Robert - thanks for the photos. It makes sense now!

Now I have to figure out how do to this effectively with a glass Big Mouth Bubbler (no port of course).

You won't be the first to do this.  Basically you start with two holes in the lid...helpful, right? :) There are surely posts and videos out there to help.  One thing to remember:  with glass, never apply more than 1-2psi.  I used to use glass carboys, and the paranoia about this was one reason I switched.  But just be careful, even that low pressure is plenty to move beer -- when you think about it, it's like a lot of weight plunging down on your beer.  Good luck with the project!
