    Outdoor sink / clean station

    I need an area outside to clean grates and other grill related items. Any outdoor sinks or anything like that where I can create a small area for cleaning. We do get a decently cold winter so has to be able to handle cold weather when not in use. Not sure where to start. Any help would be great.

    If it is really cold, as in subfreezing temperatures, you will either have to put it in a heated facility or be able to blow out the lines or drain after each use.

    As for the sink, check salvage yards or restaurant supply stores for a used commercial stainless sink. Or keep an eye out for restaurant auctions.

      Do the plastic outdoor sinks with feel last?

      Macktechie I don't have any experience with them. If they are made for outdoors I'm sure they will last, but not as long or as durable as steel. Come to think of it, I saw a new stainless steel sink at Costco in Wenatchee, I think it was a couple hundred. But you can, or at least could have, picked up a used commercial for half that. Here is a link to the Costco one, and a larger one as well. https://www.costco.com/CatalogSearch...ess+steel+sink

    Depending on the height (relative to your sewer line) and distance (from the sewer line) you may need a sump pump to pump the waste up to the sewer level. They require an electrical connection and are limited to how high (their head) they can pump.

      What about something like this that you could run off a garden hose and disconnect when it gets cold:

        Would plastic sinks with feet work?

          Not sure if this would be an option for you or not. https://store.grillagrills.com/produ...for-bbq-island

            Does anybody have suggestions for tubs/containers suitable for submerging grill (and or wall oven) grates to soak? I've done the "place the grate on top of a tarp/plastic bag" thing, but didn't know if others had better advice)

            Not going to use the master bathtub again.

              I use a water heater drain pan (Lowes/Home Depot). Not sure they make one big enough for the oven grate, but works for round BGE grate and smaller vertical smoker grates.

            We plumbed one from our patio into our house plumbing. With the ability to shut it off, and drain the lines for winter.

                They make fold up prep tables that you hook a garden hose up to it. Maybe put it away after each use.
