We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

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.
