Good point - looking back I shouldn't have used those examples and just used a reference that if it's not practical to prep raw meat under them (due to heat given off), it's probably questionable.

Now typing that I realize it's a huge gray area - especially based on time of the year and if a team is under an ez up or in a trailer. As I think it's fairly common for teams to use halogen lights to prep under in the spring and fall.

How about this gray area - if a team goes out to buy a specific light that gives off heat specifically to use while box prep ... maybe they should have to use that light while prepping raw meat on a July afternoon in their EZ up too
