I just finished modifying a 15.5 gallon sanke to a boil kettle. The turkey frier burner and stand are not beefy enough or wide enough to support the kettle safely. I do not have any welding equipment nor the experiance to use it. Is there a weldless alternative? Has any one been in the boat i'm in?

If you're needing to use steel, drill and bolt a cube together to fit around your turkey frier burner stand. I've seen many 3-tier setups made out of 2x4's too.

Good luck,
Wild

You sure the stand won't hold the weight?
If it does, you can use a round charcoal grill grate, just set it over the burner. Its what I do right now. Works like a charm.

I use modular industrial shelving from Lowe's. I like the grill grate idea as I'm reconfiguring for the new ring burner and need something that won't block the outer edge of the ring.
