just grabbed a brand new 30qt set off Craigslist for $30. I've needed a separate burner and pot for a HLT for a while.I'm interested in one too. Any tips on where to score an after thanksgiving special?
I just noticed this on that Cabela's link:I Offer a tip to all of you.
Ensure that the fryer you get does NOT have a timer on it. This is mostly prevalent on ****ty little Wal Mart versions like I have. It's a great safety feature for jo-Schlub frying a turkey whilest 3/4 Drunk, but when your damn boil shuts off every 20 minutes, you're NOT GOING TO BE AMUSED!
Well.....The good thing is that even the stupidest person with a phillips screw driver and a butt connector can remove the timer! Take it apart and splice the 2 copper wires together. Works great!I just noticed this on that Cabela's link:
Due to a new CSA regulation, all turkey fryers built after July 2007 will be equipped with a safety shut-off timer. The timer will shut off the gas supply after a preset time period unless the user manually resets it.
