I have been vacuum sealing whole bunker and storing them in a serious freezer for years now. Lately I have heard some guys talk about brining as a better way or light brining and then vacuum sealing. Any thoughts?
Also a good way to freeze them is to gut them, ice them immediately in a salt ice mixture and vaccumm seal as soon as possable.
The guts wash out almost immediatly when you use them anyway.
They seem to preserve better that way and work as well or better than any store bought frozen bunker.
