OK, so I searched but didn't quite find my question.
So with this turkey fryer, the Cajun Injector (or any of seven other brand names...) the heating element and thermostat control are one unit and removable. Since I'm planning to shift over to BIAB anyway, what if I popped the whole heating unit and thermostat into my kettle as a supplement to my stove?
I know people have mentioned before that most coil-element stoves don't have the horses to do a full boil, and neither does this fryer. I'm thinking if I use them together I should be able to get a great boil going without turning my stove above medium-high or so. (Thus avoiding damaging my stove.)
Sound like a decent plan? I'd build a heatstick, but I don't think the wiring in the house I'm in now could handle a 220V element.
Also, I'm thinking the built-in thermostat sounds great for precise mash temps. Anyone know how low you can set the thermostat on these things? Because if it doesn't go below, say, 200*F then I might as well just put in a GFI outlet and build a stick.
