Hey guys. I had a thought about trying to flash freeze patties before packaging them. If everything goes as planned this year I might be cutting an elk or 2. I just bought a quick patty maker. I will be cutting the elk up at my family cabin that has a small chest freezer and a fridge that is from the 60s. Last year we cut an elk and barley fit it all in the freezer. It took a long time for all the meat to freeze.
My thought on making a flash freezer for patties is to get some dry ice and have that in a cooler and put the patties on a cookie sheet with dried ice under it then have a block that is supported over the cookie sheet.
Has anyone tried anything similar to this and how long do you think it would take to freeze them enough to package without them being 1 big chuck of meat.
