    Yeah, I am not sure about the top of a rubbermaid. But I assume they are pretty universal. The 12 Qt that I use is often paired with the silicone lid, on Amazon.

    Thank you Spinaker - my 8qt is a Rubbermaid so will pick this up and a 12qt.

    barelfly I use three different containers. Use an 8qt, 12qt and a 22 Qt. The lid fits all of those containers. I have used a cooler as well. You can cover the cooler with foil and it will work, but it can still drip. The above option would be nice too.

    Spinaker are you using a 12qt container? I have an 8qt and it’s not big enough for larger items. That’s where the cooler comes into play, but what size are you using something different.

    I do like that lid though for my smaller cooks.

    I got one of these. It fits most cambro NSF containers. I have zero evaporation problems. It has a port for your circulator, and it seals very well around it because it is silicone.

    Thank you! Hahaha, I have no experience whatsoever with openscad but I’ll take a look at it on the PC and see what. Can come up with. Could be a fun project.

    Thanks again for your generosity of sending the files!

    JCBBQ thanks for the idea. I’m off to wrap!

    Update, this works like a charm. Thanks for the suggestion.

    No. I don't have an Annova. I could, however, send you the OpenSCAD files and you could play with them to modify it for yours.

    OpenSCAD is free and available at: http://www.openscad.org/

    If you don't have a friend that has a 3D printer, you could use 3Dhubs. There will be someone in your area that would be able to print it for a small fee.

    https://www.3dhubs.com/

    I have sent you a zip file with the OpenSCAD files I used. With a little fooling around, you should be able to modify it for your needs. You will notice that the bracket has a a center target (to mark the hole center) that is designed to be cut away with side cutters after use. Remember that you have to oversize holes a little bit because the come out slightly smaller when printed.

    Of course you can always contact me here if you have questions. I am by no means an expert with OpenSCAD, but I've been fooling around with it for a couple of years, and can usually manage to make what I need to.

    When I SV for 24hrs or for a long cook I always cover my pot with plastic wrap. No problems whatsoever with evaporation.

    Pretty dang impressive! The SV community is coed, btw. Along with Potkettleblack your best instruction will be from fzxdoc.

    Very nice bracket! Should maintain a really long cook (say 48hrs for a brisket!).

    Thanks for the compliment! :-) The only problem is that I would have to buy one of EVERY cooker to model them! I would have to sell a LOT to make that up.

    Dude you made that? It looks custom molded. Man I’d put that out there for sale....
