In the market for a new pot so I can do full boils on a burner out doors. I found this one on ebay and it seems pretty heavy duty. I wouls like to drill and put a "spigot" on it. What do you guys think? http://cgi.ebay.com/35-QUART-HD-COMMERCIAL-GRADE-STAINLESS-STEEL-POT-LID_W0QQitemZ360215160813QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCookwa re_Bakeware?hash=item53de7f27ed
Thanks for your help!
you can't smoke that! but it does look chinese. it might hold 5 gallons. i dunno.
For $80 you could do a lot better with aluminum, that's mighty thin.
This is similar to what I use for 6 gallon batches, it's thick and heavy, same price.http://cgi.ebay.com/New-60-Qt-Aluminum-Commercial-Stock-pot-w-Lid-NSF_W0QQitemZ330361138814QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Def aultDomain_0?hash=item4ceb0eee7e
No boilovers and you can squeeze a double batch in.
A Blickmann is 0.0478 or 18Ga
This is 0.0394 thick or almost 19Ga
I would think this would be OK, I am thinking about picking one up but I am in the same boat as you are.
I bought one so we will see how well it worked. It was cheaper then any other equivalent SS pot then I could find. If not it's only money right. shhhhh don't tell SWMBO or I will be drowning in shoes.

Thanks, but I am not totally sold on al. pots yet.
What is everyone smoking! Get a keg of beer. Drink it. Then cut top off of it. $100 but you got drunk doing it.
Keggles work great, even for 5 gallons.
Not bad for bayou pot, but it's only 20 guage. Isn't this alittle thin?
My first brew will be on my stove no room for Keggle
