samc,

Where is your temperature probe in your set-up?

Burglar,

Sounds like a picture perfect BIAB efforts (except the chilling screw-up. Your not the first to do that!). FWIW 80% is not unheard of with BIAB, but that mostly depends on the crush. ...

I agree about the probe location. I assume your receptacles and power cord will be coming in from the back. You could put your probe back there as well. That will keep the front nice and clean...

Although one of the issues I mentioned was cost, looks like that is not a big deal either.

Here's a l6-30 cord for 20.00. Seems pretty good to me. Anything wrong with this cord for up to a 5500W...

Thanks guys!

I was leaning towards the l6-30s anyway, but just wanted to get some other opinions.
