I recently purchased the SS brewtech 15 gallon kettle with the intention of doing 10 gallon batches.. but due to lack of carboys, I can only hold so much beer at a time. Has anybody has experience doing 5 gallon batches with a BK like this or similar? I'm not concerned with the thermometer placement, just performance, I'm sure it would be fine just looking for opinions on doing 5 gallon batches in a 15 gallon kettle.. also opinions on the 15 gallon kettle as I'm aware it's cutting it pretty close for doing 10 gallon batches

I too have a 15 gallon kettle and do both 5 and 10 gallon batches in it. No problem.
