Academy Sports is about the cheapest place I could find one. $49.99 for a 30qt stainless pot seemed like a steal being that nearly every one I saw online was $70+. Bought a burner stand as well. You guessed it....I'll be frying a turkey this Thanksgiving. Not only that, but now I can actually host low-country boil shindigs without having to borrow everything like I have in the past. Gonna do some boiled peanuts, too eventually. This will be my 1st fried turkey. I've read tons of marinade recipes and whether or not to brine or just rub it down with some Tony Chacheres rub. I'm thinking I may use their injectable marinade and the rub without brining just to see how it turns out.
