So I'm about to take on building a 1 barrel system with the help of my father and my co brewer. Plus the help of my great friends. I'm building this stand out of 2"x2" steel ( didn't go stainless, wanted to but to much money) with two 10" banjo burners for the HLT and boil kettle. I have ordered a 1 barrel system from stout tanks with Herms coil and fermenter which should be here in early January. Still acquiring parts and ideas as I go. Any pointers, tips, ideas and advice is more than welcome. Here is some pics of today's start of welding the stand. Not done yet, hopefully next week we can finish and be ready for paint. Still not sure of the parts needed to control these burners with automation using propane. Thanks for looking.

Just have to smooth out the welds and attach casters and leveling rods. Thanks to my pops who came from Arizona to help me with the build.

I'm at the point of getting burners for this bad boy and I'm not sure if I want to go with a 23 tip jet burner or the 10" banjo burner. I use the banjo now and it works good for fifteen to twenty gallon boils. I have no experience with the jet burners, do they have good propane efficiency compared to the banjo? Maybe some one can give me some insight on this? Sorry if it was posted somewhere on here but I figured I would ask. Cheers
