It says Ball Valve kit $40 - is that just the parts or it comes installed if you buy that?
And lastly, any special deals for the HBT faithful?
Oh yes these are a very heavy duty kettle with the tri clad bottom. THe others were not. That is the kit with the hole drilled. Installing these kits is as easy as pie. Shipping would be a hassel to ship it installed. But I can build stainless steel diptubes and false bottoms that work killer in these kettles!
As far as any special deals?? Let me see what I can do. I am not really making much $$ on the kettles themselves because I only charge 9.95 for shipping and they run about $23 to $26 to ship. Maybe we can do a combo special deal. kettle, weldless kit and diptube, special with free shipping or something like that? If your game PM me lets chat.
