now i have never fried a turkey so i dunno any of the steps to it or what you use besides a turkey lol, but i ran across a video of firefighters demostrating the dangers of turkey fryers in case of a boil over. it took a split sec for this thing to bust into a big huge flameball which the firefighter standing next to it put out very quickly cuz if the hose to the tank catches fire, well it will be a little bomb i suppose. Now i know whatever you fry turkey with is very flameable, but for my safety and others newbies out their. Is our wort flammable or would it most likely just put out the burner flame?

Wort is not flammable, thankfully. It's mostly water, after all.

I can only speak for the sp10, as thats what I have. I love the thing, it will get 7.5 gallons boiling in no time. I'm using a 40qt. brew kettle and it fits with no problems, as someone else said if you plan on using a keggle the square burner would probably work better. I have seen the round one modified to fit a keggle though.

By definition since the SP14 has 4 legs instead of the 3 of the SP10, it should be more stable unless it's taller and therefore has a higher center of gravity.

Boil water for 30 minutes or stick it in the oven. Check out FAQ: Aluminum Pots for Boil Kettles?

I've got the SP10. Works like a champ for me and my 8 gallon stainless pot. Sometimes almost too good.

i think i'm going to pay the extra $13 or so and get the sq14 just for the added stability. also would you reccomend a wort chiller for doing partial boils? i plan on doing partial boils for awhile because it's not as heavy carrying wort back into house. the stove i have now is way too weak. i think the square one with 4 legs is probably the safest course of action for me.

nvm i'm an idiot the first batch too forever to boil since i only used one burner. i am doing a test run with 2.5 gallons of water straddling 2 burners and it's already producing tiny bubbles.
