You may be overthinking this Lawrence. Make sure that metal is A) steel and B) pretty thick and C) not painted. Don't bang into your pot or you'll break it. Don't charge more than 40 lbs at a time with your size equipment.

I just ladle mine in, have for forty years.

If you really want to get fancy, make an auger on that thing. Factories do it that way with big equipment where the charge is 100's of pounds at a time.

Nice work I might add!
