The price is sure right. But it looks like the burners might be the jet engine types?

Actually when I posted this I was kidding. When I first looked at this I was thinking it would be good for a sugar bush (making Maple syrup) because itís long and shallow and would accommodate quick evaporation. For that price it is unfortunate that itís about 500 miles away or I would buy it and experiment with it.

I donít know anything about jet burners vs. the burner on my turkey cooker maybe someone could explain the difference.

The jet burners concentrate the heat in one area. The other type, ring burners, spread the flame out. Also, the jet burners often tend to soot up the bottom of the kettle.

How many gallons do you think it holds?

more...i have never measured the amount of liquid...i would cook
150lbs of corn in it with water and lime

I think 70-80 gallons is a dubious claim. It appears be about the same size as a half-cut 55 gallon drum. I could be wrong though.

Well if he cooks 150 lbs of corn in it, it has to be pretty big. A 10 gallon mash tun with 26lbs of grain and water with a ratio of 1qt/lb is pretty much full. Assuming the same ratio for cooking his corn, you're looking at about a 60 gallon capacity.

It would be a pretty easy thing to go to a scrap yard and get a row of burners out of a home furnace. Nice, evenly distributed heat.
