Ziploc Jumbo bags for grain storage? [R]

Nov. 13, 2019

Was thinking this might be a good, economical alternative. And then storing these in a large watertight bin. I called Ziploc and they are air tight and food grade, measure 24" wide x 32" tall, 20 gallon. They are just over $2 each.

Anyone use these or something similiar, like a vacuum storage bag or something?

Like this.

That's ~100 gallon sized bags (you cut them yourself) for $18.

My awesome wife and family hooked me up with a bunch of sous vide gadgets. Is there anything else I need that you recommend ? [R]

Wow that's good stuff.

As has been mentioned, a heavy cast iron skillet is a almost a requirement for searing. Although look up "charcoal chimney sear" for some fun stuff.

Eventually you will need more of the food saver bags. I find the generic rolls work fine, such as:

Just picked up a Foodsaver. Do you have a good line on knock off bag rolls? Looking for something that can handle a 36 hour bath.

I think these are fine: To me they feel better than the FoodSaver brand

I won a $100 gift card at work. I am thinking of buying something nice for the kitchen. What is your most used item that cost you around $100? Or even if it was $200 or $300. What is your most used kitchen item? [R]

I have a Victorinox. I just got an Instant Pot last week and am slowly figuring that out. I have all the pots and pans I could ever use. I have a food processor, though it's a small hand me down one.

I have looked into some exotic meat from Amazon but it wouldn't be worth the $ per pound.

Any suggestions for an ice cream maker? If you have one, do you use it often? I want to make Parmesan ice cream and sweet corn flavor. I don't like to eat sweets that much and would most likely make it and give it away/sell it. I don't want to gain 100 Lbs. from constant ice cream taste testing.

What about a vacuum sealer? I have been looking at them but I feel that the bags would be an exorbitant expense. If anyone could talk me into a vacuum sealer, I think I would buy more meat in bulk. I have a chest freezer in the basement.

Also, a thing to hang your pots and pans from the ceiling, I could really use one of those because storage space is always at a minimum. If you hang your pots and pans do you feel it's a great increase in space saving?

Thank you in advance!

I bought these and they work great and last me a while (sounds like you may use them a little more though):

The nice part with the rolls is you can use as much or as little as you want. Good deal, especially if you have prime.

Another thought - if you can afford to spend a bit more on the sealer, definitely go for one that can handle liquid. I definitely regret not spending a little bit more on my first. Even just for foods/meats with some extra juices or a marinade it's a huge bonus. There are ways to work around it, but it can be a pain.

Regarding the sous vide - you can definitely use a normal pot. The poly carbonate containers are nice, but I didn't buy one until I had been using SV for a few months.

Bagging a Brisket? [R]

3 years agocmattei posted submission on sousvide.
June 19, 2017

How do go about bagging a whole brisket for sous vide, I plan to sous vide the brisket and the finish on a smoker. I'd really like to keep it one piece, I could split it up, I really don't want to, but if that makes more sense.... I can.

I have your basic vacuum sealer.

Also any thoughts on cooking the brisket? I was thinking about cooking it ahead of time, then icing it and chilling it until it hit the smoker a day or two later anyone see any issues with that?

Probably going 155 for 48 hours, going up to the cabin, to smoke it 2 hours away, I don't want to sous vide it on site, hence the cook and chill.

I made ChefSteps brisket and used these bags to seal a 15Lb Brisket. It was tight and I double sealed the ends to be safe but it held perfectly.

Chamber Vacuum Sealers [R]

3 years agohuffalump1 posted submission on sousvide.
June 5, 2017

I've gotten pretty sold on Sous Vide cooking. I have an Annova and a relatively inexpensive sealer which I can still return to Walmart for a full refund.

I haven't been that happy with the foodsaver brand (or the high cost of their or compatible bags) and am thinking about purchasing a chamber vacuum sealer. Sealing liquids is a big plus also. It's quite a bit more money but aside from Sous Vide I also like to buy things on sale so a vacuum sealer is great for that regardless.

