Default 44 qt turkey Fryer Kettle Question

How many inches from the bottom of the kettle is the 5.5 gallon mark on a 44 Qt SS Bayou Classic turkey fryer? I need to know pretty soon.

I take it you are sparging?

I only have the 30 qt one so my measurments wouldn't help you.

I'm also poor at math as I know given enough time I could figure it out on paper.

The ID is about the same as an Igloo cooler (13 inches), so I measured it out to about 10-11 inches from the bottom. I compared it with a pre-measured, marked bucket of a slightly smaller ID and it seemed comparable.

Default Well

Without a measurement of your pot, inside radius and height, its not possible to tell you where that mark is.

I looked up your pot on the web, nobody gives dimensions for it. Otherwise you should be able to calculate that.

To be honest, why don't you just do it the practical and easy way. Pour 5.5 gallons of water into the pot and get out your measure tape. Easy, reliable, and fairly fast.

Clearly I am stupid today. Its an 11 gallon pot. 5.5 gallons is exactly half the pot. Sorry about that.

Depends. Is it 44 qts to the very top, or 44 qt's to the top ring (giving about 1.5" of extra space)??

Well, with my fryer (granted, electric), the measurement was for as muchy liquid as could possibly fit in there, i.e. all the way to the rim (why market it as 44 qt when you could market 48?). If you target your final boil volume as halfway up, you'll be close enough and know enough to hone in more precisely next time.
