lbm, I would think about putting a concrete "paving" stone or something underneath that burner, just my opinion.

not following ya. Are you talking about on my Brutus? What is the function of the concrete block? To raise it?

I think he was talking about yeastmaster's gravity fed wood system.

 ;) I assumed he was talking about my system too.  If I had a welder I would have built something out of steel but I have woodworking tools so that is what I went with.  I really don't have a problem with the burner.  The vast majority of the heat is directed upwards so there isn't much heat under the burner myself.  I do make sure that I don't have the burner too close to the tier that supports the mash tun.  At some point I will probably add a heat shield to it.
