Default How far should the burner be from the keggle?

I am building a frame for a banjo burner and want to know if there is a recommended distance that the burner should be from the bottom of the keggle? I assume that it's similar to a generic kitchen stove?

I asked the same thing recently, and the general concensus was 3 1/2 to 4 inches. I'll be modifying my stand to get them closer.

Default Too far

That is farther away than my burner is to the keggle.

There are threads here that have timed the boils with different distances. The burner should be further away for flat bottomed pots and closer for keggles.

Since you are still in the building process I would make the burner height adjustable.

I agree with this, that way if you decide to go to or from keggles or pots, you have options!

.... You sir, get an A+ in ingenuity. That's such a great way to make a tower setup at a low cost lol.

The object that the burner is attached to is a plate lid from a restaurant. All stainless
