One of my favorite kitchen purchases:



I use it in the freezer and figure it helps to freeze stuff quicker. (Ever sit on aluminum bleachers on a cold day? )

Gets a lot of use in general. I just used it earlier this evening.



Get at least two.

Did you get a new freezer before everything thawed?

Next time with your new freezer, put the brisket in there still wrapped in its cyrovac package, and it will not freeze to the racks. You probably could have broken it loose by pulling or prying on the point end instead of the flat. Hopefully lesson learned, ( albeit a $500. lesson ).

Blessings,

Omar

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I have blown a hole in the O-Zone the size of Texas. I happen to work in the refrigeration business though. I know that moment when you realize that your power tool just made a hole in a refrigeration line. One of those things you never get used to. Like getting shocked.

For some reason I am a little disturbed (kinda) by that truss job you did on that chicken. I'm confused now.

Yes, sears is a mile away, it would have been nice to do a little research and shop around though.

Yep, that was my thought "Here Dude hold my beer and watch this"

Would of been a prefect time to defrost said freezer and clean it out, just saying' it would still be living

Looking forward to your write up: "My $30+/lbs brisket cook"

P.S. Is it too soon to tell you that you need to remember to always cut your brisket against the grain?

Doubt if it would have mattered much. I think all home freezers sold in the US are made by one company, just sold under different brands.

OK, this was supposed to quote the post about buying the freezer at Sears. Do not know what happened to quote.
