Milk Crates?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I can get some of those plastic Milk Crates in the Twin Cities area? Been looking and cannot find any retailers that sell them.

Want to use one for strapping Ice Rods to and tackle storage for my one man flip over. Plan is to bungee cord the crate to the seat as I pull the flip over across the Ice, and then be able to easily remove it when I'm fishing and to bring my stuff into the house after done fishing

I was at the huge thrift store in Sun Ray Center off of 94 in Oakdale last week and they had 2 real milk crates.

Thanks, I do know where that Mall in the Sunray Shopping Center is, but a little to far to drive. Will check out Manards and see what they have.

I was at a major grocery store and the milk guy was doing a delivery and I stopped him and asked him for 1 and he gave me 2 of them

I work at a major retailer and see piles and piles of milk crates on a daily basis. I always laugh at the writing on these things. They all say return to owner...Felony if stolen, yada yada yada. Yet, if you look at them, they're all from different companies. So Kemps may have crates from 50 diffenent distributers grin

Awesome that you were able to get a few from "the source" smile

The Menards Crates are a little longer then the ones from the milk companies, they will still hold a 20# with a little room left over.

You can sometimes find abandoned crates behind restaurants and grocery stores. These are not the ones by the loading dock! In college I seemed to have more crates than actual furniture. I think I only have one or two left...... 15 years of garage sales tend to weed out the crates.

    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
