If you plan on competing, keep a pair of Channel Locks handy. We had a cap rust on to one of the pipe nipples. Didn't realize it until we were getting ready to light the drum @ 2 AM in the parking lot of the Topeka Expocenter for a contest. Not the easiest time to bum a pair of pliers from a neighbor team!
As soon as I got home from the contest, I replaced the pipe nipples w/ high heat flexible magnets. Works like a charm and have had zero issues managing temp!
