My wife asked me to get the kids out of the house. So we are out of the way while she scrubbed the house. Well she just called and said that the door was left open on the stand alone freezer.... grouper, snapper, ribeyes, deer meat, lamb, roasts, chicken all gone! Man there went alot of money down the drain with alot I can't replace for a long time. Ugh this just sucks...

I feel your pain Beentown. About 1 1/2 months ago I cam over to find the breaker had poped where my deep freezeer plugs into. 2 deer gone! Oh and the smell, my God!!

Told my middle son to take two bags of groceries down to the freezer couple months ago. Steaks, chicken, etc...
He took the bags down, but just set them on top of the freezer. I guess I left the part about putting the bags IN the freezer out of the instructions.

Man same thing happened to us, I was fortunate enough to catch it in time before a total thaw out. Hate to hear about it beener.

Maybe we can get a couple of us together and at least fill you up some burger.

Thanks for the offer Hoyt but it will give me more motivation to hit the woods harder this year to restock.

The funny thing is the biggest loss to me is not the high priced stuff like the ocean fish and such but the deer sausage I made. I do everything in processing my deer down to making about three or four different type of sausages stuffed in natural casing. Love it and can't replace it. I think I may have been the dumb ass to leave the door open to top it off...

Unfortunatley I think we have all had something similar. Our freezer was TOO full and it iced over from poor air circulation. Luckily we caught it before we lost everything.
