No concern of the SS wire shelf sagging under heat and weight?

Sure...that's probably the biggest engineering problem I'm facing. We'll see what happens...it's 316SS and frickin solid. It may be wire style shelving, but the wires are 1/4" each....and there's a lot of them. Experience with my last rig showed me that 2 pieces of 1/8" angle iron were more than strong enough to support a full keg getting blasted by a banjo burner. Plan B is to slide a few pieces of angle under the top shelf, if necessary.

Is this what you were thinking?

That will probably work too...but I'd be careful putting heat on something like that. This cart I'm using is really well built, SS through and through, no coatings/platings etc. I had a hell of a time drilling through the bars....you can really tell the difference between brass, mild steel, etc. and SS. It's a pretty hard metal. I imagine a cart like this would be well out of my price range if bought new.

Nice Steve. I'm still stealing your single tier wooden rig setup idea for my own electric setup.

You'll have a lot easier time with it if it's electric (assuming you know how to wire everything). A lot of my headscratching came from mounting burners and putting in heatshields.

Nice rig... I'll be building one of those very similar to that very soon ( SWMBO is gone over Christmas week ).

Ed, it's pretty sweet. I'm happy I got it....I was worried about the cold break, but I just turned out one of my best IPA's ever; leaving the pellets free in the kettle (no bags) and crash cooling it all later. I just clogged the hell out of it with whole hops, but I just blasted those out and it's good as new. That'd never happen on a plate chiller. It cools fast, looks great, kinda pricey, but I think it's worth it if you're looking at a long-term piece of gear to put in a stand, etc.
