    Brisket staying fresh with out cryovac

    The place my butcher orders from messed up and didn't put the brisket I ordered in a cryovac. Will it be ok in my fridge until Saturday when I plan on cooking it? I really don't want to freeze it.

    Of course it depends on how fresh it was to start, but I would think yes as long as your actual fridge temp is 33-38 degrees.

            Nothing really all that magical about the cryovac bag. It protects from outside odors and prevents further contamination but unless the meat was cooked or irradiated, it will still have some bacteria on it and can still spoil if it gets warm. You could also dry brine it now for a Saturday cook if you're worried. The salt will slow surface spoilage some. You'll be fine. Enjoy!

                If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                slow n sear
                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill
                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                kareubequ bbq smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
