    I might have to try thing. The nice thing about ding it this way is that you could place the tubes between the pieces of meat to cool them off faster.

    A couple of questions for you. Do you have any problems with the PVC cracking over time when freezing it? Have you tried scheduled 80 black PVC instead of regular scheduled 40 which is the white pipe.

    For a case like that you could always build a screen that would sit on top of the tubes and leave the drain plug open. That and a plastic liner between the tubes and meat and you should be set.
