Price the copper when shopping for the turkey fryer...IC fabrication is also fairly easy. My buddy spent the money of fittings for the IC and I kind of chuckled because mine has no fittings...I just slide my tubing over the copper and tighten with worm clamps. Of course, I need a pot holder or towel to hold the copper when doing so
With winter on the horizon, you have some help from mother nature in cooling if you cannot afford the IC right away...
