I have been thinking for some reason to thaw one out & maybe maybe grill it. ??

IDK. might want to wait till I either get a smoker or gas grill with more then one burner.

I don't know, Barb, you should be able to load up the side of the big Weber for a nice long indirect cook...ok, so maybe you'd have to add to it a couple times, but if you're using the hardwood it lasts a long time.

But if you're thinking of a new gas grill, I highly recommend the CharBroil Infared one. I love mine. No flare ups, no burned stuff and heats up super fast so it uses less gas for most stuff.

I have been grilling turkeys for over 30 years. Actually, they cook faster on the grill than they do in the oven. Personally, I make mine on a charcoal grill rather than the gas grill. I love the flavor that the smoke imparts.

I usually have a turkey in the freezer that I use in the summer. However, last year, we didn't get the turkey during the sale time and I didn't have one. Sad

We have turkey several times a year since Brian smokes 'em. Delish. He cruised by the grocery today and told me that turkeys were $1.59/lb. I guess they'll be coming down soon.

Wish we had a separate freezer like you do, Barb...

Heck, I have to dig stuff out of the freezer in my new French Door fridge. Yep, I wouldn't even mind a little chest type one -- but no place to put it. Brian's friend who was visiting suggested -- no lie! -- blocking the back kitchen door that leads to the deck with a freezer. I just looked at him and said, "Yeah, Jimmy, and once I do that, I guess I'll drag a sofa out on the freaking balcony, too!" Brian just looked at him like he was crazy.

I know someone who got a stacked washer/dryer unit (the Whirlpool one, looks small but is actually full size). They used the additional space for a small chest freezer.....the laundry was in a closet-like space behind bifold doors none was seen when the doors were shut but readily available.

DD has a stacked washer / dryer. It fits under her steps up to the second floor bedrooms. Their place is small, but they have two good sized bedrooms upstairs. She at least has a freezer under refridge on top. It does take up space from the kitchen, but her builder boyfriend built it inside the wall a bit. The rest is in our greezer here as she needs it.
Those stacked washer dryer units are expensive.
Theirs had a bad bearing and seal that was causing it to leak. The replacement assembly was 387.00 plus shipping.

I told her BF to bring me the bearing and the old seal.
I matched it with a same # bearing for 12.00 and the seal was a automotive transmission shaft seal...4.88
Shipping cost me 5.00. So for about 30.00, we installed the bearing and seal. The company said it was mposible to remove the bearing. We froze the bearing with dry ice, and it practically fell out with a light tap. Winner!!!

Tina and I would have bought them a new unit, but 30.00 was a better deal. Luckily!

Those units are almost full size. She loves it.

Thanks so much!
Since I was a little kid, I always would take things apart to see how they worked. Not Putting feathers in my own hat, But I've had a great start with Dad being a Master Plumber, and teaching me that trade.
I worked very hard as a kid. When other kids at 7 years old were on summer vacation, I was working and learning the Plumbing Trade and installing Boilers eating systems, and installing Bathroom fixtures and complete plumbing systems.

I later joined the Navy and worked on Boilers on the ships. I transferred out of the fleet, and became a SeaBee working in the construction batallians.
I ran desalinating plants in GTMO ( Guantanamo Bay U.S. Cuba )

I came out and ran Large Air Conditioning plants in Communications and Computer stations.
I had some formal training and I was so happy to have that when returning to civilian life. LOL LOL
I worked installing and starting up large A/C systems .
I later as I got older, worked designing electro-mechanical systems in building energy management .
There were a lot of other jobs in between. My hobby was auto mechanics and fixing just about everything that broke. hahahahahahaha....
Gimme a bag of elastic bands, and a roll of duct tape, and Will try and fix it. hahahahaha

I'm here to disagree wholeheartedly. And I loved hearing about how you came about being so handy.

My expensive blow dryer broke many years ago (I got one like a hairdresser uses -- they're not only powerful but have really long power cords, which is an asset for me). I was so disgusted that I got a screwdriver, opened it up and looked for what "looked wrong." Well, turns out I fixed the darn thing. Took me forever to "smush" all the little wires back in and out of the way until I could close it up and put the screws back in. Poor Brian had to hear about my fixing the hairdryer for well over a year, I'm sure. It STILL makes me smile when I think of it!

I'm Proud of you too! .... Now this takes me to the episode of I Love Lucy, when Lucy fixed the car with a bobby pin. LOL
