Anyone find one of these at a common brick and mortar store?

Lowes, Home Depot, Wal-mart....something like that?

Need to find one for this weekend, and don't want to pay a arm and a leg.

I would try a restaurant supply store. I bought both my 10g and 15g pot there. Every town usually has a place like this, just pull up your phone book.

A Sportsman's Warehouse or other hunting/camping store (nor REI) may have a turkey fryer pot that size. This time of year, the big box stores may have them, too, but I suspect it'll be in a kit with a burner, steamer basket, and other stuff you may not want.

+ 1 on restaurant supply store. The pot with a turkey fryer is only going to be 32 qt at best.

I picked up a 15G aluminum pot w/ boil strainer at a sporting goods store that also carried "outdoor" cooking equipment. Grills, smokers, sausage suffers, jerky equipment, that sort of thing.

What price are you guys finding for a 40 Quart aluminum pot? (10 Gallon)

The stores in my area want $100 bucks for one, which seems really high.

Assuming you're a member, Sams Club has 10/15/20 gallon restaurant-grade aluminum pots for cheap.

I ordered three 15 gallon pots (with lids) a while back for $46/each plus $8 shipping for the entire order.

Think I paid about $60 for a 15 gallon at Lit.
