Well it's that time of year where you can't go into your local supermarket without tripping over the turkey fryers every 10 feet or so. I got to thinking that this would be a good time for me to look at moving to full boils. Is there a particular type of turkey fryer that is better than others?

Also, what is a good wort chiller to use to cool down the wort from the full boil?
Primary - nothing
Conditioning - nothing
Bottling - nothing
Drinking - nothing
Up Next - an IPA or a Mead

Honestly, I'd wait until after Thanksgiving. They'll ALL be on sale

I have a bayou classic turkey fryer and it's ok. The pot is cheap aluminum and it's kind of small (30 quarts) but I paid about $30 for it so I feel like I got my money's worth.

All the wort chillers you can buy from LHBS are basically the same. I bought this one (result #2) second hand from a member here on HBT: http://pivo.northernbrewer.com/nbsto...chiller+garden
