For meat (muscle, organs, fat), what would be the best temperature to keep them as fresh as possible in the refrigerator? I'm also curious about ideal freezer temperatures, mostly to prevent freezer burn.

Regarding high meat, would it be best to just leave it outside the refrigerator?

to learn more about temperatures, do an internet search for ageing beef.

i don't have a dedicated fridge to hang meat like some other members (envy, envy) but i slice beef muscle and heart and air dry it on racks in the bottom drawer of the fridge (36f); makes for tasty snacks!!!  doesn't last long tho bcuz i can't not eat it.

freezer burn:
i've stored various foods in the freezer for more than a year and not had freezer burn issues.  i double bag items in poly produce bags and insert that in a 'freezer' zip lock bag, making sure to squeeze out all the air i can before i close the zip lock..
