You might never get the oil out, but what do I know, I've never fried a turkey before.

Ive never done this but I really don't think its a good idea, even though it stainless steel, it can still "soak" up the grease and you will never get it out. I think it will just cause off flavors and kill the head retention.

I bought a used turkey fryer and it took me about a week of work to get all of the grease out. I would not suggest it if you would like to continue to use it for beer without a lot of extra work.

My brewpot is a used aluminum turkey frier pot. I used a wire brush, liberal amounts of elbow grease, Dawn dish detergent, hot water, maybe even some OxyClean, and then brought a full pot of water to a raging boil. I can honestly say that I have never even had a hint of oil in my beer. But it was enough work that I wouldn't try to use a single pot for double duty.

But when I asked about this on here, I seem to recall several people saying that they did just that. I will see if I can find that thread.

Edit: Here it is. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/ex-turkey-fry-pot-brewing-149955/

Mine is aluminum and was gifted from the FIL after he had fried turkeys in it for several years. It cleaned right up with hot water, dish detergent and a little scrubbing. It was not difficult at all.

I use my 5 gal pot for fries and chips during BBQs. I even left used oil in it for a month. Always cleans up fine, just boil some soapy water and rinse. Then dry using the flame from the burner. Never had any problems with my beer or potatoes.
