If I do a removable heat stick, then I don't have to worry about shielding the heat right?

Does anyone know if a gas range needs 220v? If it does, then I probably have 220 right there also.

Not usually, but there is a possibility that there is a outlet already there. Take a look, good luck.

This is what I meant about the GFCI.

You don't have to install a new receptacle into the wall, it's built into the cord. So the only thing on the gfci is the brew pot.
I would not pay $40 plus shipping for a GFCI equipped extension cord. There are much less expensive alternatives. Here's one plug in adapter from Radio Shack for about $9.00. Home Depot also has one for just a bit more IIRC. You can also build your own using an off the shelf GFCI outlet, a box and cover and some appliance cord. That's what I did. I've used it quite a bit for group brews and camping. Cheap insurance.

It was just an example for simplicity's sake.

I understand. It was not my intent to discount your post. That is a nice extension cord. I'm a sucker for gadgets and I can't help but take a look at those kind of links. The sticker shock got me though.
