    Member "Simple" told us about a cheaper vendor for bags.


    I bought rolls and quart sized premium style bags.

    A great deal..

    The bags are much more heavy duty than Food Saver bags.

    I have the less expensive Seal a Meal machine.

    These bags worked much better.

    Here's some pics of todays seal fest of 14 pounds of bacon...

    Kindly notice I sliced against the grain... something that never crossed my mind til a few days ago...

    Have a great day!!

    The premium bags are a little nicer and only a couple pennies more per bag.

    There's a coupon code for 10% off this month

    Sept. 10% off code 10SEPT2011 at checkout.

    I saw this on an earlier post.  I was very skeptical.  Then more and more trusted members came on saying they are good.  I am stocked for now, but I might have to take advantage of that September discount.  Another post to save.  LOL

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Ditto to Craig..........I used mine today, for the first time. I like them better than FS. Much better bag.

    The peppers liked the bags better also......I could hear them squealing in delight..........Dave

    Dave, did you order the standard or the premium. 

    Most of the reviews here seem to be about the premium.

    This company is in Taxifornia, so Taxifornia residents will have to pay sales tax, I am sure.  The current 10% discount would pay our sales tax.

    I am thinking about ordering the standard product.  I will be posting a review when I have done that.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Thanks for the link,fpnmf, and the discount code, Todd.  I ordered a case of the premium rolls.  Much cheaper than I can buy locally, even with shipping.

    Venture, evening......I ordered FMQ100 Quart size full mesh vacuum sealer bags........17.95 + ship of 11.35, still beat FS by almost 50% at wmart prices when you include sales tax.  I think they are the standard.....I thought the premium were for "wet" products and since this first "go-round" was veggies and garlic I thought they would suffice. Not sure, sh*t I'm getting too old to remember where and why I was going toward the bathroom..........

    You'll be there someday....stop laughing.......

    Anyone know how the premium "VacStrip technology" really works for juicy foods/marinades vs the FS bags? I typically use the paper towel method on my FS bags, and I'm wondering if these would remove that step...

    Will they stay sealed? I have always used FS bags and when done they are all sealed up nice and I put in the freezer only to find a few weeks later frost on the inside of someof them because they apparently were not sealed. And doing jerkey some times it just puts a hole in the darn thing and it won't seal.
