Default A deal?

Hey guys, take a look at this....

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?id=0020041515911a&navCount=0&podId=002004 1&parentId=cat20122&masterpathid=&navAction=jump&c mCat=perf&catalogCode=QT&rid=0180101070502&parentT ype=index&indexId=cat20122

looks like a pretty good deal to me.. I dont know if that spigot would be good for transfering wort... but nevertheless, it looks like a good pot with a burner for pretty cheap..

Too bad they don't specify how powerful the burner is.

The pot is plenty big for full-volume extract brewing. It's on the verge of being too small for AG brewing, though.

As for the price.... you should be able to find turkey fryer set-ups that have a burner and 7.5 gallon Al pot for much less than $70 (I've seen them for $35 or so on sale).

I don't recall seeing many fryer pots with spigots on them, but unless you consider the sipgot (which is GREAT for transferring wort) to be worth $30, you can probably find a better deal.

I would actually say the pot is barely big enough for full volume. I use a 32QT pot and I have to be uber-vigilant to avoid boilovers. It will work, but it will be tight.

If you have a Costco close by, they have a 36qt all stainless Bayou Classic kit for ~$80.