I had a Vacuum Saver Game Pro inthe past but it gave out afrter about 3 years..another reason I am thinking of going with a more durable/different style unit.

So I'm looking on Amazon (if others know where I can better pricing please reply) - comparing Polyscience, Vacmaster/ARY..etc. on Amazon. Some big differences in the prices.

That said - I am willing to pay more for long term good quality equipment, even if it's 1K for a unit that can last for years and saves on bags.

Any suggestions from others with chamber sealers or any brand recommendations?

Not exactly what you asked, but offbrand bags are very cheap:

about 1/3 the price of foodsaver brand.

LPT: If you want to "vacuum seal" food, put it in a ziplock bag and submerge it in a bowl of water with the bag open above the water. The water will push the air out of the bag, and you can close it without any left inside. [R]

Another foodsaver container I like is this 4-piece set of vacuum Containers

It has a rubber button on top to let you know that it's holding a vacuum and so far I haven't had any leaks (Though if the seals get dirty I've heard a good fix is to use a q-tip to lube them with canola/olive oil to clean/grease them.)

The 4 sizes make it easy to store a variety of things (The tall one can pretty much hold an entire sliced up canteloupe or pineapple) and they're easy to wash. As with all plastic containers, don't hold tomato sauce in it because lycopene breaks down the plastic. I haven't had that issue with these containers, but I play it safe.

Full disclosure, I didn't pay full price for it. I had it in my amazon wishlist for a while and it went on sale in January. I managed to get the set for $41.68. Totally worth it.

Also, another good deal on the plastic is this. They're only 8 inches wide as opposed to 11 inches, but you get two 50' rolls for $20

Edit: better deal on the 11" rolls. Two 11"x50' rolls for $17.07

Also buy the plastic in bulk. I get mine on Amazon.

And always leave a sharpie next to your Foodsaver.

Vacuum Sealing Problems [R]

3 years, 4 months agoin3rtia_ posted submission on sousvide.
Feb. 6, 2017

So I used my older food saver with the food saver bags to vacuum seal a smoked pork shoulder to prepare it for an 18-24 hour cook at 164F. I put three seals at the bottom and top of the bag because I felt like being careful however, this apparently wasn't good enough as sometime around 16 hours the bottom seals failed. I came to find that the food saver bags are only rated for 160 degrees or less and for cooks 10 hours or less.

Do any of you have a recommendation on a better unit/bags to use that will give me a better seal to last through longer/high temp cooks? I'd love one of those chamber vacuum sealers but they're quite expensive realistically I can only afford a food saver style sealer.

EDIT: Here is the website where I found the information regarding the 160 degrees and 10 hours limitation. Also thank you to the people commenting on this.

EDIT 2: So I'm thinking its a combination of my older equipment and bags along with the stress the large pork shoulder was putting on the seals. That said it looks like I'm going to research buying a new vacuum sealer and bags so any brand or model recommendations would be greatly appreciated. My family and I tend to do these prok shoulders a few times a year so something that could handle bigger/wider pieces of meat would be awesome.

Where did you find that info on the Foodsaver bags?

I just did a Live Chat on their website and they said that their bags are 5 mil (as opposed to the standard 4 mil) and are rated for 185 degrees with no limit on cook time as long as the temp is below that.

That being said, the food vac bags get a lot of love on this sub, and they're 4 mil.

I will be buying those next, but I currently use these and they don't even say how thick they are, but I did Char Sui for a little over 8 hours yesterday with no issue. But that was only at 140.

I've got Amazon Prime and need new vacuum seal bags. [R]

Hey guys! I'm almost out of Foodsaver vacuum seal bag rolls so I'm looking on Amazon for bulk rolls.

I've got one of the basic Foodsaver clamp sealers, the 2244 I think.

Just want to make sure I get something that is for-sure compatible and gets good reviews.
