Garner AC,

The gang on the Forum ganged up on me about using foil encased insulation due to the potential of trapping moisture underneath so I ended up punching hundred of holes in the foil as a means for any moisture to move through.

Mine has plenty of breathability I believe. The seams arent taped, just stapled using these staples and there are inherent small gaps but i may poke some holes too!:

We always do sausage. No idea why it didn't show up in the video. Artichokes may get a try next year. Green beans? ?? Let me think about that,,,,,,,,,,,,,, no!

Ha. Mushrooms are good too, assuming you like them. My neighbor is big on adding lemon oil to the water as well as the ice trick you used. I've never noticed a difference. I like adding Zatarrain's boil in the bag to the water especially for shrimp and crabs.

Get something like a fence paling and hammer half a dozen nails through the end so they protrude about 1/4 " then slap that foil silly. I've tried the foil on my oven between the insulation and the outer shell. I only perforated the foil in two patches about 3" in diam. Now when the oven gets really wet and I'm drying it out the outer shell gets quite hot at those points, indicating that steam is passing through there. It is a pain and makes the oven harder to dry out. I have not used foil since.
If you are doing an enclosure there will be less of a problem removing water and the foil will work better as an insulation layer because it is not in direct contact with a conductive surface, but I think you should still give it the perforation treatment.
