Question Crawfish pot, burner, etc.

I know there are several crawfish threads, but I couldn't find this specific information. I am looking to purchase a pot and burner and wanted to get recommendations regarding brand, size, etc. What say you?

For a pot you definitely want the Cajun Rocket Pot. for a burner you will want something that puts out any where from 100,000 to 185,00 BTUs. Cajun Rocket pot is about $230 for a 100 QT.

My pot cost $100 from Wal mart and it is going on its 7th season of pretty heavy use. Any of the jet burners will do the job. I just got a new one from Academy and paid $40 for it and it worked fine for the 2 sacks I boiled on Saturday. There are better ones though. My buddy got his from Ace Hardware and his burns much hotter than mine. He sprung for the 40 PSI regulator too though.

DO NOT try to boil water with a burner made for frying.

i just heard about this thing Friday afternoon, while i was twiddling my thumbs waiting for my pot to roll....is that the one with the "nodes" on the bottom to hasten boiling?

What size pot do you use? I can't decide between 80qt or 100qt.

Yes. That's the one.
I believe they're made locally, along with King Kooker products.

Cajun Rocket Pot - aluminum crawfish boiling pots

I understand the concept about the Rocket Pot but I have yet to see one in action and they are also 2X the cost of a traditional pot. I guess if you are one of those that needs to boil in a hurry that would be the way to go. I prefer the slow, drink-a-lot-of-beer method.

I have an 80qt. that I use for smaller gatherings and a 160 qt. that I can boil about 100 lbs. at a time in (without the basket).

The one pot I didn't care for is the one that is trough-like and the basket tilts out to dump.

Oh, and if you didn't know, the seasoning goes in the water and not on the cooked crawfish.

The size depends on how many pounds of crawfish you typically boil at a time and how much produce you add to the pot. It also depends on your boiling method. Some people like to put ice on their cooked crawfish to cool the water down and stop the cooking process. If that is the way you do it and you are boiling large sacks (40# or so) then I would go with the 100 qt. But if not, the 80 qt. would be fine.

My burner is a little too slow in my opinion, the regulator is only 10 psi. Can I switch out the regulator to a 20 psi and not damaging the burner itself?

Yes. You don't even need the regulator. Many people use a needle valve. Ace hardware has the 60 psi regulators. I wouldn't use one smaller.

Go to a place that builds burners and tell them you want one to boil crawfish. They will fix you up with the right burner. As for the pot Wal-Mart or Academy sells them or buy one online.

The pots are pretty much the same just depends on how much you want to boil at a time. The key is to get a good burner. I would recommend the 60PSI regulator.
