Oversized food storage bags [moved from General Topics]

I have some items that won't fit into a typical gallon-sized freezer bag, but i really want to put them into sealable bags before placing in freezer. anyone know of where to get oversized sealable freezer bags, or alterntive thoughts? thanks!

  1. I have to hunt for them, on my grocery store shelves, but there ARE TWO gallon bags where I shop.

    I use them for curing pork belly for bacon.

    Not sure if this will be big enough or qualifies as "oversize".

    Best of luck.

      The same, I always stock up on two gallon when I spot them, you can fit a turkey carcass and the like in there.

        I get them at most big supermarket chain stores.

      2. Sam's carries the 2 gallon freezer bags sometimes.

        1. Ziploc makes 2-gallon bags and Hefty makes 2.5-gallon.

            Right now I have a generic store brand, 2 gallon, if I ever saw 2.5 I'd probably buy some myself.

          2. thanks everyone, will take a look. i've never even looked for the larger size, simply assumed 1 gallon might be largest. appreciate your comments!
