The Bayou Classic Outdoor Cooking System is the essential item needed when entertaining outdoors! The 30-Quart Stockpot was specifically designed for frying whole turkeys. The tall, narrow patented design requires less cooking oil than a standard stockpot. The perforated raised poultry rack allows the cooking oil to circulate evenly when frying, preventing the bottom from scorching. The grab hook provides a way to safely insert and remove poultry from hot cooking oil. The 12" Stainless Steel Deep Fry Thermometer is perfect for maintaining a constant temperature of cooking oil when frying.
