I'd go as far to say that anyone with a SS kettle is disqualified from this thread.
My previous kettle was a ss 4 gallon from dollar general. I think it was 10 bucks. I still use it for biab pm

90% of us have ghetto rigs...coolers and plumbing parts? how much more ghetto can you get? At least you have a stand! I'd say you are on the higher-end of ghettoness!

Yeah....if there's a stand involved, a pump, or more than two vessels out of metal, I don't think you qualify for "ghetto"....

Other potential disqualifiers: quick disconnects, multiple burners, proper air handling, just about any sort of direct-control for fermentation temperatures, etc....

Here's my first all-grain batch on my ghetto set up - both are fraught with peril.
