Ok, so after trapping 14 pigs in the 2 days over the last two weekends it is pretty apparent that I'm about to have a mess of pork over the rest of the season and need to figure out what to do with it. I've still got 4 deer tags to fill and can't send everything to the processor at once/process myself and the deer will take priority after this weekend. How does everyone store pork hams, shoulders, etc? The straps will be vacuum sealed but I don't have a sealer big enough for the hams/shoulders and don't want to grind anything right now. I've got an upright freezer and a chest freezer. Thoughts other than giving it away
Edit: I bleed the meat out on ice for at least a week before it hits the processor/freezer.
