Well a recommendation for a fridge will do nothing to help you. You want a fridge to correctly cool bbq meats. There is no such refrigerator for that duty...not if you want to do it correct and safely. Sorry.

There actually is an electric appliance for this, it's called a blast chiller:


Good luck in finding a used one though, look for restaurant liquidations maybe

Blast chillers are the best way to properly cool. For sure. Expensive, but the proper tool for the job.

They use air convection to cool rapidly. If you could figure out to get some fans inside a freezer, you could use some of the same benefits of the blast freezer.

Redneck ingenuity.

Did you look for a used equipment dealer, as I recommended? Literally every town or at least state has one. It is a good business to run. They snatch up all of the CL sales and restaurant liquidations, clean them up and mark them up. They are still a good deal, even after the markup.

In terms of cooling food, bbq is no different than any other meat that anyone in the world works with. I know we like to think that bbq is magical, and it is, but it is just meat.

Most places don't use a blast chiller, although they are very cool...and expensive. Cool it down as ServSafe recommends and put it in a fridge. NSF fridge will do, if you are legit. Any fridge will do, if not.
