Where do you get your metal pans?

Discussion in 'Slicers, Grinders, Tools, Equipment' started by graphicsman, Sep 29, 2011.

  1. Last smoke session i went through a ton of alum foil pans.  Since im doing this more i thought about investing in some good restaurant style metal pans for prep and other things.  I found a store that carries kitchen supplies and for one deep pan will fit one butt and the pan itself was like 11.99.  Longer pans that were about 3" deep that would be great for ribs were 20.99.  Wondering where you guys get yours around these parts?

    I found perforated pans for Smokin K, but can't remember where.

    I'll PM him and I bet he has the contact.

    Try a search for Used Restaurant Equipment, they buy up from restaurants that went under. The prices can be 25% of new and with afew minutes sorting through their stock you can find some almost new. They have other goodies like Grinders and Slicers too...JJ

    I would check out restaurant supply stores and also check used restaurant supply stores. If you have Smart and Final you should check them too.

    Resturant actions are good places to get this kind of things. I have seen lots of 20 to 30 full sheet pans go for less than $20.00
