We might cold pack some meat and pressure cook it and experiment with cubing deer and packing vegetable and spices for ready made quart soups or stews you just add flour too. I still don't understand why you can't have a slight bit of flour in the water.

Adding flour or other thickening agents to a product for home canning, prevents the heat from penetrating to the center of the jar interfering with safe processing to destroy the bacterial spores that cause botulism. Never add thickening agents to a home canned product.Nov 9, 2017

Shoot me a PM with what you are looking for and I can see what I can do, non-commission based and out of the ProDesk so no incentive for me to take your money for a vaporware product.
Thankyou sir

We started canning a lot of our venison. It lasts a very long time. Then we don't have to worry about a freezer. Doing a little more each year to build a stockpile.

Check with your power company for removal - Ours paid us $75 for an old frig and $25 for an old dehumidifier - and they came to my house and picked both up.. I think they might take freezers too..

My freezer has been looking at me kinda sideways. I am starting to feel like you are right. I don’t trust it.

Freezer failures are a huge deal. BTDT, had the stink in my nostrils for days.

There are things you can do to mitigate:
  • Replace the outlet the freezer is plugged into with a GFCI with an alert. If your freezer is in the garage, it should be on a GFCI circuit anyway.
  • Plug in a power outage alarm into the same outlet; it'll beep if the power goes out.
  • Use a smart outlet system that signals you if it loses power, or smart breakers.
  • Get a fridge/freezer thermometer with an alert. If the temperature drops below a level you set, it beeps to alert you. AFAIK this is the only method that will alert you to a mechanical failure.
Obviously, if you're on vacation or something, the audible-only alerts aren't going to tell you about a freezer failure. Maybe if you can set up some kind of cellular or WiFi alert that messages you when there's a beeping in the house—acoustic sensor? Then you could call a neighbor or friend to take a look. Your alert system and your internet would need to be something on a battery backup in case the whole house goes dead.

Offered this up to Original Poster but they want a stand up freezer. Have this sitting at my Pro Desk st Gaithersburg Lowe's for $374.06 first come first serve, thought I would give the gang here a shot at it first. PM me ASAP as I can only hold it for so long.

I have an extra Refrigerator/freezer and a Stand up freeze down stairs. I bought a sensor after reading this thread. I bought this Amazon unit for two freezers, and place on in the freezer section of both. Both freezers seem to have the sensor holding at 1 - 3 degrees and I set the alarm for 15 degrees. If one dies or as we have had before the box of chicken wings shifts and the big freezer door doesn't latch. I'll get an alarm up stairs. We got a black refrigerator up stairs. I bought the black one and placed it on the side of refrigerator the dog food it on. I see it twice a day if I look at it. It will beep if the door gets left open or one dies. Two AAA's for the base unit and two AA's per sensor needed.

Plus I plan to can deer more and start practicing more this year with recipes.
