Hi. I'm hoping you can help me. Is it safe to sear a roast, pork or beef, and freeze it? If it's safe, does the meat need to cool completely before I stick it in the freezer? We love to go camping and my husband wants to go in the colder months. I seriously doubt he's going to enjoy grilling when it's nasty out, so I'm thinking I'll be packing the crockpot. Thanks.

safe - yes.

cool completely - cool yes, the 'completely' bit is not so important

...camping crockpot - my experiences with "camping" do not include 110v convenience outlets, so you'll have to invent.

There's an old technique for that but I forget its name. Basically, you fill a box with straw, add hot rocks and your dutch oven. Cover with more straw. Cover the whole box and let sit for 6-8 hours. Residual heat does the rest.

Thank you. I was worried about food poisoning. We camp at Georgia state parks. The sites have electricity and water hookups. And toilets and shower houses. Unless you like to rough it. They have those sites too. Someday I'll try the Dutch oven and coals, but I'll enjoy the crockpot first. I like to have everything frozen before we go so I don't have to worry about food spoiling. Thanks again

I have eaten a turkey that was stored in my deep freezer at a temperature appx. much be low 0 with no ill effects and had no freezer burn. Remember that article years ago when some people are meat from a frozen mammoth. The answer I believe in keeping meat longer than usual, is to turn your deep freezer as far done as it can go to get below 0 and refrain from opening rarely unless you are planning a meal and anticipate any other foods in the freezer that you will be eating within 3 months after you have placed it in your refrigerator's freezer. When in doubt though throw item out.
