I've got a frozen 11 kilo gammon. How long do you reckon it will take to thaw out in a fridge?
I'm getting conflicting advice on the web.

Thanks

11 kilo?
11kilo! Wow. Days.
That's the size of a huge turkey. In a fridge 3-4 days at least

I know, it's a monster. We're having a do next week just to get rid of it. The amount of space it's taking up in the freezer is ridiculous.
Have you got room in your fridge for 24 lbs of gammon, Rocky?
drop it in a bucket of cold water to thaw quicker

Just about Tilly. It's in a second fridge that we've got in the utility room. I've had to take the beer out to make room though.

Tambo, I think that would take too much looking after.
I'd give it at least five days. It won't matter if you have to cook it earlier than expected because it's defrosted.
put it in car boot or somewhere safe outdoors
I slow cooked a frozen leg of lamb, delicious & no probs
day
24 h
yeah I wd do the bucket thing for 24 h
Peter, 24 hours will be nowhere near long enough.
Rocky, does it have a bone in?
Question Author
I've got to cook it overnight on Friday. Fingers crossed it'll be defrosted by then. It'll never thaw in 24 hours, in cold water or not, and the boot idea would not be good, if the sun comes out the heat in there will get very high.
Question Author
No, no bone.
I'd put it in the fridge tonight.
wrap it in electric blanket or shove in oven to thaw.
I agree with the bucket and water idea. My mum does that with her turkey every year. Usually takes around 36-48 hours.
No PP, way off the mark - although stated with your usual confidence so it must be right
