OK folks. Many of you camp and cook outdoors for large quantities of people. I'm looking for a stand-alone propane fryer unit. I really only need the stand and the burner/regulator unit. I already have a cast iron skillet and an aluminum fry pot with basket, but I don't have a taller pot for frying turkeys or crawdad boils. That would be a plus.

I've tried a couple of the cheaper units from Academy Sports and Bass Pro, but both of them produce a very yellow (not blue) flame that leaves the pots very black and sooty. All of their units have the same regulator and cast-iron burner assembly, so I assume they all smoke.

Any recommendations will be appreciated.

Wasn't cheap, but I love my cajun fryer. I have the 6 gallon model, which allows turkey frying also.

Darkstar burner is what I use for brewing and cooking. 54,000 btu. I can get 5 gals of water boiling in less than 10 mins. Less than 50 bucks:

Some of the reviewers complained of soot; others not. What has been your experience with orange flames and soot?

No soot with mine. The flame I get is white-ish blue.

I found a Camp Chef Pro 30 on sale for $40 off; couldn't resist. I'm very pleased. Great cooker, flip-open utensil shelf/table, and no soot. I've been cooking sausage and eggs for breakfast almost every day on it, with a cast iron skillet. Tastes great cooked outdoors and the house doesn't get all hot and oily.
