This might fit that application, it would go in between the 2 pieces of strut so you would need to account for the thickness of the bracket

That fitting listed above is perfect I've never seen those before and you wouldn't have to drill with those. I don't think it goes between the strut but it will wrap around the corner to fit in the channel and have an L bracket to hold the other connecting piece

That is perfect. Thank you so much for finding that. I'll let you guys know how it goes when I get them.

Has anyone thought about painting theirs with high temperature paints, like stove paint? Those paints don't work for anything that's in direct contact with a flame, but obviously nobody's building theirs so that the strut has direct flame contact. I was looking at some of these high temperature paints, and they have tolerance to 1200F, which should be more than sufficient in this application.

You can paint but you have to use a certain type of paint. Check out post #40.

People are using strut with gas systems.

Thanks for all the great info in this thread! Awesome stuff!

I'm looking at building one, myself. I would like to use a pair of BG-14 burners; one for the HLT and one for the BK. This rig would allow easy hard plumbing of both gas and water on board with connects to the supplies.

Question: Have any of you used these Banjo Burners and, if so, how are you mounting them? Can you share a picture or two, please?
