    Hossfly replied to a thread Meteorite in Our Town
    I think a potato heated in anything and wrapped in foil, placed in a vacuum, would immediately boil out all water and therefore take all available heat energy with it.

    If you can find something very close you might just need to sand or file it down to your exact size. ID doesn’t need to be the same just outside dia, because of what slides on it.

    Excellently good results, what I did with that boolit with the hole and thermocouple was just tap down with a hammer or squeeze with pliers or vice to hold secure. Use several different size boolits to suit what your cooking.

    Thankfully the powers that be have downgraded the forecast to be cat 2 when it hits, that’s way better than the 3-4 that was forecast yesterday. Still bad storm about to hit, get ready or get out.

    OS OK, you are wise to head those cautions, I’ve worked with that insulation doing boiler work for 30+ years and still do. When I just look at it I start coughing. Still have several rolls of it in my shop. Very good high temp insulation, was used...
