  • In the Refrigerator (40 °F or below)
    Allow approximately 24 hours for every 4 to 5 pounds
    4 to 12 pounds 1 to 3 days
    12 to 16 pounds 3 to 4 days
    16 to 20 pounds 4 to 5 days
    20 to 24 pounds 5 to 6 days


    In Cold Water
    Allow approximately 30 minutes per pound
    4 to 12 pounds 2 to 6 hours
    12 to 16 pounds 6 to 8 hours
    16 to 20 pounds 8 to 10 hours
    20 to 24 pounds 10 to 12 hours
