View Full Version : Parotection meat after preped

06-05-2012, 08:12 PM
What do a lot of you do to wrap your meat after you prep and trim to keep it water tight for when you put in in the cooler. I have used 2 gal baggies and garabage bags. Any idea would be helpful.. Thanks

2 gallon zippies, in a foil pan, on top of ice. Not all floating around in the cooler soup. Dont trust them ziplocks that much.

In stainless pans with foil over the tops and into a Cambro. I use freezer/gel pack and place them above/below/between the pans.

Yup...+1. Once you go Foodsaver, you'll never go back to Ziplocs for comp meats.

I use these Reynolds turkey oven bags for big briskets and the next size smaller for pork butts,,,twist end tight and use the enclosed zip tie

I have a fridge so it's not an issue for me. Whatever you use should be food safe. Garbage bags are not food safe unless you first wrap in film or foil. Why risk a flavor transfer to your meat. Best solution is a cambro with ice in a pan on the bottom. Then you can use foil pans.
