Default How long will a cryovac pack last in refrig?


My butcher tells me 6 weeks but I have never tested that. He takes
delivery of briskets every day so are always fresh from the packer.

Longest I have kept cryo of brisket in the fridge is 4 weeks.

When I'm sble to get fresh briskets I keep them i my beer fridge for at
least 30 days b4 cooking--don't think another couple weeks would hurt
anything
of course ymmv

Uh, I was under the impression that you could store for *years.*
I thought I heard/read this when I bought my Tilia Food Saver.

In the *freezer* yes. See the subject and OP again.

I personally wouln't let meat get more than 1 year old though. If it
hasn't been eaten by then, I'll probably never eat it.

I'll probably get fried for this, but since you said frig and not
freezer,
mayby I'll get off light. I tend to keep cryovac meat in the freezer
for
months, not just weeks. Maybe I don't even know what fresh meat
tastes like. If it ain't feezer burnt, I call it good. I try to vacuum
pack
everything I bring home as soon as possible. Gonna blanch and pack
a quart of snow peas tomorrow.

Average Joe Freezer is nowhere cold enough to completely keep fats from
going rancid. A year is really pushing it.

Fat going rancid requires oxygen. If the meat is completely sealed this is
not a problem. More important is having a freezer that is not frost-free.
The temperature swings of a frost-free freezer cause the goods to
deteriorate a lot faster.

That's one of the biggest 'ifs' in the world. Show me a plastic
membrane that's O2 impermeable and holds this mythic complete vacuum
for a year's time-then we'll talk.


Ice buildup in a non frost free frieezer acts as an insulator and
lowers the freezers efficiency-net result -warmer freezer.
You have to open the door on either kind.

Isn't that what the FoodSaver is supposed to do?


You do not know how freezers work. You have heard of thermostats perhaps? If
the ice buildup does lower efficiency, which I tend to doubt because it is a
very poor insulator, the freezer would still maintain the set temperature
even if the compressor has to run a bit longer.

You're trying to reduce the amount of cold lost in the air transfer between
the freezer and the room when the door is open, right?

The most efficient way to to do this is to fill the freezer with bags or
boxes of air. They cool off MUCH faster than water, and they stay cool lots
longer than the time you have the door open. And that's all you're after.
Ice sounds good, and it works, but it takes a lot of energy to make big ice
from lots of water. But I can't say that it costs a lot, we're talking a few
cents here, I think. On the other hand, if you have a power outage all that
ice gives you more frozen mass to keep things cool longer.
