I hope you can give me some feed back on my storage plan. I have been stocking up at Wal-Mart slowly. And we are starting to can our own meat based products like pulled pork, taco meat, chile, etc. We have a large pantry but it is starting to fill up. I have 10 large 40x30x32 Styrofoam coolers with lids. Each one will hold most of a field dressed elk. I can store a lot of bags, cans, jars and boxes of food in them. Very thick walls. They ship insulin in them to big pharmacy centers out west. Mine had been out side in the 90 deg heat for a week and the blue ice packs were still cold and slushy. My question with these taped shut will they provide a good storage environment in a not too hot or cold garage? I also have 7 five gallon buckets with screw on lid that corn starch comes in to make fake pills for drug trials. They seal real good and tight. Will these be good for flour and corn meal type products? Thanks for any advice or comments.
