Hey folks, I just got a brinkmann turkey fryer that has this automatic temperature shutoff switch. There is a button (resistor I think) that the stock kettle sits on that is supposed to measure the heat of the kettle and turn off the flame if it gets too hot. The odd thing is that I can use the stock kettle (aluminum) all day long at whatever flame I want with no shutoff, but when I put my stainless kettle on the burner it turns off after about 5-10 minutes. I've tried turning down the burner way low with the stainless kettle and it still turns off. It should be noted that the stainless kettle does not sit "inside" the allotted kettle area, but sort-of sits on top of it (ie its diameter is larger than the burner's diameter).
Anybody else experience this or know what the issue is? I'd really like to use my nice stainless kettle with ball valve.
