Default Craigslist score! (er, um, maybe not...)

Been watching for a good deal on a chest freezer to convert to a kegerator. Imagine my excitement when a 17 cubic footer showed up on the free section of craigslist today.

But there's a bit of a catch....


I think I'll keep looking....

Yeah.

Not only that, it's an hour away from my house, and I don't have access to a pickup right now so I'd have to haul it in the back of my Durango. I strongly suspect the smell would become a permanent feature of the vehicle.

And I don't even want to think about the cleanup job on the freezer once I got it home....

Imagine your surprise when after you clean out the freezer full of rotten meat, lug the freezer out of basement and take it home, plug it in and guess what.....she doesn't work

Yeah, one of my favorites that I see all the time is the ads for "free firewood" which actually translate to "come cut my trees down and haul it away for me so I don't have to pay a tree service." Usually with the catch that you must take all 7 trees, not just one.

And I've been seeing a bunch lately for "free walnuts". Code for "come clean these damn things out of my yard...."

Well if you plugged it in and re-froze the meat it wouldn't smell as bad when you cleaned it out....mmmmmm... rotten meatcicle.....
I would not put it an inclosed vehicle. I had a raw turkey leak some juice on the floor of my truck, after steam cleaning and fabreezing the crap out of it, I finally had to cut the padding out to get rid of that smell. A year later I get an occasional whiff of it if the carpet gets wet.

Yeah, as appealing as a free 17 cubic foot freezer sounds, in this case I think I'll hold out for something in the hundred dollar range if that's going to be the cost of "free".

Did you guys see the episode of Mythbusters where they left a pig (I think) carcass in a car for several days and then tried to get rid of the smell? They couldn't get rid of the smell and ended up having to sell the car for much less than what it was worth if it was odor-free.
