Default Turkey fryer from amazon

Does anyone have this Amazon.com: Bayou Classic 3066A 30-Quart Outdoor Turkey Fryer Kit: Home & Garden ? From the picture it looks like the edges of the burner are raised so that you can't fit a bigger pot than the 30qt that comes with it on there, I have a 40qt pot that I was thinking about buying this so I'd have both pots, but I don't want to if my 40qt pot wont fit on this. Any input?

If your 40 qt pot is 14.5" in diameter or less, it should fit.

Otherwise, go with the SP1 or SQ14.

I have the one you're asking about. I used the 30 quart aluminum pot that the kit comes with for about three brews, then moved up to a keggle. I bought a 14" round steel BBQ rack from Lowes and I put it on the burner, and the keg onto the rack. Works great, the pot is pretty good too, except boil overs will be a problem. I use it now to heat up sparge water.

Good Luck...

Ditto! Sold my aluminum pot later to a new brewer for $25. That burner kicks out plenty of heat to get 14 gallons of wort boiling...great little thing.

Bayou classic burner on the left, under the boil kettle!
