Default Storing Meat After Trimming

For those that trim your meats the night before, how do you store them until inspection?

I know that ziplock has two gallon bags. Have you ever tried those? Do you think that they would hold a standard size brisket or a large pork butt?

I stored a 9 pound brisket in one this weekend. You could probably get 2 butts in one.

I vacuum seal ribs, chicken, and brisket and either trim pork on site, or put the two butts in one of those big ziplocs

Ziploc makes bigger bags than that. Try their XL bags - 10 gallons. You can put 4 butts in them, or 2 monster briskets, or a half dozen racks of ribs no problem. Save the 2 gallons for the chicken.

Whatever you do, please pay attention to cross contamination: Don't put your chicken in a bag, getting some on the outside of the bag, place the bag in a cooler of ice, and then store your parsley in that ice, for instance......

ace hardware has the giant ziploc bags. They aren't labeled as food bags, they're marketed for storage. They work great thou. I don't use them, get all my meat from a butcher and he puts it all in clear plastic bags with twist ties. 1 Cooler for meat, 1 cooler for everything else.

We use HEFTY brand 2.5 gallon zip bags. The 2 gallon ziplocs don't seem quite large enough and the really big bags are pricey. You probably won't find them at your grocery store. The 2.5 gallon bags are $3 per dozen at walmart. BJ's carries them too. Not sure about Costco or Sam's.
