Outdoor cuttingboard setups

4 posts in this topic

Looking for a Christmas gift idea and recalled the Excel Xtruder board and wall mount. Anyone have experience with that setup or can recommend something that you've set up at your house/cabin? Looking for something that isn't permanently set up so it can be removed and easily cleaned.

May not what you are thinking, but my set up is a good cutting board,( got mine on line; 24x30x3 in thick) then I bought one of the small plastic folding tables. ( think it's a 4 ft.) Can be set up almost anywhere and very portable. Has adjustable heights so one can work standing or on a stool.

The cabelas outdoor fish cleaning table is pretty nice, and it is on sale for 59.99 down from 99.  I think it was in the 'gift' catalog that just came.  Hooks up to a hose and has a drain to a bucket.   Folds for storage.

 If I was forced to clean fish outside I'd probably get something like the Cabelas cleaning table.

That would be inside a screen tent with a light. Thankfully I don't have to clean fish outside.     

That might be because I don't make a huge stinking mess and clean up after I'm done  :) but if I was married to some of my buddies they'd be cleaning fish outside too.


I use flexible plastic cutting boards and clean fish at the kitchen counter. 

Clear the counter off and empty the sink.  Put the garbage can next to the counter and have your fish wrap out.   Clean your fish(be sure they are dead before they hit the counter) and put the guts and carcass in the garbage can. If its Summer and a few days away from garbage day I freeze the guts.  Rinse your fish in the sink and then wrap them.  Bring your cutting board to the sink and rinse it off. Now fill the sink with soapy water and a splash of bleach.  Wash the cutting board, knife, counter, and wipe down anything else you touched then empty the trash. No one would ever know you just cleaned a mess of fish.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
