Home made scalder
I have no experience with scalding but I do have some electric beer brewing experience. I built a 10 gallon boil kettle using a 4500W electric element at 240VAC. It takes about 30-45min to get 10gal of water to around 180 degrees and a good hour to get it to boil. Once it boils it takes very little to keep it boiling. That being said, I don't think it would recover very well at all. Once up to temp, I would foresee waiting 15-20 minutes between chickens to let the temp recover...maybe longer? A 1500W element at 120VAC would definitely NOT hold up...
Reminds me. I need a new turkey fryer lol
