Default trim at home re-comp question

when you trim a brisket at home, what are you storing that big piece of meat in? I have 2 gallon bags...not going to fit, Id wrap it in cling wrap but then it leaks (not marinade but the regular juices). I'm trimming, not seasoning or injecting...just trimming

I trim the sides down to fit in the box, and then it get vaccum sealed in the food saver, so you can make the bags as long as you need.

You can always go to lowes and get those giant ziplocs. I think they have 3 and 5 gallon bags.

^^^^ what Timmy Mac said.

For me, trimming brisket is the easiest of the meat to prepare for comps. If time is too short, I do it on site.

Chicken takes a bunch of time, for me anyways.......

The 2.5 gallon hefty bags have worked great for me in the past. Even on larger briskets (18-20lbs) they fit.

Unscented garbage bags work well. I usually double them up.

Food saver works for me. Right now they are on sale at Costco (with a coupon).

When I get a really big brisket, I tie it to the hood of the car like a deer on the way to the contest.
