Thanks for all your help!
I have the same exact 62 qt. pot and this is my "mini" pickup tube.
Sorry, I don't have a pic handy with the element installed. I used a tee so I can install an anode in the long end as described here to help prevent element rusting: http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/fo...=283775#283775
Even with the anode installed, I have plenty of room for the element.
BTW...the steamer insert is just AWESOME!!! It sits on the lip near the top of the pot and leaves plenty of room for teh element, pickup tube, thermo and anode.
