Vacuum Sealer

  1. New question instead of using a brine and it's about being prepared.Do my rub and injection and then vacuum seal the butts.Do you think that I would get the same results? How long then could it stay in the cooler for before I smoke it.

    I don't vac seal any meat I'm prepping....  rub or injection....  My thinking is.... vac sealed meat has been squeezed very tightly where there is little or no room for the rub or injection to migrate throughout the meat.....   A zip bag with daily rotation is what I use...  Alternately, meat in a vacuum container has had the meat fibers opened up for rubs and injections to freely migrate throughout the meat....

    When you say "cooler" are you speaking of an ice chest type cooler....  depending on the ambient temperature, I'm not sure they keep the cooler temperature below 40 deg. F...  the safe zone for storing food...
