Portable meat processing building
« on: August 31, 2012, 09:42:48 AM »
Little project I am doing for my cousin, it's an insulated meat shack with rails. Going to put a cooler inside and electrical, all steel and aluminum, R12 insulated. He is going to trailer it, put his quad inside then take it out to his hunting camp with a genset, quarter and hang his meat then unload it at home after and set it up next to his smoker and process his meat inside and make his own jerky and sausage. It's engineered for a 5000lb 4 point lift.

Wow!!

I'm sensing a sideline business coming on here.

Good looking project.  I would love to build a small shed size meat shop at my place with a
Smoker.  And a place to hang game while friends hunt from my place.

That's really good idea for those Hunters that play in remote areas.

I am actually looking into building small cooler buildings for guys that want to hang their animals.

This is quite a bit fancier then I was thinking of building.

It looks really nice.

I am looking for opinions on what guys think are a good size of building and what kind of price guys would be willing to pay for one. I was thinking of making it somewhat portable so guys could take them into camp with them.

I am thinking about using a window mounted air conditioning unit to keep it cool so anyone should be able to run them off of a generator or if you have it at home it could be plugged into any normal house or garage outlet.

all advice is greatly appreciated. Sorry for hijacking the thread I just thought what I was doing was sort of similar to this but quite a bit smaller and just for hanging.

Pm me with advice if you want to keep it out of this thread.

I think for just a small meat locker where you wouldn't be processing any game 6 x 6 would be good, 8' wall maybe. Should handle a moose/elk or a couple deer.

         That is freaking awesome!  Don't think I could properly explain in words how jealous I am of your cousin right now lol.  That is the ultimate in convenience, never have to cut a trip short due to warmth and never have meat freeze on a cold trip and have to let it thaw when you have time to cut it.  Without any wood to soak up blood and stuff it will be easy to clean to what a heck of a set up.
