that'll work if the fridge is in the 40'F range. . .
if it's in the 36'F range, it takes a week.

I also keep my fridge at 36F. And freezer at -6. I thaw my bird in a cooler of cold water.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

it's a newer model - no icing, etc noted.

an older model once did ice things in certain spots.... but this one seems to have more even temp control.

My 'Olde Model' will ice up some stuff, but not all, stuff on the top shelf, rear, at 38...


What's the advantage of 36 over, say, 40 ?

I don't cook a whole turkey any more. But I DO cook it in parts - like the legs, thighs. wings or breast.

I THIS case, whatever parts that I plan to cook, I defrost them in cold water while they are still vacuum sealed & go from there.
