    Buy a generator. They are cheap. Have enough fresh gas on hand to keep the freezers rolling until you can eat, share then can or turn the balance into jerky. You might also consider trading some for other stuff you might not have acquired.

    hope you like sloppy joes and spaghetti

    Here is the real deal.. if power goes off and your freezer is a chest style you have some time.. if it is a standup model... you have less time

    you need to eat, smoke, jerk, or can as much as you are able - or toss it away


    we had a freezer go bad one time.. it was a week before we noticed and I went down to clean it out... not much worse then spoiled pork and chicken. Wife asked if i want help, I told her no, no sense two people gagging

    Two hundred dollars. One twenty five on generator, forty dolls a worth of box fans and filters, spices, jars. You can charge to freezer, and make Box fan jerky at the same time. Oh, maybe more, for the jars and cooker, but can on open fire.

    We aim to get a generator.....but unfortunately, we're on a tight budget right now. The 40-yearl old washing machine just conked out, so we had to get another one.

    Wouldn't a new machine be a better alternative?

    Ahhh!!! We learned the hard way a few years ago! We are meat hoarders! Lol Our freezer took a shit on us and we didn't catch it for a few days! I cried as we threw prime steak away.
    Never again!! Never!!

    No power, too. No generator.

    You can't possibly eat all the meat. What do you do?
    I have several cases of jars here at all times. I'd just can it all, or as much as possible rather than seeing any of it go to waste. If I have some that cannot be canned, I'd cook it up, eat as much as I can, and feed the dogs well.

    They need to make some type of an alarm to notify you when your freezer pukes.

    This is just one of many available. Many cost less. Cheap insurance. And, of course, having said that.....I don't have one.
