After reading several threads on the Igloo 50 quart cube cooler, here's is my solution! I used four layers of 16"x24' Reflectix around the outside of the cooler and used "great stuff" foam for insulating the lid. I will post how well the mash temp holds later this week!

clean set up. just wondering, how much temperature were you losing in the mash tun before you put the reflectix on the outside? i always had sufficient insulation in those types of coolers.

The burners are blichmann and I got them from brew bros. My cart/dolly I had speed rack west cut to size. The cart itself is 24x60x24. I got all the precut steel and dolly for $60! I actually did all the upgrades to the mash tun before using it. I read a lot of mixed reviews on the temps, so I went ahead and insulated it!

Just a follow up on my mash tun...

I hit my strike water temp at 172 F
And maintained my mast temp of 154 for the entire hour!

...It was a good brew day...
