The seat top lid on this cooler is handy.  Since it’s not threaded, you can run a thermometer under the lid.  Check out these pictures of a brew day, using ThermoWorks ChefAlarm (Review) Thermometer Thermometer…

10 Gallon Rubbermaid Cooler – $44.87

10 gal. Orange Water Cooler

via Home Depot.  Model FG1610HDORAN 10 Gallon Rubbermaid Cooler.  This would make a dandy mash tun or hlt.

This is available for $44.87.  That’s been the case for a while and it’s worth mentioning again all on it’s own.  The difference I noticed today is… in the past (at least when I’ve looked at it), this has been available for in store pickup only.  I noticed today that it ships for free with a $45 order.  Add on 13 cents to qualify for free shipping.
