I got the turkey fryer when I was starting back into homebrewing with some partial mash recipes. Now it just heats up my strike and sparge water.
The day I was going to brew my first all grain, I realized I needed a larger pot, we have a discount grocery store here that sells large stock pots normally used for making tamales, well I make beer and it's 13 gallons. I paid $40 for it.
I have the burner stand that came with the fryer and another square one that I use for the larger pot. The burners looks to be about the same size, I don't know how many BTUs though. I believe it is the standard turkey fryer size, which is not that much I think.
Buying the components separate is going to run more, but you will probably get a better product.
