    Here are some ideas.


    I remember a picture on here a while back with an A/C unit and plywood but can't find it. Good luck..

    insulate a shed and put a small A/C unit in. Take the regulator out of the A/c unit as they will only let the room get so cold. A/C unit will also move the air around so the meat ages better. As long as you stay under about 38 degrees U will stay out of the danger zone. 40-140. My hunting partner used to have a small Sauna that we would use with an A/c unit to cool and move air. And we are both meat cutters
