Found this on Craig's List-
Propane Turkey Fryer setup

$25 for this turkey pot. In an email the seller told me it is a 5-6 gallon pot. She doesn't know the brand.

Any suggestions?

Personally, I would have little use for a 5-6 gallon pot. However, that looks to be a standard 30qt or maybe even slightly larger. The burner looks to be a SQ14 which is a relatively good burner that many people like around here.

Seems like a good find to me if you are getting everything for $25 (I read your post as only the pot for $25). Perhaps take a look at it and see what it's all about. If its only the pot for $25 and it is indeed 30qt or larger than it's an OK find in my eyes.

It's everything for $25 (sorry about the confusion).
Is it a problem that it's been used for frying turkeys?

The burner looks like a SQ14 and for $25 is a good deal. I bought mine new for $50.

The pot does look like a 30-32 qt so while a little small it is passable as a full boil pot.

Good deal all around.

30 qt is plenty for me, especially at this price.
Now I'm just hoping that it isn't gone by the time I try to claim it.
