These guy's have the cheapest I've found. Stock Pots : Discount Stock Pots at Wares Direct Discount Restaurant, Janitorial and Office Supplies

They've got a 80qt pot for what Yankee paid for the 50.
I decided to splurge and get the thicker one because it wasn't much more. The place you linked looks cheap, but then they add $6 handling and $20 shipping. I got it from here: Stock Pot 40 Qt. Hvy Weight: Kitchen Supply Direct, Inc.

After shipping it was slightly cheaper than your place.

What's the catch here? Those prices are insanely good.

I already have a 60 qt aluminum pot that I paid way too much for compared to these prices.

Somebody ought to alert the entire forum about this. Not that I overpaid for mine but that this place has great prices...

The catch is high shipping and handling. Still not bad though.

Yeah, I hadn't actually bought one yet, and the site I linked charges 2.99 Handling and $20 for shipping so instawares is a lot cheaper.
But the free shipping is available on the 60qt and smaller pot.

I just purchased a 6mm 60quart pot. It is a monster. I havn't used it yet because I don't trust it with 10 gallons on my turkey fryer. It's not a "bayou" type and is a bit flimsy. I'm in the process (thinking about) fabricating a new stand. The (2mm?) pot that came with the fryer works well enough for 5 gallons, extract.

I have not seen a 4mm but I'm not sure 6mm is essential. It's certainly sturdy, and I don't think it will ever dent. Here's the one I got.

The shipping was around $20, so it came out to just over $100.
