full boil
I was considering buying a turkey frier for full boiling. Is this a good idea? Pros / cons? Thanks.

Yes it's a good idea, I use a Bayou Classic sq14 and it brings a 7 gal wort to boil no problem. Plus brew outside now so my wife is happy, full boil brewing so I'm happy, really a win win. If your pot is a 10 gallon or bigger would be a concern, but I'd definitely go for it.

I brew 7 gallons in a 15 gallon pot on my turkey fryer no problem

Last summer, I did a 10 gal batch in my 15 gal pot on my cheap Walmart turkey fryer. Actually, I did it twice in the same day! :D (I usually do 5 gal batches)

I use a turkey fryer and do BIAB full volume in it. I have to be careful not to boil over at hot break and have some limitation on how big a beer I can make in it. The pot on mine is 30 qt.

You'll definitely need a wort chiller if you don't have one.

I am about to make the switch to BIAB and convert a keg I have into a kettle. So now I am looking for a burner and was wondering if anyone has had an issue with weight using the burner from the Turkey fryer? Keg = ? Water = 8 lb a gal plus grains can add up quick.

Those 10 gal. batches I did above were BIAB with a commercial grade 60 qt stock pot.

Thanks, I figured it would suitable but wanted to make sure before I bought one.

OT but does anyone have any idea how many batches a propane tank is good for?
