I haven't had much luck in finding any kegs to convert! Sure, I know I could buy an already converted keggle but I don't want to drop the coin. This heavy duty aluminum kettle cost me $75 delivered.

Portability is a big deal for me. Sometimes I brew in the basement, sometimes I brew on the back porch, sometimes I brew away from home. I go 'nomad' style a lot.

75 Bones delivered is pretty hard to beat.....where'd you score that? My bro is in the market for a decent sized kettle.
