Subscribed! This looks like a great idea once I get my keggle setup finished planning out.

This thread has been so inspirational that I decided to build my frame.

Drewski8986:

I like how your burners look. Would you mind sharing some close up pictures of your burner placement and shield? Is the design working well for you?

Also, shout out to Tom Gleason and Josh Hobson at G-P, LLC (strutchannelfittings). The have been very helpful and responsive to any questions I had about their products...

Thanks to all the contributors to this thread

Read this entire thread ,man it was a long one. What alot of great ideas, never seen any such thing before , it's pretty cool. I'm gonna hafta build me one.
I see there's a lot of concern with galv struts around the burner, if you'll look at drewski8986 build you'll see his burners are wrapped with flashing. This is a simple solution for a heat shield . SS flashing can be found online and local. When I start my build I will look at using this , I going all galv because of cost.
Any thoughts on this?

This is the rig on it's first run. Worked well but I do have some bugs to work out. At some point I'll put a post together on how I built this.

Looks sweet! This must be a good reason for this, and I'm sure I'm missing it, but I'm curious as to why you used fittings that are external to the strut versus internal where you can use the track system and locking nuts. It looks like in some locations you have internal, and external in other areas.

They make a few different sizes, and sell it in different materials. That is strut that is 1 5/8" wide by 13/16" tall. Not square 1 5/8" like most of us are using here on this thread. It can be used, but probably won't match up quite as well. HERE is the link to the square at HD.

i don't see any reason why you can't use the non-square version. it will be plenty strong.
