Was just searching one of the slickdeals websites and happened upon this Turkey Fryer. Seems like a good deal and even has a spicket on it. Thought someone out there may be interested, or maybe someone already has one and could fill in with some input about it.

Edit: It's 29.88

Nice find! Very cool that it has a spigot pre-installed, I wish they had this model at lowe's when I picked up my Bayou Classic.

Pretty damn close to the one I have. It was $60 at Sears, so this thing is a steal. Works great too. I now use a keggle on the same burner, and use the aluminum pot for heating strike and sparge water.

This may be a dumb question. But I'll ask anyway. Could I use this put as a wort boiler AND for frying if I clean the hell out of it before using it to boil wort? Or does oil residue just not clean well enough?

I wouldn't risk it, but I am sure there a more than a few people that have done it successfully. Still I don't think it's a good idea.

For all those with a large boil kettle with a spigot - is it worth it? Would you go back to a spigot-less pot? I'm thinking I could probably wait until after the holidays this year and find one on clearance for a little cheaper, but I'm sure it wouldn't have a spigot. I'm thinking of jumping on this even though I don't plan on starting all gain until sometime next year. ~$40 shipped for a spigoted turkey fryer. It seems too good to pass up.

I'm also kind of wondering why this thread didn't take off like the other one a couple months back about the ~$35 turkey fryer from amazon. Of course that was at the time of the first post, then it dropped to <$30, and just when I decided to pull the trigger on that one, the priced jumped to $70. Get this - It's now up to $173.57!!!

It's a 6.5 gallon brewpot. That's probably why.

Still a great deal. I'll probably throw down. If you're doing extracts, you could do a full volume boil I imagine pretty easily. Not sure if this would do the deal for AG, but hell it's still a great deal.

I didn't even notice that it was only 6.5 gallons, thought it was 7.5
