Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Bags for Foodsaver

I can get standard 8x12 bags from work for $.0907 each. The Foodsaver ones are $.50 ish each. Its a 3 mil not a 4 mil like the FS bags. the case has 2000 bags in it, and its only myself and my wife so a bag that size does 2 portions for us no problem. Does any standard vacuum bag work in these contraptions?

    Yes, I've got some from chef's supplies that were thinner. I seem to remember I had to turn my seal time down.

    Typically they will seal most plastic bags, but the success of the Food Saver is drawing down a vacuum and flat bags won't do that. FS has a proprietary channel pattern to one side which allows the air to be extracted before sealing.

    Here is a link to bags that will work with a Food Saver and at a much more reasonable cost - especially when bought in bulk quantities. Their secret is a third layer of plastic mesh sandwiched on the inside which allows the air to be extracted. Here is a close up of that mesh.
