I'm looking for some input on mounting of the burners and venting of burner exhaust. I'll be using flat bottom kettles. I've seen a few different configurations for wind / heat shield mounting and kettle support. I've shown two different versions in the attached image.
The one on the left has the wind shield / burner mount located lower and has the shield mounted on bent brackets.
The one on the right has the wind shield / burner mount located higher and has the shield mounted on square tubing.
My thought is the version on the left leaves more room for exhaust gases to escape from under the pot.
Perhaps I'm over thinking this...but, any input would be appreciated.
