Default Outdoor Gourmet 30qt pot - Anyone have this?

Anybody use one of these to do their boils in?

I found this Outdoor Gourmet, 30qt Aluminum Pot at Academy Sports for 19.99...which I thought was a pretty good deal.

I bought one, and when I unpacked it I found that there was some metallic dust in the bottom of the pot.

Can I just wash this metallic dust out, and be good to brew from this point forward?

here is a link to the pot:

Once you have the dust washed out fill it with water and boil it for about 10 minutes. This will form a black oxide layer. Now it will be ready for brewing. Don't scrub the black oxide off.

I got the little more expensive Stainless Steel pot at Academy. I hears that you should not use a Aluminum pot but that may be BS.

Aluminum pot is perfectly fine. Good find, do exactly what first poster says and oxidize it. Enjoy your new pot.

Yeah it came with a thermometer (with clip), Cajun injector applicator/needle, Pot, Lid, turkey hanger, and a false bottom/strainer device.

I couldn't find the exact one on their website, but the store had plenty for 19.99.

Also found a 39.99 version that had a few more strainer type extras, as well as a gas regulator and some hoses. I couldn't verify that it had the actual burner and base...didn't have time to open one up and check.
