Sorry, didn't mean to be long wended. One of my faults.

Your standard Academy turkey pot can be a universal tool. Fry a turkey one day, make a gumbo in the same pot another day, chili, boil crabs/shrimp whatever. Don't need to spend a lot of money, unless you loan your stuff out. grin

A cast iron pan or Dutch Oven is always a great tool to have around, as well.

Get after it. cheers

Labeling matters in fryer vs boiler. A fryer now is required to have a temp regulator and a shutoff timer. The shutoff timer is not adjustable, and you will have to re-light every 10 or 15 minutes.

Every single year a couple hundred idiots around the country burn their houses down trying to fry turkeys, so we have to make up rules to protect stupid from itself.

For me, I have a big boiler with as high of a BTU count as I can get. The high heat and wide pot is needed for a shrimp boil, or to make a euro mount. I also fry turkeys, but I have a narrow pot, and keep a close eye on the temps. You can also get a cast iron ring to use as a heat diverter on a jet burner. It helps, but you still have to keep an eye on it.

And for pete's sake, make sure you bird is fully thawed before you drop it in hot oil!

When I seasoned my Big Easy I stacked three chickens on the rack I used to fry turkeys on. I just set it down in the basket and fired that mother up. They were delicious.
