Rocket pot is what you need. Not BSing you. Cuts my crawfish time in half. I use a double jet burner I got from Academy. For some reason I would freeze my tank after 1 batch. That hasn't happened since I got a rocket pot. I thought it was not going to be worth it but I am a believer now.

Everybody recommends Goodwood Hardware in BR for "higher quality" stuff, but a kingcooker pot and double jet burner from SAMS works fine though.

seconded. I have a 100qt and it is night and day vs my old thin aluminum pot. Heavier gauge pot contributes more than the nipples at the bottom, IMO but either way its much better.

re: crawfish pots
My rocket pot was a flop, after a couple of uses the nipples on the bottom started falling off - great customer service but ended up sending a couple of them back for a refund, maybe I just got some from a bad batch or something. I use Bayou classic pots 120qt, their double jet burner hooked to an 80lb tank and run a high flow regulator. I cook a lot so that is why I use an 80lb tank. This set up has been the best for me, it isn’t a race to cook them more of a social event so I am not worried about saving a few minutes to bring the water to a boil.

They have a solid selection, but bring your first-born son to pay the bill.

pretty much the same setups as i run. i have a fairly decent size crawfish catering operation and unless its over av2 thousand pound boil, we do all of ours in 120 bayou classic, double jet burners and big bottles. we cook 2 sacks at a time in those pots and aside from taking a little more time getting the water to turn initially, its almost impossible to keep up with it

+1 on the rocket pot, however I think we are missing out here...

No colors needs to get us some from China...

Rocket pot is where it's at. Pair it with any decent double burner and it'll boil harder than any other pot out there...in about 10 minutes. Much faster than a traditional pot. I can usually do two boils and soaks in the time it takes a traditional pot to do one boil.

Do people want this? I get it if you are a commercial cooker, but the best part of a crawfish boil is manning the pot and drinking beer..... I dont want that shite to take only 10-15 minutes

re: crawfish pots
that also would worry me about RP... don't get me wrong I'm sure with an occasional use, or even average use they would be fine, but for me, id be scared of that. we cooked over 10k pounds in the bayou classic pots this past season so they get banged around and moved and traveled and washed more than a little. generally speaking time to boil is not a real killer for us just bc we are getting everything else prepared and set up while waiting on a turn. i suppose i wouldn't mind having just 1 RP though for those quick 1-2 sack boils that we sometimes will do

you cooking that much? they might save you a ton on fuel. but they might also break from all the banging arond. IDK.

yea... at least 10,000 pounds in conventional pots. if its more than say 2000 pounds for one boil we will use a big boiling trailer, but for the small jobs i just use the regular pots and burners, and to be honest like it that way. very well may save some fuel on the front end, definitely could see that, but once they actually turn its all 2 guys can do to keep up and don't lose the boil so in the long haul I'm not sure it would be advantageous bc you couldn't keep up no how. but... like i was saying for doing small batches of cook and soak, i definitely could see where it would be cool to have a RP. as far as the durability, well i certainly can't debate that as we've never used them, but i can tell you the BC pots certainly catch hell on and off the trailer getting thrown around lol
