Americans like to do it at thanksgiving. Some YouTube vids of them deep-frying whole birds. Go watch some and scare yourself.I thought the same Florian.
I dont know about using it for brewing but would like to see how it would go with smoking meats or even a roast.
some yankee turkey fryer in reviews below item said:Good idea and makes great turkeys when it works. I bought this a few months ago, used it 3 times before the bottom fell out of the stainless steel container (that you insert into the fire chamber)and this caused a small grease fire in the unit. Upon closer inspection the container is cheaply tack welded together and will come apart after a few uses. I have confirmed this flaw with another BIG EASY owner who also is having the same problem with the tack welds. Warranty is only 3 months on this product so it will last only one season if you are lucky. Char-Broil needs to look at their quality control concerning critical components with respect to this product since this could be a potential safety hazard.
me too someone post a pic
