Bought this item 3wks ago in preparation for Thanksgiving. Have used it 2 times so far. Build quality is good. I read some comments about concerns with the 5lb regulator but it works fine. Blue flame and plenty of power. I wrapped the threads with teflon tape before I screwed the hose into the burner. I live at 1300 feet elevation and cooked at 45 degrees, and this weekend at 21 degrees. I live in the northeast where we seem to be real proud of our cold. No issues at all. Everything works as expected and I'm ready for the main event. It does take a little getting used to if you've never deep fried before. I found cooking at 300-325 and adding 1 minute per pound the birds come out perfect. Pot cleaned up fine, no black soot on the bottom as some others have experiences, no issues with anything.

Benefits of Frying Your Turkey
Deep frying a turkey is the best way to seal in all of the natural juices without making the bird greasy or fatty. You get the best of both worlds with the juicy succulence of frying without the extra grease and fat. You'll be able to bring out flavors in your poultry that you just can't get with traditional cooking methods. If you've never had a fried turkey on Thanksgiving, it's definitely worth a try!
12" Probe Thermometer
The probe thermometer measures from 100-750 degrees Fahrenheit and comes with a clip so you can secure it to the side of the pot and monitor oil temperature.
3-Piece Skewer Set
Three metal skewers are included with hand screws to secure them to the poultry rack, allowing you to fry up a wide variety of foods!
1 oz. Marinade Injector
A 1 oz. marinade injector allows you to impart your signature flavors. Simply mix up your marinade, draw it into the injector, and distribute evenly throughout the turkey.
A heavy-duty stainless steel stand provides stability for your stock pot to make sure the boiling contents stay inside where they belong. Stainless steel also resists corrosion, making it a great option for outdoor use.
Perforated Poultry Rack
The included poultry rack holds your bird in place to ensure even oil distribution for a perfectly fried finish.
Power and Fuel Hookups
A 55,000 BTU cast iron burner powers this kit. It's controlled by a 5 PSI liquid propane regulator with a 36" rubber hose.
30 Qt. Boiling Basket
Thanks to the included 30 qt. boiling basket, this turkey fryer can be transformed into a boiler for seafood and vegetables! Simply use water instead of oil to explore all of the cooking possibilities available with this versatile kit.
Stainless Steel Construction
The 24 gauge stainless steel construction of this 30 qt. fryer pot ensures long-lasting performance and safer operation. High quality welds and sturdy handles on the pot and matching lid are perfect for frequent use.
Working with hot oil always adds risk to your standard cooking tasks, but the included lift hook makes removing your freshly fried turkey as safe as possible. Remember to always wear your protective gear when using a fryer. Avoid bare skin exposure and exercise caution at all times.

People Talk About:pot burner turkey stainless fryer steel great buy quality unit
We received this set last weekend and put it together without any trouble! My husband is familiar with metals and welds and is very impressed with the quality of this product! ! And ALL stainless steel....should withstand our ocean breezes! Great Buy! If you are in the market for a great outdoor cooker with burner at a terrific price, this is the one!!
I just received this fryer today from Webseraunt. It was delivered free of charge, which is a nice touch, and although they were back ordered, I had no problem with that after seeing the product. It must be popular and difficult to keep on stock. This is a quality item, all stainless steel with a welded burner stand. It is indeed, 100% stainless, except for the burner, of course, which must be cast iron. I have burned through three aluminium pot and cheep steel units in ten years costing the equivalent, if not a bit cheaper each time, than this unit. I am confident that this unit will last for years, from my experience with the big box store aluminium/steel models. The only concern that I have is that It comes with a 5 psi gas valve. It has been my experience that these units need 10 psi. Therefore, I Read More
The fryer/steamer appears to be of good quality and build except for a couple minor problems. First, the predrilled holes for the burner bracket are on the wrong side and 2 new holes will have to be drilled to accommodate the burner bracket legs. Second, one of the legs on the cooker assembly is only spot welded on the outside, the other 3 legs are spot welded on the outside as well as welded on both sides of each leg on the inside. The one leg may need a bolt through it to ensure it doesn't come loose thus creating a hazard of the assembly tipping. (Spot weld not very strong) Other than these issues it seems to be a nice unit.. Thank you David Reed
Thank you for the review! We're sorry that this steamer kit has some issues. A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you to ensure that you are fully satisfied.
