That link doesn't work for me. It just takes me to HD's homepage for some reason.

Link just takes me to THD's home page but non-the-less, many people on here use turkey fryers for full boils! I use one as well...works just fine.

nevermind... I found it.

One comment about those round fryers... if you ever try to put a converted keg on it, they don't sit on there right. The bottom of the keg is bowl-shaped and they are unstable looking.

But... I'm sure that fryer will work just fine with a flat bottom kettle.

I bought and used the cheapest turkey fryer I could find (on sale at WalMart, right after Thanksgiving) and it had no problems boiling 10 gallon batches.

The link didn't quite work - but if you are talking about the 30qt Fryer - then YES... I (and many others here) use one just like it. I do 5 gal. batches all the time... but know that it isn't quite 30qts. it closer to 7gal (28qts) at the top... I usually boil at 6.5gals with no problems. BUT I keep a squirt bottle close by and really pay attention for boil-overs while coming to a boil or adding hops.

Some ppl on here also use FermCap to stop boil-overs.

Yea I still plan on doing five gallon batches. I am getting a kegerator and I'm gonna buy a few corneys and start doing full five gallon boils. It's gonna be nice.

BTW I'm getting the kegerator for free my cuzin has one and doesn't need it anymore.

FYI: if you cut-n-paste the link in the browser, it works just fine. Clicking it, though, doesn't work.

as long as it has at least a 8 gal. pot, it will work great. 10 gal would be better. boil overs happen.

It must be the Brinkman with 7.5 gal pot for $70...I am in the market too. I would be curious how the burner on that one compares with the Bayou Classic SQ-14 at HD for $50? I was planning on getting the SQ-14, but would be willing to pay the extra $20 to get an extra boil pot.

Also, does anyone know how well Keggles would fit on that Brinkman stand?
