Chillers are a bit like gun-safes.

As soon as you get a bigger one, it seems to automatically fill up!

Nice work on the foraging.

Nice chiller/coolroom.

Does one need one in Victoria this time of the year? Cold enough outside!

Or is that to stop the outside temperature freezing the meat instead?
Bloody cold down 'Mexico' way at the moment

ErikD in Norway had a chiller room in his house. Thought It was a very cool idea. But couldn't one just open the window in winter?!

Thought the chiller was on the blink last Wed, checked the temp gauge 5 C
Colder outside 3 C. Bit different to Darwin.

Should be a good piece of meat. That looks like a serious exit wound.