The stainless steel pot is flimsier than I expected and the lid does not sit properly on the pot. Unfortunately, I delayed opening and using the pot past the 5 days after delivery, nothing could be done about the misshaped lid according to the chat rep. The burner stand needs some "beefing" up also, a little unstable even on a solid surface.
Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
Bought this as a father’s day gift and my dad loved it. It comes with tons of accessories and works great! I love it! Would definitely recommend.
I was very impressed with this purchase! I use this setup all the time for my business! The burner works great! No issues so far! I bought 5!
I looked at the hardware store and big box store fryers, none looked very sturdy. This one was just a few dollars more and is much sturdier, no worries about a slight breeze tipping it over. Mine arrived with no assembly instructions, but looking at photos of it assembled and it was together in short order. Even came with a "wrench", but I suggest you use actual tools to put it together. Planning on low country boil and fried turkey soon.
This is a great fryer that we used for thanksgiving time to help make a delicious Thanksgiving turkey. All the tools it comes with work great!
Backyard pro all stainless steel turkey fryer/steamer kit is AWESOME. Love it!! Have been wanting to do a shrimp boil for some time but had no idea what pot to buy. Can’t go wrong with setup. If you’re on the fence buy it. Everything you need and shipping is fast. Received my order in two days. Other reviews mentioned 5lbs regular, I’m @1,200 feet elevation no problems boiling 20 quarts of water (around 12 minutes). After 3 uses so glad I purchased this one
My husband decided this year we needed a turkey fryer of our own. He has been frying our Thanksgiving turkeys for a couple years now at a friends, but he wanted his own fryer so I thought going with the more pricey one with something like this is important and it was well worth the money. He was so happy with it and said it was so nice to work with and much better than the one he has been using.
What a killer deal for such a great product! We have used this steamer pot to steam oysters and then also to fry our turkey this year. Perfect size too!
we love this fryer i have used it many times to fry turkey and i have fried a whole chuck roast in it and its a nice set up
we use this at this time a year for outdoor shrimp boils and it works great. We steamed lobsters and vegetables. The burner is good and the stainless base and pot have lasted with little rust. For the cost its seems a good vakue
Save your money. I order this and used it exactly 4 times and small holes developed long the seams on the bottom of the pot. Maybe ok if you use is once a year and then you'll have it for awhile but if you plan to use it weekly buy something better in quality.
We appreciate your review, Joan. We wish this Backyard Pro All Stainless Steel 30 Qt. Turkey Fryer Kit / Steamer Kit - 55,000 BTU would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
this kit is incredible, it is perfect, all of stainless steel, I love it very much, I would recommend it to all who buy it and check its excellent quality
AMAZING! Used this fryer to fry our birds for Thanksgiving. Fried 3 turkeys (one for the neighbor) and we also do a whole fried chicken at our house. We fried all of these consecutively and it held up great. Nice easy setup and everything was included, just had to pick up some oil! Highly recommended.
I purchased this nice looking turkey fryer and have used it twice. It heated the oil fast and cooked myg turkey to perfection. Thank you and will buy again.
This all stainless steel turkey fryer is fantastic I’m very impressed with the fact that the pot the stand everything is stainless steel well worth the money I paid for it I ordered another one for my friend
After doing quite a bit of web surfing for a turkey fryer/seafood boiler I came across the Backyard Pro Stainless set. To be honest I thought the price was too good to be true and was hesitant to purchase. I rolled the dice and came out on top. Base is made from reasonably thick steel sheet metal. Thicker than I expected. I weigh 250 and stood on top of it and it didn't budge. The four Point footing is a huge plus. This design in my opinion beats any other base I have seen. Stable on concrete, grass, or sand. The quality of the pot and accessories is great. I wanted stainless for a reason, and I am glad I passed up aluminum. First boil was smooth. No problems. There are concerns with the 5 PSI regulater that I have read in other reviews. I did not find this to Read More
Have been looking for a good stainless steel pot and this was it. Easy to clean pot. Only wish it would come with a steamer stand for the pot. Burner is easy to put together and works great when frying a turkey. I am glad I bought it.
