Hey everyone. I'm going to hot smoke some venison backstraps for a buddy at work. Should I wait for them to cool before vacuum sealing or seal them hot? I won't see him till next Monday and I'm doing them Thursday.

In my opinion let them at least get warm  or to room temp I would think vacing them hot would continue the cooking process.....I think

Myself.. I refrigerate over night before sealing... my thinking is, that some of the juice gets squeezed out of warm meat... everything kinda solidifies when refrigerated...

PLUS.. It makes the fridge smell better for a few days... :biggrin:

One time I let them cool in foil and he reheated in a bag in hot water. He said it was really good. I suppose I'll let them cool first. I also think it may squeeze some juice out.
