Does anyone have an opinion about the 10qt fish fryers Bass Pro Shop sells?  Or a suggestion of what to buy or what to look for in one of those fryers.  I usually fry in the house with my big fry daddy.  I want to fry out doors some and am not sure what to get or look for as far as quality and durability.

Do depend on what you are gonna fry. Most all the fish fryers will do a fine job of frying fish or fries, hush puppies, onion rings, etc. If you ever want to say fry a turkey the fish fryers will not work. Most fish fryer kits have burners that have an output of 35K to 50K btu's. Most turkey fryers have burners that have an output of 135K to 180K btu's.

Huge difference. That extra capacity is needed to heat all the extra oil and overcome that huge heat sink when you put a large cold bird into the oil.

If only gonna fry fish and fixins for a fish fry then any of the fish fryin kits sold are adequate. Most all are aluminum. The more expensive have a stainless steel pot. Stainless is much easier to clean than aluminum. But stainless are more expensive.

The best of both worlds is to buy a turkey fryin kit and also get a fish fry pot which is smaller. Then you can fry anything.
