Setting permissions and groups across two domains/Trust

I have two separate organizations, two separate domains, and two forests.  The two organizations have somewhat combined.  I have created a two way trust between companyA.local and companyB.local.  To make sharing of some resources easier I want to set up groups that traverse both domains.  I can set up a group on either side but can only add users from that domain.  What can I do to accomplish what I am trying to do? I am running at a 2008R2 functional level.

I am not sure if this is routed properly.

The short answer being that there is no global inter-forest groups or users, and the trusts are the only things that allow external access to resources.
