    I found this interesting, I did not remove the 2 1/2 gal pot from last night but covered it over still sitting on the sand / steel base. I removed the water when it started to boil, but I found that the temp of the thermocoupler was surprisingly high… I have also noticed that i was loosing a good deal of heat from the top so I added a bit more fiberglass insulation on top, after removing the boiling water. Plan to recharge this and try again with 1/2 of the amount of water…
