So I get a call from the wife who is out impulse shopping with my 4yr old son today. She's at Homegoods (a clearance store for crap in the home) and she says "would you have any use for a 60qt kettle? They have a few here for $32."

I have yet to see the thickness, but, since it was marked down from $120, it's safe to assume it's aluminum. I thought I was badass finding the instawares 60qt for $75.
The whole story is that she doesn't like the keggle. Frankly, I don't either and will be selling it now.
$20 local pickup to anyone in SD. The top's cut off (round, clean, and smooth) but no spigot on it yet.

what's her objection? You don't have it on permanent display in the living room, or anything, do you?

What is it you don't like about the instaware 60 qt. pot? I sold mine about year ago and just upgraded to 160 qt. ones

Well, I asked if she would pose with it. She just gave me one of those "you need a 12-step program" looks.
I am very pleased. It's 1/8" thick as opposed to 3/16" on my existing one. It's a hair wider at the top, a little taller, and slightly tapered, but otherwise identical. Oh, except for one major difference. This one came with a lid, that also fit my existing one!

To add to the general goodness, you may notice that I'm drinking Stone's 12 Anniversary Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout. It is delicious.

I love it. I am selling the Keggle.

I found adding a spigot to the thick aluminum so easy. I drilled a 3/4" hole with a cheap step bit from Harbor Freight, then forced the nipple through, cutting threads on the way.

C'mon, who wants a keggle with most of the work done?
