Default 32 qt Turkey Fryer DEAL

I don't know if this is allowed here - but I thought I would post a Turkey Fryer deal that I found and picked up 1 for myself.

Bass Pro Shop: $39 (normally $79)

Sure you can post that and it's appreciated. Seems like a good deal. However, you might have to dissable the timer function. Use the search function as this is a rather common nuisance with these units.

seems like a good deal. Though the pot size might be limiting for some folks who want to do larger boils. Sam's Club has good prices on larger pots, if you have a sam's club card that is. If I had seen this three weeks ago, I would be ordering this. However, I have the SP10 from Amazon.com and a 40qt al pot from sam's. Total price for me was $80.

Thanks for the insight. I'm in the market so I'll have to do some research.

So have you tried this yet? I have read the description on the website and it sounds like the timer could just be a timer and not a device that shuts off the burner.

Did my first brew in it Saturday. Worked well. Sturdy legs heavy for it size. Standard aluminum pot. I liked the "rail" adds a bit of safety to the pot on the stand... but I only installed 1 of the 2 rails.

Had one boil over - because I fumbled getting to the regulator as I saw the boil coming up, but I caulk that up to inexperience with the setup.

I guess my only con would be the timer. YES it does shut off the burner after 20mins, and it was annoying. BUT it definitely can be disabled.

I am going to try to disable it soon. If so, I will post results.

Thanks for the update. Man, I really hate being a dumb American who is too stupid to operate a burner without a timer to turn it off for me. But having someone take care of us seems to be what many want.
