and I've decided it's impractical for my needs. I'm selling it on ebay. If anybody is interested, check it out. It's a very nice kettle, I just don't know what I was thinking.

Actually, I do know... I was thinking "damn, that's a good deal"

So I'll pass on the deal.

Let me know if anyone buys that thing. I'll then recommend where they can get a 65 gallon stainless mashtun.
