Keeping Food Cool at BBQ’s

One reason I dislike pot luck dinners and BBQ’s is because the cold food sits out in the hot sun and who knows what sort of bacteria starts to grow in 100 degree summer heat.

This weekend I saw a great idea for keeping the cold food cold at your next BBQ. Use a large rectangular plastic tub and fill it with ice. An under-bed storage box is the perfect size.

Don't let food go bad at BBQ's this summer. This is an easy way to keep the cold foods cold even when they are sitting outside during a hot summer day.

After the box is filled with ice add the bowls or containers of cold items and they will stay cold for a few hours, even in the heat.

  1. I’ll have to remember this! Great idea and we have some parties coming up.

  2. I saw the same thing done once with a round table and a plastic baby pool. I thought it was a great idea!!

  3. When I was a kid, my Dad used to go buy a small, cheap kid pool, put it up on a picnic table, fill it with ice and in would go all cold dishes and drinks :p At the end of the party, he would empty it out and whoever had the youngest kid who wanted it got to take the pool home and use it LOL

  4. Could you share where to find this particular blue tub?
    Thank you.

  5. Same as ben, where is this particular blue tub? Thanks much.

  6. For anyone wanting to know where to get the tub, just Google “blue plastic under bed tub” – a whole slew of them come up.

  7. Galvanized horse troughs work great too.
