    My walls are 10' high, but my cupola opening is only 28" x 6' while my roof pitch is 9/12. I think the big difference is that TapTapTap had wood under the steel roofing. The first year when I had the...

    Nice video, but just a couple of suggestions. Not a good idea to show (or use) a galvanized tank. Second, you will do lots better if you have the woo ready to go in before the door is opened. Every...

    That height will be no issue, but as Collins said, you must have a funnel suspended under the steam stack with a drain run to the hood gutters and then out. Any steam stack will get condensation...

    I didn't find the complete specs. I see 212F max, but don't see anything about food grade. To me it looks more like a car wash pump but I may be wrong. The price is good, but only if it is safe to...
