Wow.  You work fast.  I like the built-in wind guards for the burners.

Thanks, guys!  Here are some shots with the casters on.

I had the welder slot the burner shrouds so that I could fine tune the burner height (hurricane burners).  Next on the list will be installing the burners and the gas plumbing.  I guess I need to read up on gas plumbing.   ;)

Looks great!  Good luck with the plumbing.  Get some good pipe dope!
I've consumed all of my home brew and still can't relax!  Now what!

I'm just about done with the stand.  I've spent the better part of the last two weekends working on the gas plumbing, some copper sweating (for a WIC), and wiring pump switches.

Here's a video I made today...
