Hi everyone!

It has been some time since I have been on here I have been busy perfecting my BBQ. haha Seriously thou I have been reading about what is needed for stuff to compete and my question is about sanitary components. I will be building a trailer smoker for comps and I know a lot of guys build a sinks into the trailer. I have not come up with a design but what if I can't put a sink with the trailer. How do you do washing and cleaning? Where does the waste water go? etc...

Sorry if it all has been discussed but didn't really find much with a search.

Thanks

Just competed this past weekend where there was no access to a hose hook-up. Had to cart 5 gallon buckets of water to my site from a spigot. Even when I have a hose hook-up I still will use two large Walmart storage bins ($5.94 each). One will have soap water in it, the other plain water for rinsing. "Grey water" goes where the organizer tells me it goes. Ususally that will be a dumpster, drain, or into the grass if allowed.

Thanks guys!! It seems a lot less of a hassle then I thought. When the family goes camping we just boil some water and wash everything in a wash bin. Now it will be time to get creative and ad something to the smoker!

I started with a 12 gallon set up but quickly found out for a two day cook that was not enough.
We now carry 30 gallons of water and use a 32 gallon portable waste tank when needed.
I am also set up to hook to the promoters water if they offer it, under the sink is a ball valve that allows me to switch from my 110 volt pump to city water.




The gate valve is where I connect to the city water. You can see the drain dump under the trailer.


Our on demand Eco temp hot water heater.


This is what we use to catch our water.

Thanks KAM that is a nice set up. I have the idea of putting a hot water storage tank on top of the fire box to heat water and run plumbing from there to the sinks. Do you think the tank would get hot enough? A heat unit maybe the way to go I don't know. I am in the brainstorming stage so just looking for ideas and such.

Thanks!!

If you put a tank on top of the fire box the water will be very hot...boiling almost. I have seen it done on a few occasions.

I agree with Cory. You will most definitely need a pop off valve on it for the pressure.

Thanks guys! I didn't even think of the pressure valve but a very good idea. My thought behind it was that I would not need a heating unit and use the heat from the fire box. Also was looking to save a few dollars but if it is a safety issue then I go with a heater unit.

If your firebox has a flat surface on the top, just use a metal dish pan to get your dish water hot. If you have enough room, put 2 pans (1 for washing and 1 for rinsing). But the washing water is all that really needs to be hot.

Thanks Steve! Simple is a good way to go and I do have a flat fire box. It would be a good way to just get started.

KAM- What size trailer is your competition setup?

We have a turkey fryer pot that we would use to heat water on our firebox. We would then pour it in a 5 gallon water cooler with a spout and sit it on our sink and just use the spout to put hot water in the sink and use cold water to adjust the temp. It would stay hot for hours in that water cooler.

We now have an on demand water heater set up with a 5 gallon bucket to catch the water under the sink.

Ours is not mounted on a trailer. We just set it up around our prep table and smoker.
