Default Full boil and wort chiller question

Well it's that time of year where you can't go into your local supermarket without tripping over the turkey fryers every 10 feet or so. I got to thinking that this would be a good time for me to look at moving to full boils. Is there a particular type of turkey fryer that is better than others?

Also, what is a good wort chiller to use to cool down the wort from the full boil?

Honestly, I'd wait until after Thanksgiving. They'll ALL be on sale

I have a bayou classic turkey fryer and it's ok. The pot is cheap aluminum and it's kind of small (30 quarts) but I paid about $30 for it so I feel like I got my money's worth.

All the wort chillers you can buy from LHBS are basically the same. I bought this one (result #2) second hand from a member here on HBT: http://pivo.northernbrewer.com/nbsto...chiller+garden
