No Pot for No-Knead

I have the dough fermenting on the counter and realize I don't have the right size pot. I have a 4qt cast iron chicken fryer and I have an 8qt aluminum Dutch oven. Can I use either of those?

So long as there is no handle that might be damaged by the high temp you can use either one.
