I usually cut the end open and cut of chunks in sizes I think I will want to use and wrap them in cling wrap for the freezer. Then I put a clip on the cryovac plastic for the stuff I plan to use within a few days. It would probably would be a good idea to wash that plastic first. It's kinda hard to keep it off the cutting board.

That's what I did with the ribeye loin I just cut, I cut the end off and pushed the meat out (like a squeeze-pop) as I was cutting, basically cutting in the same spot on the board while the bag worked it's way further into the sink. No meat really came into contact with the outside of the bag.

Yeah, I do that too. I have a little bit on one end of the cutting board "contaminated" by wrapping.

I never fret about the wrapping. By the time I get done with it on the fire pit, the only thing that is left is flavor.

At least that's my guess.

taxy, I don't know why I find it easier to do this way, but it works for me.

If you read back, the original question was "did she wash the packaging or the meat in soapy water." It was the hour and the way she worded it. I understood that it was a full pork loin, but at that hour it didn't take much to confuse me.

Addie, I have never heard of anyone washing MEAT in soapy water. Is this another one of those special New England things?

No, I told you I was confused. Look at the time I asked the question. I was half asleep.

Addie, I probably should have used the "winkything" since there isn't a special sarcasm font.
