How many pounds is it? I took mine out three days ago so it could thaw in time.

Takes 24 hours to thaw 5lb in the refrigerator. If its in the freezer u may want to consider soaking it in a sinkful of cold water for a few hours so itll be ready by tomorrow.

3 pounds thaw in a day, is the rule of thumb.



but you could fill your sink with cold water and let it thaw that way. the water must be cold, not hot or warm. and you want to change the water every 30 minutes

But you can do it in COLD water, you'll have to replace the water often though
