Reinforcing Ceiling Joists for Meat Gambrel


Hi,

I have a two car garage, attic is accessible, and I'd like to install a screw hook and hang a meat gambrel on one side to make cleaning / skinning deer easier.

I'm not a carpenter, but mechanically inclined. I'm sure I need to reinforce some of the joists above where I'd like to work, but don't know how. Please advise.


Thanks

Add solid wood blocking, the joist size, connecting 2 joists on either side of the hanger joist.
Add connecting bracing from the joists to the attic rafters above.
