I buy most of my meat from a butcher in Eagle River, Alaska. It takes a 30 min drive but it is worth it. The meat has no hormones and they will cut it to your liking. They don't have any "hanging"...

I had the same problem. I just pushed more tubing onto the can and they stopped. How far on the can does your tubing go? Try pushing it on further.

I recently bought a 40qt pot and am very happy with it. Lots of room on my 5 gal batches. But if you plan on doing 10gal batches you will need bigger. Might as well spend the little extra now.
