This looks to be the more beer kettle with weldless fittings. Seems like a decent option... http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003EWLTHY?vs=1

I dont think optimization was discussed on my end. I think Blichmann did a great job on their kettles. I was and am blown away at how thin they really are that's all. When I build systems that are going to have a 70-80K BTU burner under it. I choose tri clad. I like that I have NEVER burned the bottom of a Tri Clad kettle. I cant say that about a single layer bottom kettle. So when I build a propane system that aren't kegs the boil kettle get tri clad. I haven't ever had a customer say to me they wish they didn't get a Tri Clad kettle. I cant say that about other kettles.
Dont get me wrong There are some KILLER kettles out there that aren't tri clad and all of them will work great! I was simply posting my input and my experience on the topic, that's all.

Totally fine for sure, depending on the heat source. Dont over power the kettle and you will be fine. Big deal? Nope not at all.
