Default Ideas on this kettle/burner?

I stumbled across this, and was wondering what your thoughts are on purchasing this so I can start doing full boils? Seems like a good price for the combo.

Turkey fryers! Man, why didn't we think of that?

Yeah man, lots of us use turkey fryers. $56 isn't a bad price either. I say pull the trigger on that bad boy.

I have it. I have no problem boiling 13 gallons with it. I replaced the regulator with a 5-60 psi one because the stock one kept sticking in the cold.

How you can fit 13 gallons in a 30quart pot I would like to know.

I have this setup and can boil app. 6-6.5 gallons.

Regulator is fine, never had a problem. The pot is thin aluminum, which is fine but I am looking around for something more "permanent".

I am sure it has been written somewhere on this site, but why are aluminum pots not "permanant"?

The pot is cuttin it close for full boils if you ask me. I had a 30qt and could never fill it up enough and not boil over...I would always end up with at the most 5 gal going into primary after evaporation. I just upgraded to a 40 quart aluminum pot that should last me forever.

I also have a 60qt pot. The 30 qt worked for full boils but now it's a HLT. I had to fill it up to over the bead near the top and kill the heat a few times during the hot break while using a spray bottle.
