I picked up one of these kits at Home Depot and used it yesterday to fry two 13-lb Thanksgiving turkeys and it worked great - no problems at all. I fried them one-at-a-time at about 40 minutes each and they were delicious. The wide three-legged base is very stable and the burner provides plenty of heat which brought the oil up to temperature fairly quickly both when initially heating the oil and after putting a bird in. The hottest the oil got was 375 and auto shutoff never engaged so there were no problems with that for me. Other reviewers had complained about that elsewhere and I was prepared to defeat it if necessary.

There is a max-fill line on the side of the pot which turned out to be exactly the amount of oil I needed and was about 3.5 gallons. Next time I'll just fill right to that line and skip the whole water-fill measurement step described in many places on the Web.

The only annoyance was that during assembly I missed installing the spring in step 2 because it is not shown in the assembly drawing. When I had the spring left over I read all the text and had to disassemble part of unit to install the spring. The purpose of the spring is to provide a little friction for the air mixing control.

I tested the thermometer provided with the kit by placing it in a pot of boiling water and it was fairly accurate but I plan to buy a better quality one before I use fryer again. There is too much riding on the temperature of the oil both from a safety standpoint and when trying to cook based on cooking times that assume a certain oil temperature. I plan to just use them both and as long as they agree with each other I should be good to go. I also need to buy a large metal funnel with a fine mesh screen and/or cheese cloth to filter the oil after use.

Used this for 2 all-grain homebrew beer batches so far. If you do a 6.5 gallon boil, this gets pretty close to the top for a while. If you have lots of hop additions you might want a different pot as it gets close to boilover with a big addition.
The "safety features" are kind of annoying, I think when I get the time I will bypass all of that stuff.
But for the price it is great. Comes to a boil plenty fast, and I can keep a full roiling boil of 6.5 gallons without having the gas cranked all the way.

As the author of [[...]] a friend of mine recently asked me to help him deep fry a turkey. He had just purchased this turkey fryer kit, but felt that the instructions were lacking, so he asked me for some pointers.

As far as fryers go, while this is a very basic kit, you certainly can't beat the price! I know for a fact that this is the most affordable turkey fryer on the market today, so if you're just getting started, it's a great turkey frying kit. While the kit is basic, it does come with a thermometer (remember you deep fry at 350 F for 3.5 minutes per pound) and even an injection kit. (This is so you can inject a flavorful marinade into your turkey, even though I myself prefer a brine).

The gas valve to the propane tank on this kit is also great, because it really allows you to adjust the flame to maintain your heat at a constant 350 F while you're deep frying your turkey.

I would have given this turkey frying kit 5 stars, but I downgraded it to 4 stars for 2 main reasons:

1. It doesn't come with a fryer basket, which you really need to when you recycle your oil and make chicken wings and french fries afterwards!
2. The instructions aren't great, especially if you've never deep fried a turkey before. Of course, I am a bit biased there, since I wrote an entire book on how to deep fry a turkey, but still, for a rookie, the instructions aren't completely "idiot proof".

Overall, this is a solid fryer that is affordable! I would recommend this fryer to anyone about to deep fry their first turkey, or looking for the most cost effective equipment to do so.

Enjoy your deep fried turkey!

I know, I know, this is a turkey fryer; however, I bought this for homebrewing as the kitchen stove in the home that I'm renting doesn't have enough power to boil 3 gallons of water. So, I use this in homebrewing.

In terms of Extract and Partial Mash brewing, this is a pretty awesome burner. The 7.5 gallon pot has a ton of head space that allows for enough time to reduce the heat during the hot break so you don't get a boil over.

In terms of All Grain, this is not the burner to use. I didn't realize the burner was spring loaded, when I extracted into my 10 gallon pot and then tried to use this burner it was a fail, the flame won't stay lit due to the safety feature. Again, this is a turkey fryer, so I can't get too upset. But when extracting 6-6.5 gallons of wort into a 7.5 gallon pot, that leaves little head space. Once I got past the hot break, at times, the rolling boil wanted to boil over.

I gave this 4 stars because this product is pretty awesome for extract, I wish it could have done more than heat mash and sparge water for all grain.

We bought this to fry turkeys. After attempting to light 40 times we finally got it to stay lit....but it was hard to control the temp....the second time we tried it we attempted to light it around 45 times....it would stay lit for between 10 and 60 seconds and then shut off...how frustrating! I'm just glad we weren't having a party.
We tried every permutation of lighting possible but couldn't get it to stay lit...and, of course, Brinkman's office is now closed so there's no tech support... I really really regret buying this thing and urge anyone to NOT buy this...
I have seen other brands of turkey fryers that did not have this shutoff system which I think is the problem...I would just look for the simplest thing possible....with just an on-off switch...it has got to work 100% better than this pile of junk
