Passed inspection.  Chain drain plug, handle, latches, rubber feet on the bottom are all decent.  Got a slight tight vac seal when closed with the gasket.  Yeti ball on a budget.

    Other than visual and operational similarities (chain drain, latches, etc.), did you test insulation capabilities?  That is, it looks cool and similar, but does it perform as well as a Yeti?  These are crucial questions as we approach Memorial Day at the beach.

    Aldi rocks.  They're driving down the cost of groceries in Richmond VA.  Them and Lidl.  Kroger is scrambling to keep up. 
    Richmond and Mathews County, VA. Large BGE, Weber gas, little Weber charcoal. Vintage ManGrates. Little reddish portable kamado that shall remain nameless here.  Very stable genius.
