Default just curious if i am the only one....

stupid enough to put a 16 1/2 lb brisket on the shelf of the freezer with the temp control making it impossible to get out without a power tool.

bought a new blade for the sawzall

The story gets better, I put a kielbasa underneath it to keep the coil in the shelf safe. Didn't matter sawed through it and into the shelf doing my part to kill the ozone by releasing the Freon. So 5 hundred bucks later I have a new larger freezer. The moral of the story is put some thought into meat placement, and if you do fark it up be very careful with your power tools.

LOL

I had bunch of meats stuck like that but never resorted to my saws. I would've turned down the freezer temps some or unplug the fridge for a little bit.

Did you say the magic words "I got this" to anyone before making the cut. That or " I know what I'm doing" usually work for me.

Well played.

Seems to me like unplugging the freezer and letting it thaw some would have done the trick. I have a feeling you needed a excuse for a bigger freezer

I cut three inches off the end of the brisket to get it past the temp controller. It was 2 inches thick at the cut, frozen solid, don't think the hair dryer would have worked. Thawing everything in there wasn't an option.
