This photo shows me pointing to the ring being flush to the 3 support loops..


This one shows me pointing to the extra supports I installed for the bigger pot..

I also plan on raising the burner this weekend like you did...