For the money I have nothing to complain about, you get a lot for a little out of pocket. I'm not sorry for the purchase and I'd recommend this to others with understanding, but not to just anyone! Other thoughts: Made in China just as all other American goods. Reasonably thick materials but poorly fitted! I'm @ 323 ft above sea level and this burner still needs more air then I can provide, I'm thinking about drilling holes since the air damper wide open still is not enough for a proper blue flame at night! This burner has some serious power though, I've managed to destroy 40 lbs of tomatoes by burning the sauce. Keep stirring whatever you cook with this and never leave it's side! The threaded nipple/bung that screws into the manifold leaves much to be desired. It's not about being tight, but rather the jet sliding forwards and back within Read More
You can't beat this entire kit for the price. It comes with everything you need to fry a turkey. I use it for boiling beans and anything else that you can think of in need of a strainer.
Awesome Turkey Fryer! The Back yard pro all stainless steel 30 QT turkey fryer kit is great. The price was awesome and it wasn't even on sale! I will be purchasing a few more.
Both the stainless pot and stand are made of thick, sturdy metal making the unit very stable. The burner element is also made of a heavy cast iron. The numerous accessories are high quality as well. It is very easy I set up and get cooking. My only issue is that I have not been able to get enough oxygen into the mixture to create a balanced flame. I haven't ruled out user error as the issue, but it would be nice to produce a smaller, hotter flame instead of a larger, cooler, sootier one.
This was a disappointment. There is a rivet missing on one of the handles. The max fill line is clear on the outside of the pot but not on the inside so it's hard to know how much oil to use. The outside of the pot got totally covered with soot while the flame was in use and it's impossible to get the black soot off.
Thank you for your review, Elizabeth. We are sorry this kit was missing some of the rivets when it arrived. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly to make sure this is taken care of.
I ordered this for two reasons. First my 5 year old fryer with a paper thin aluminum pot is burnout on the bottom. second, I can buy this whole kit for the same price as a 30 quart stainless steel pot else-ware. I bought the whole kit so i had the extra burner and got another basket and burner. I was pleased with the thickness of the steel and quality of the welds.
I ordered this Turkey Fryer to replace a 8 year old Aluminum one that started to leak at Thanksgiving. Everything was packed well, and was complete. I first used it on Christmas Eve to Steam Tamales. It held all tamales in 2 stacks, worked great. Christmas Day I used it to cook a Deep Fried Cajun Turkey. I set it all up, and fired up the gas. I noticed that the gas was not coming from the fire unit very well. I adjusted using the Air Intake sliders, and there was no change. The oil was taking significantly longer to heat than my old gas and Aluminium unit. So I got out my old gas frie stand, and hooked it up. The oil came to temperature very quickly. In my opinion the Gas burner unit included in this set is total junk! My 8 year old one works so much Read More
I got this kit for a hobby sized brewing operation. When brewing a 5 gallon batch of beer, the 30 Quart (7.5 gallon) volume allows for enough space when brewing to avoid boil-over. Trying to find a large Stainless Steel kettle at this price is difficult, and on top of that it comes with many other useful items. The burner stand is sturdy and is larger than the base of the kettle, which can accommodate the larger based pots that I own. The cast iron burner is sturdy and has easy adjustment for flame control. Assembly of the base was simple and only requires a small adjustable wrench and a screw driver. I would recommend this to any friends who wants to get an affordable kit to fry a turkey, or brew a batch of beer.
I use this not as a fryer but as a boiler. I take it to big events I food vend at and boil hot dogs in it. That's right Hot Dogs!! This baby can boil a hundred hot dogs easy in 7 to 10 minutes easy. Really allows me to keep up with the demand of the customers. This thing is a life saver. Well built and dependable.
I purchased this item and they processed my order and had it shipped the next day. Two days later it was at my doorstep. The first thing I noticed was the quality. The base where you put the pan on is wide and SOLID! No comparison to the small, cheap bases that I saw at the popular "home improvement" stores. You are going to be standing next to a pot of boiling oil pay a little more and make sure it's on a wide and strong stand!
real geat. couldnt ask for better. comes in handy. it really help me to can my speg. sauce. thank you it maded me real happy
Sturdy set up. Nice accessories. This thing will be around for years. Will use it for all kinds frying, steaming or boiling large bathes of foods. Highly recommend.
I got this item the day after I ordered it - the customer service was excellent! Haven't tried using it yet, but it is an excellent quality turkey fryer and I can't wait to use it!
