Thanks - I'll check it out.

I have my base built and stopped to build the shade structure first. I'll start a thread soon when I actually get going on the oven.

Can someone post a link and/or a pic of an ice box, like the one mentioned here? Thanks

So, are you all building plywood boxes or something a little more elaborate? I knew what an old-fashioned ice box was but I was wondering if you were talking about something nicer than a plywood box for your outdoor kitchens.

I do BBQ catering and competitions. We have two Carlisle boxes. Another brand is Cambro.



Stainless steal pans slide in on rails. Usually these boxes are used to keep food hot for hours. But they can also be used as an ice box. We will put a bag of an ice in the top tray and anything we want kept cold in lower trays.

This could be another option to keep in mind.

Sure. Nowadays it's mostly for ice sculpting or ice shaving but it is still available.

If you can find a supplier - party shops and caterers are your best bet for knowing where to find it.

Or you can buy your own block ice maker...

Or just use 8 or 9 blue ice packs....
