    I've been doing a lot of research on how to best keep these and also on the butchering process.

    My question is, do you wrap them in something like a vacuum sealer before resting in the fridge or do you only do that once ready to freeze?

    I use shrink bags to package them. This forum has a lot of information about that. I rest them already packaged in the bags but some people do it differently.

    I agree with the above posting. Shrink bags are the way to go for me. Tight seal, no freezer burn, cheap to use.
