A trick to keep the burrs out of the copper or CPVC pipe is to put a 1/2" wood dowel through the pipe before cutting the slots. Fewer burrs are created because the wood acts like a backing for the saw cut. The burrs that are created are mostly removed when pulling the dowel out.

I used copper, slots down. My Dremel made short work of the metal. I've never had a stuck mash with this setup, doing up to 36lbs of grain at a time in my cooler.
