Great idea. Another way to get the oxygen out is dry ice. You stick it in the bucket overnight and it'll push all the oxygen out to the top, so you won't have to wait for the oxygen absorbers. Here's a little sample -I have been thinking about the same thing. My thought was to put it into 1/2 gal vacuum seal bags with a few oxygen absorbers. Then put that into a second bag and filling up a strong 5 gallon bucket. A few tablespoons added to other meals would up the protein and calorie count, especially with so many of the freeze dried and other long terms foods being high carb.
