Hi Urban Griller, I'm new here too.
Like your

My friends are convinced that it takes exactly 7 minutes to chill a hot beer down in an ice chest full of ice. If I add salt to my ice chest, will I be able to have a cold one before they do?

I'm going to give it a

You can bring beer to a drinkable temperature in 2 minutes, this is a trick we use at piss-ups all the time. One of my ice chests is marked "Salty Water" so the unsuspecting don't use the ice in mixed drinks. I also use a wind up egg timer so the beer doesnt freeze, all my mates are used to the routine now!

I have a question or two; how long does the ice/salt mixture last roughly?
How important is the ice to salt ratio?

Urban Griller,

Welcome... I attended the New Hampshire state BBQ championship this past summer and one of the vendors was a team called Aussom Aussie Australian BBQ out of Sydney... ... their ribs were simply amazing! Also had an opportunity to try their pulled pork which was also unbelievable.

Welcome aboard!

Salt will melt ice quicker (thats how it works), thats why they use it to melt ice on roads. I've found the ice is mostly gone in 20 to 24hrs but the food is still frozen, if I'm fishing for a week or so, I replace the mix every day to keep everything frozen (this is also a good way to bring frozen food and creature comforts from home (like ice cream).

If you watch the video I demonstrate how to draw a simple graph which will let you control the temperature by varying the amount of ice from -32F (-18C) up.

I'll make a Doc out of the graph on the weekend for anyone who wants it.

That would be great to have that graph ... thanks mate for sharing!

Was talking to my brother, Triple B (Brian) over the phone yesterday and he made a small batch using 10 oz. of ice with 3 oz. of salt.
Temp. went all the way down to -35º F ... way cool! icon_biggrin.gif

Guess I just answered my own question. Just looked at your website, and saw the receipes for roo burgers, and bbq roo, etc. PDT_Armataz_01_11.gif Bet it tastes like chicken! Course aligator tail tastes like pork.

I'm betting Roo tail would be as tough as brisket ... needing a low-slow cook!
Love to try it except Roos are scarce in Canada icon_exclaim.gificon_lol.gif

Roo is extreemly lean and gamey like venison. It needs lots of help, makes good jerky though!
