Mostly for steaming shellfish, frying chicken . . . What are the best brands? How many btu's should I look for? Thanks.

  1. Don't know how many BTU's, but those turkey fryer set ups should be plenty.

      Yes and no. Some are better than others.

    2. I'm about ready to buy one right now. The two I'm contemplating are both Bayou Classic -- the SP-10 and the SP-1. I'll be using mine for steaming lobsters. There are some good videos on this web site that explains the differences between the various models.
