Here they are after the smoke. I took them off at 148 'cause my tri tip was getting done quick.

Thanx all.

I'm only gonna slice one.

I guess now's a good time to ask; Can I vacuum seal and freeze the other? How long will it last? If I don't  freeze and just refridgerate, how long do ya think it will stay then?

I'm sure I'll eat them fairly rapidly but I was just wondering..

Vac seal and freeze the second one. no more than 4 days in fridge.

How long will they last in the fridge?

First one probably won't make it to the fridge.

The other one might last a day or two---3 days tops.

Ok so I got one vac-packed and into the freezer for later. The second one I sliced up and vac packed into one or two days worth of sandwich meat. I'm hoping to squeeze a couple more days of life by vac packing.

How do the roast beefs at the deli stay good for so long? I don't think they are cured at all.

This lunchmeat making is fun!

 Thanx and you're welcome. It's nice to post up some q when it comes out well..

Give it a go, it's really simple since you don't have to cure the meat or do anything else funky..
