Obviously, as the meat dries, the moisture has to go somewhere.

My fridge is (not frostfree) and builds frost at an alarming rate. Is there something I can use to capture that moisture before it affixes to the cooling plate?

I've seen some mention of using a pan of rock salt - does anyone have advice or history in this area?

Thanks! Defrosting the fridge every two weeks is becoming tedious.

It's time to turn that fridge into a beer/ whatever cooler and buy a frost free.

I've been nibbling at that idea. A full size frost-free fridge/freezer of my own choosing, down in the basement (where my office is) and storing my aging beefs (and pork, and lamb, and venison, and duck).

I've never really thought of it before - do the frost-free units need a drain? I don't think that they do. Maybe they defrost often enough that evaporation can handle the defrost runoff.

No drain needed.

I like samsung. At this point you may consider a new samsung for your kitchen and move the old kitchen fridge to the basement if it is frost free.

Also if you are into samsung in my area Lowes has the best price. If you are a veteran you also receive 10% off.

.ps. For upright freezer I would go with whirlpool.

Just curious, Charlie since you are a professional in that field why does Samsung stand out in your opinion? Features, dependability, guarantee or other?
