I would like to boil 10-gallon wort in a 13 gallon pot but using immersion heatsticks (that I can just plug in and simply put into the wort). I don't want to use gas or have to drill a hole and set up electric elements inside the pot.

Has anyone done it? Is it possible at all?

If yes, where can I find such immersion heaters?

Thanks in advance for the information.

I boil 3 to 17 gallons with heat sticks and my stove every time I brew. I run a 10 ga extension cord to the gfci in the bathroom to run both at the same time.
