Looks just like my King Cooker 60 qt Aluminum pot. Works great.

Strainer basket is useless though. Just more clutter in my garage.

Ive got the 9 gal stainless pot from cab. It seems to be good, ive yet to use it though. It doesn't have a really heavy bottom though, i hope it doesn't cause me any issues. Other than that nice quality stainless and comes with a big basket that will never get used im sure. LOL

Like Zach said, looks a little thin, they don't seem to give the gauge, maybe the're not proud of it. but I don't know. That's really high if it is thin. You might try a restaurant supply.

My SWMBO wanted me to do up a batch of corn in mine already, im a little hesitant to cook anything other than beer in it, i would hate to come out with corn flavored beer. LOL
Im not sure of the gauge of the stainless, although i know the Alum ones are Much thicker which doesn't surprise me, i dont suspect that i will have too much of an issue with mine, it would be nice to have the thick bottom like some pots and pans have but im sure i would have had to shell out a lot for that and im trying to keep it semi cheap. LOL I posted some pics of my brew pot on here under a post if you wanted to search for it, if you were interested.

I have a gift certificate to Cabellas and was hoping to use that. They just built one not too far from me so I think I'll take a ride up there and check it out in person.

I got this one a few years ago for $80...They are $100 now but for stainless steel that's a good price.
