Ah! That's a good idea. I hadn't thought of that because I'm building my own cord with locking connector on one end. But McMaster sells an inline GFCI rated for 20 amps (part #7228K12) that I can wire in.
And it seems that two GFCI's in a row (one in the cord or toolbox and one in the wall) may not be a problem, but could lead to nuisance trips. I think I'll wait and save up some $$$ to buy the inline GFCI for a separate power cord. That way I can use the correct cord as the situation warrants. In the meantime, I'll only brew on protected outlets.
