Well I have another small update on something I did with my set-up

As you know I was building this set-up on a budget and though I wish I could have afforded some drawers from Forrest I went the route of trays as you can see from the pics on the first couple pages to save some money.

Well with these trays there was more room behind the trays that I wanted to utilize as much as possible and found this worked out perfect for me.

I got these from Orchard Hardware and Supply for $3.50 a tray. I bought 5 of them (there are 6 total wire shelves) since I have one of the wire shelve (3 from the top) that has one large bag of KL to give me some Rh towards the top and I also added another Oust fan right next to this bag for some circulation up top since the only fan I had before was at the bottom of the cooler. These trays are clear and fit perfect right in that back section of wire and doesn't slide around or fall out. I got these since I was running out room a bit and wanted some more storage for overflow. I will be drilling some holes in the trays for more circulation soon as well.

Here are the pics of what I did ... the first shows my wire wine shelf pulled out with my SC tray sitting up front like normal and the new clear plastic tray in the back that fits perfect in that little section. The next pic shows what it looks like with the SC tray removed and the last one shows the plastic tray pulled out of the unit to get a better look at it if maybe you decide to go the tray route like this cause of cost and want the extra space.

All in all with the Spanish cedar trays with handles I found on clearance for a buck and change at Lowes and the clear plastic trays my storage costs only cost me about $95 for everything!!! Ya for around $130 more I could have had Forrest Amazing full set of drawers but this was a good start and once I get the funds together to get some wineador drawers I will be looking to sell all of this to another brother looking to maybe to do this same set-up.

Take a look at what I did and like always if you have any questions about anything I am more than happy to help a brother out!

Well I am finally done tinkering with my cooler and it's fairly full and ready for the year of smoking.

Here is the final product of my work and my stash

Oh My God...

I love the way you just used to regular shelves and attached your trays to them. Creative and clean.

Your Liga Privada drawer made me lol... I have only had the No.9 but I am sure the rest are just as good.

I did a pretty accurate count and as of right now I have exactly 400 sticks in there .... which is the 7 SC trays and the 5 plastic overflow trays in the back.

I could fit about 50 or so more in there once I stack to three high on a couple of those trays I am only 2 high.

I always say that with my set-up you can go about 400-450.

Never thought I would fill this thing up but I'm getting close and just about broker than hell.

Thanks for all the comments guys.

Amazing Chris! Nice collection as well!

Anyone in Europe know where I can source this model? I want to move my collection from coolers to a setup like this one.

Chris: working on a 280E setup similar to yours. I've cleaned it w/ a distilled vinegar widedown, washed it down with unscented dish soap and aired it out. When it isn't running, I have no plastic smell. When it is running, I get the plastic/new motor smell. It's been running for about 4 days. Any tips on getting rid of that?

I haven't tried the newspaper trick yet. The next step after getting this squared away is putting some empty boxes and DW in. I ordered drawers about a month ago, so they should be ready soon.

Thanks for any insight. Your setup looks great, by the way.

Hey Chris, I just picked up my 280 and just finished the 1st wipedown with Baking soda and water, going to do a few more tricks that have been mentioned above before I start the filling process. Have you sold are are you ready to get rid of your shelves yet? You have been an incredible help in the process so THANK YOU!!
