I did a good bit of asking around about that and it sounds like 4-5" is the right height for these burners. One is lower because for now I need to use it as my dirct fired MT burner and it's hard to throttle down. So I moved it down to try and lower the heat. I'm going to experiment with this height, but for now that's what I'm starting with.

Awesome! You're going to love it. So easy and flexible for future changes, and super sturdy. I'm really happy with it so far.

Have you had any problems from the galvanizing burning off?

Well, other than the fact that it does burn off, no. Had a inaugural brew session on it last night. Pretty fun stuff. Got the wiring done up just in time. Not perfect, but did the job. Also first time on house NG! Those burners are amazing. My buddy and I were in awe at how fast they headed up the mash water, boil, etc. 4" below the pot seems about perfect. They just crank out the heat. All in all it went well last night.

Nice! I'm going to head to Lowes/HD and see about something like this for myself.

Tell us if you find the corner angles like the OP used.

Here are some pics from the opening brew night on the rig. Real happy with the direct fired mash. With these burners I was worried they would create too much heat even on the lowest setting. Not so. When the temp hit 150 I would kick on the burners as low as I could keep it, and with a good recirc flow, it would take about 5 mins for it to get up to 154. Nice even temp rise. Otherwise, pretty uneventful. Next up is the Honeywell 8200 gas valve with standing pilot so I can actually use the output from my Auber controller.
