    Accepted Solution

    Most of the things that cause meat to spoil ( are much more likely to happen and/or will happen at a much higher rate in the open container.

    Assisted Solution

    By "air-tight" container, do you mean a sealed container with plenty of air in it or one that has almost no air (vacuum sealed).

    The open container will spoil fastest, followed by the sealed container with air in it. The vacuum sealed package will outlast the others by quite some time.
