Default Cheapest Brewkettle?

Guys,

I know this has been posted a million times, so please hold off on yelling at me! Several weeks ago I came across a particular post where the OP shared a link to the cheapest kettles I've ever seen online. The post included a picture of his two grade-school-aged children sitting in the pot. Lots of jokes followed.

My question is: Does anyone know where the post is hiding? Or what site he referenced? I cannot find it anywhere..

Thank you!

Can't say I have seen that thread but the cheapest large kettle I know of is the Penrose kettle. Search for that one.

Sadly it seems they are out of stock. They've got a cool business model slash story on the website. Hopefully they keep going.

I don't know about cooking children, but check out this thread. The ebay seller has 100 qt kettles very cheap.

Nothing beats a keggle. Search craigslist and you'll find one soon enough.

IMO, keggles suck big time. I would trade a keggle for a regular kettle of the same capacity in a heartbeat. Don't believe everything you read on the interwebs.

The OP wasn't looking for the best kettle, but the cheapest. That being said, $30 for a 15-gallon SS kettle qualifies as the cheapest.
