Default 8.5 Gallon Sunjoy Turkey Fryer, stainless

Is this a good deal? Is it good enough for a full boil?

34 qt is a good size for a 5 gal batch and it is SS which is also favored. Stand looks sturdy. Plus you get all that extra stuff should you want to fry a turkey! It looks like a good deal however the BTU output is not displayed. Should be adequate I'm sure. I would buy it if I had the space...

I have an 8 gallon pot and wish I had a 10 gallon one. I get a lot of evaporation and would like to start with 8 gallons.

Looks like it is 51,000 BTU.

Well... a person can work up a mean, mean thirst after a hard day of nothing much at all.

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

CHeck sams. I got the same one pictured for $50 at Sams a few months back. The Costco one is a little different. The costco one is a Bayou Classic. Fofr the record, the one pictured works great.

Is the stock pot aluminum or SS? If SS, that is a good deal, but it's not clear from the description.

Well I found one I like better retail and its just as big from a poster here. So... I'll wait a little bit... I've been spending too much $$ lately... I need to learn patience!
I've only brewed 4 beers and i'm already freaking out about going all grain, exact fermentation temperatures yadda yadda yadda! I really need to RDWHAHB!
