On Bobby's recommendation, I picked up a ball valve and bulkhead, and a 90 degree elbow instead of a pickup tube for my flat bottomed kettle. I failed to ask him the best way to orient it when installing it: should the opening face the bottom of the kettle directly with a minor gap, or should it sit at a downward angle, with one edge resting against the bottom of the kettle?
Just want to make sure I'm drilling the hole in the right place!
