It doesn't matter if I put the meat in ziplock bags or leave it in the container...still gets freezer burnt :cry: My mom used to wrap hers in aluminum foil and freeze it, but it just sticks to the meat for me.
The only way I haven't gotten it is when I buy the ground turkey on a roll instead of pack.

About 7 years ago, I bought a Food Saver. Let me tell you... I have used it regularly all these years and no longer have issues with freezer burn!!
It was a great investment. It's still going strong!

I wrap in wax paper first, and then in foil. Works great!

I double bag mine in the freezer bags or I use one regular sandwich bag and put that inside a freezer bag. If I am doing 1lb pkgs of ground beef, I will do 5-6 in quart size freezer bags and then put them inside of a gallon size freezer bag.

We butcher our own meat and we have never had freezer burn. Like pp said, butcher paper (freezer paper) works great.
