When stuffing the cool for summer picnics and tailgating it’s important to remember to properly ice. In the summer heat it doesn’t take long for things like mayo and hamburger meat to start growing bacteria if not kept cool enough.
Here’s the rule – a half of a pound of ice for every quart of cooler. So, if you’ve got a 40 quart cooler, you’ll need 20 pounds of ice to adequately keep the temperature at bay.
Happy Summer Picnicing!
