Default Sub $10 Drip tray idea.

My drip tray needs are met, but because I love you, I'm always thinking about your beer needs.

While I was at Lowes, I spotted this smoker box, which could easily become a driptray.



Top has the requisite holes.


Deboxed. It's about a foot long.


The top opens for cleaning.


Figure out a mounting and you're all set to go!

The only problem I see is that any spilled bier on the top surface will spill over the edge of the hole filled cover making a mess down below.
If that cover were cut down to fit inside the box with small "L" or 90 degree tabs, 4 of them and Tig Tacked on this would hold the cover at 1/8" below the box body. This would make for a totally dry spill tray. Just an idea as the price is great.

Oh this is perfect. I'm going to use magnets to put it on the keezer. Won't be strong enough to set a beer on, but I can't drill so it will be good for catching drips, and removable for cleaning.

A comparable "actual" surface mount drip tray that size starts at about 40 buck and goes up from there.

Nice idea olllllo, I think I may just have to steal it and claim all the credit

That is a good idea. I have one of these boxes for smoking in my grill. It works great as it's intended also!

I just ordered a drip tray from barproducts.com for $14.95 - it SS, 19.5" inches long - a steal.

Wow that was easy:


Two packs of magnets and two smoker boxes plus tax for a grand total of $25.44.
