You would need to install a heating device to cycle on//off and shut the AC off/on to keep the coils from freezing up, if you want it to freeze it should cool to 40 - 45 other wise.

Makes sense, I suppose that's what the "cool bot" cabelas sells does.

All of walmarts hamburger has fat added to it. It starts out as cull cow burger at about 1oo% lean and then adds fat trimmings to get it to stick together and add flavor.
With real burger from a well finished beef there will be as much grease as if you just fried bacon.

40 to 45 would do very well for the purposes I think?

Serious question here. How many people you feeding with that half, and how long does it last? For the three of us a whole only lasts a little over a year.

My better half and I are it. I do give some to my daughter and a bit to my dad, but we consume the vast majority of it in a year. We bought the last half right at a year ago. We were out of burger and the best steaks about a week ago. We have a couple of roasts, some stew meat and some tenderized rounds left, at the moment. Maybe 20# total. We pick up our half on Saturday. We planned it out about right, me thinks

Thanks. I regularly hear people talk about getting a half and wonder just how little they eat. A half isn't as much as many people think.

exactly! and there are some that only get 1/4. we butcher a whole steer, 2 hogs and about 50-60 chickens every year plus anything we hunt. but we rarely eat anywhere but home.
