I'm using a secret high tech method...ok, I'll share.

I'm putting a short 2 x 4 under one end, then swapping it under the other end when its time to turn.

Crude, but effective.

Yes, its a 48 qt cooler.
It has a single bulb for heat controlled by a water heater thermostat and has a seperate hard wired computer fan for constant air circulation.

People tend to think I'm fibbing when I tell them I get consistant temps with a water heater thermostat, but heres a pic at 99.4*
