Alright fellas. Maybe it's 'cause I'm way up here in Wisconsin, but I sure didn't see anything like grease pots at WalMart. I was looking in housewares/cooking stuff. Did I miss something here? Thanks in advance,

Try Kmart. The rolled lip on the Kmart GP goes to the outside and the Walmart one goes to the inside...some folks say it's more sanitary b/c food doesn't get stuck in there. Whether that makes a difference or not, Kmart has grease pots, too.

I think the wally world Grease Pot is no longer being stocked at wally world - Kmart pot is better or if you can't find that check with anti gravity gear for their pots which are similar

Rob, you didnt say whether cost or weight was the biggest concern, but a pot that addresses both is:
the website is closed for maintence, lol

When they open again, check out their Al pot. It's super light and usually around $8. Not a weight-weenie so I dont know the exact grams, but it's good for me.

Here's one from my new favorite gear site if u need to cook for more than one, or if your a big eater:

Amigi, Campmor has a bunch of different Billy's under the manufacturer name OpenCountry. I have a couple mixed in with gear, good "enough" quality. We use them to melt larger quantities of snow.

I saw JimTankers grease pot, thought he said it was a bit tippy...can't remember exactly.

I used to get a lot of my cooking gear at Goodwill or Salvation Army.
Just look for a lightweight pot that you can take the handle off easily.
I often found gear that in my estimation, was better than the grease pot.

Actually I have the pot out of an old Boyscout cook kit. .7L I think.

Gotta love Goodwill shopping!

Its not really tippy when I'm using that (AWSOME!!!) ION stove that I have.
