A very good idea, yet I wonder about sucking debri (if any) into the vacuum snorkle tube, as well as possible contamination of the meat. Time will tell with that question. Ideas are flowing well here. 🙂
Try the paper clip triangle as per the photo from RRP. It too provides a super quick seal, and its able to be reused later and sterilized.
The main idea is to provide something at the snorkle tip to avoid the bag being snuffed into the tube itself during the vacuum process.
One thing I have been going to mention is the idea of trimming your bags to size.
I feel thats just a waste of effort as your not going to use the trimmings anyway.
So just fold it up over the finished sealed meat and forget it.
Cheers.. keep up the experimenting for you home use. 🙂
