Using a upright freezer as curing chamber

  1. Hi,

      I have a chance to buy a newer upright freezer cheap, I was wondering dose anyone see a problem using it for a curing chamber or has anybody ever used one. I will have a separate temperature control on

    I was getting ready to cut out freezer on my fridge and my neighbor offered me the 21.2 cu freezer. I appreciate any replies.

    Thanks Jim

    It depends on your freezer.  My ancient upright has the coils built into the shelving racks, which makes them non-removable. This makes it impossible to hang anything longer than about 8" long.

    I don't know if laying on the cooling coils would affect anything.

    The freezer you're looking at may be different.
