Thread: Sourcing robust freezer bags

  1. #1

    Sourcing robust freezer bags 2

    Can anybody point me in the direction of somebody who sells freezer bags both strong and large enough to take muntjac or roe joints? I was given a few butchers bags just recently and was amazed at just how much thicker they were than off-the-shelf domestic bags. Trouble is, they seem only to be available from trade outlets and in trade quantities. I have no access to the former and have no need of the numbers supplied with the latter.

    My thanks in anticipation of any suggestions you may wish to offer.

    You could ask your local butcher to add a few to his next order and pay him what they cost. Alternatively, I've recently bought a vacuum packer off ebay for 79.00 and the bags are thick and the finished result is brilliant. I was very suprised as more than one person said that the cheap Vac packers were rubbish.

    Cheers chaps!

    Lee, I took a look at the Tesco variety on my last visit. Seems I shouldn't have prevaricated after all. I'll try them for starters but will keep the other suggestions on file for future reference.

    Oh, and by the way, they'll be Norfolk deer in them bags if I'm lucky. Had a 'phone call last night from over your way, "There are munties everywhere!". Sounds like the breeding programme is still working then.

    I found that by double wrapping them tightly, there is less chance of freezer burn.

    Thanks again, chaps.

    Wayne and David, I followed your links to Scobies and could have easily spent a fortune! I particularly liked the look of these -

    These are what I use. They are meant for a vacuum packer and work well. When you use the lighter ones from the supermarket etc, they eventually crack and allow moisture through to cause freezer burn. Treat yourself to a cheap 70 to 80 packer and you will not be disappointed.
