    Default What mil bags should we use?

    My buddy just bought a commercial vacuum sealer and now its time to buy bags for it. We will be using it primarily for salmon and halibut. What mil bags should we buy?

    I use 4 mil bags in the vacuum sealer I got from Alaska Butcher Supply. I use them for fish and game and they work great.

    normally the type of sealer will tell you what works best with there machine
    I have a chamber vacuum I am not sure what mil the bags are but I have stayed with what they suggest and have been very happy ever since. The only time I was not is when I used the normal vacuum sealer bags you get at the store they would not seal right.

    4 mil are IMO the minimum, if I wasn't so cheap I would be using the 5 mil bags. The sealing time should be adjustable to suit the various bag thicknesses. The biggest problem with the thinner bags is they seem to get popped in the freezer moving things around and they aren't so much cheaper that it's worth it.
