Default Looking for an outside boiler solution

Is there anything like this that is cheaper? Comparable quality?

http://www.midwestsupplies.com/floor...ng-burner.html

Any other ideas?

Thanks.

I use a turkey fryer from homedepot, it came with a 30qt pot for $70. Works great for me.

EDIT: I did upgrade to a 10gal pot for my boil, and use the pot it came with for sparge water.

Used this one for a while before building my stand. Had no problems with a 10 gallon pot.

Cool thanks!

I also found this:

Pot and burner for $94


And then this:

$43.99


Question... does aluminum make a difference vs stainless?

LMAO... the very first comment for this "Turkey Fryer" says this:

This setup will get it done. You'll be able to boil 7+ gallons of wort with no issue. Be aware, however, that this is very lightweight aluminium. It is possible, but very sketchy, to mount a ball valve spigot and kettle screen but you will need reinforcement washers on each side. Even when empty, dropping this thing on a sharp surface (like the edge of the propane burner) would be enough to dent or puncture it. I use this in my primary all-grain setup, so it can be done.
