I found this set at Walmart.

I'm in Canada, so all of those online places with good deals on pots are pretty useless to me.

Welcome to Walmart Canada

Comments and or suggestions?

I'm planning on 5 gallon batches...I'm just starting with all grain.

That looks perfect. I use a turkey fryer very similar to that one. Can't go wrong with that. Got the burner plus you have a large enough pot to do full boils for your 5 gallon batches, with plenty of room to spare. If you haven't done full boils yet, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the results compared with topping off.

That is a nice size for 5 gallon batches. Depending on price, got my vote!

i didn't see a price but it looks pretty good. Any idea what the burner is like? Looks like it might be similar to the Bayou SQ14. I say go for it.

It's $96 CAD for the burner and pot.

Having no idea what the availability of this kind of thing is up in the Great White North, I would say that 96 C or 85 USD is a fair price. Looks good and will probably serve you well. Not a steal...not a rip...up to you??

I just found a very similar burner and pot at another location.

The pot is listed as 48L and the burner looks almost the same.

It's a bit more $$$ but not enough to make a difference.

42qt or 48L???

Bigger is better???

Either will work great for 5 gallon batches. If you think you will ever want to do larger batches, the bigger pot might be nice to have.

I do 7.75 gallon batches in a 44 qt. (11 gal.) kettle.

If you are thinking about making some really big AG barleywines, the 42 might be a bit tight.
