I think the Seafood Cooling and Holding Rack is a genius idea! My father-in-law came up with the idea over 40 years ago. He passed down the original one he made to my husband years ago. It’s amazing how many Crawfish and Crab Boils that rack has been through. Sadly it fell apart the other day, so I decided to make another one.
The above picture shows my Father-in-law’s original Seafood Cooling and Holding Rack, with 80 lbs of Crawfish. Can you believe the rack above is really over 40 years old?
Here is the list of supplies you’ll need to make your very own Cooling /Holding Rack.
1- 8 ft long Galvanized Steel Rabbit Fencing with small holes
2- 8 ft long 2×4’s
4 Pack Galvanized Corner Braces with Screw
1- Box U Nails
Here’re a few tips for using the rack.
