Heads up- right now Wal-Mart has their own turkey fryer kits on sale. At only $45 I had to try it out.
My first impressions:
Stand/burner is a knock-off of the Bayou Classic, and surprisingly sturdy.
The burner itself is a low quality cast iron piece. I haven't found a BTU rating but I'll take a look at the directions/manual later and post it.
The 30 qt fryer pot is only slightly thicker than aluminum foil. I wouldn't really recommend brewing in this, however it it better than nothing.
The hose/regulator includes a timer/thermocouple as a "safety shut off valve". I already removed this as it seems like it would be annoying (it shuts off the gas every 20 mins).
I wanted to wait to post until I test it out but brewing won't resume until this coming weekend. Overall I think it was worthwhile, only this weekend's test will tell. I still have well under $100 worth of brewing equipment and make some tasty brews- whatever works!
