I have not done this with meat, but I have used this trick to infuse
juices, and liquor into fruit. It really is only effective using a bag,
and chamber vac. You cannot effectively draw a vacuum on liquid with a
chamber vac.


My experiences, drawn from hundreds of years is this: You can't really
get a vacuum, because if you did, you would suck all the juice out. So,
you just try to get the air out, the culprit in freezer burn. Since you
can't get a hard vacuum with the marinade liquid and body juices in
there, the point of hard vacuuming is moot.

meant cannot. Sorry :-(


That is as clear as mud.
