cheapest brew pot

Does anyone know where to find the cheapest 7 gallon (or so) kettle? I'm in the Toronto, Canada area. Websites from the US tend to charge way too much for shipping.

Question on partial mashing and a request for recipe help

1) I'm new to brewing. I want to do partial mashing. I plan to use a grain bag, heat the water in a seperate stock pot to the mashing temp and then stick in a preheated oven (heat and then turn off) to mash.
