Default Pots and burners

I'm sure people out there use turkey fryer kits for boiling wort. Any recommendations? Aluminum, SS, brand?

I got this one for the spigot and love it. It has a stupid timer on it that you can either bypass with a new regulator hose or just tape it to stop it from winding down.

zolakk, I was just looking at the same burner/kettle package and was wondering if there is a way to completely remove the timer, its hard to tell without actually seeing it in person. I need a burner and have a few Basspro giftcards to burn so this one is looking really attractive if that is possible.

tubbster I have heard that stainless steel is the way to go, apparently aluminum pots can give some off flavors although I have never experienced that myself.

I can't find it on their website (they have it in their store), but you have to get a new regulator & hose kit because the timer uses different threads. When I accidentally killed the one mine came with, I went to the store and the replacement hooks right into the burner instead of through the timer. It looks just like this: http://www.amazon.com/Bayou-Classic-Stainless-Steel-Braided/dp/B000KE3OQS/ref=dp_cp_ob_lg_title_0
