There is a risk of compromising the texture by refreezing but I don't think it will be a major issue.

Thanks. That's what I thought. As long as you refreeze it right away you should be good. Or didn't thaw it on the counter overnight ;^)

even better than low price is free. i got one from grocery delivery. no room in freezer. cooked it, ate some, gave son and granddaughter some. put the bones, etc in freezer. i am thinking making into soup at a later date. now that is a bargain.

You can freeze it again as long as it has been completely cooked. But if you are not going to cook it right away, but want to thaw it out just enough to get only the parts you want, work on it so that you can get them and then pop the rest back into the freezer.
