How yall are ? Hello from New Orleans. I agree. I love red meat hot off the grill.I have loved meat since I was a kid. I’m the son of of a butcher. I have been around meat all of my life. Worked with my dad many of day. I got interested in dry aging about a year ago.I got to thinking, there must be a better steak out their somewhere. I started researching the internet, all I could find was info on the method of wrapping the meat in towels, or cheese cloth and changing it every day. This seemed like a lot of trouble. Then by chance I came across this web site, read the testimonials, I said what the heck, I’ll give it a whirl. First ribeye I did was about 14-17 days. I got antsy and pulled it out, not bad, but it could only get better with more time. Next one I did was for 28 days, talk about anticipation. That’s a long time to wait for a piece of meat. It was like watching molasses running up hill in the winter. Now I do all of my meat at 21 days. Deliciosis ! I read all of the post about going 45 days, I also seen a tv show recently about steak houses across America, this one place in Tampa, FL. goes 60 days. I bet that would be a heck of a steak. To tell you the truth my thinking on the grading of meat, the more the USDA inspector grades as choice or prime, the higher the profits for the slaughter houses, wholesalers , and retailers. Meat is graded on marbling, not on tenderness. All I ever age is select grade, Yes select grade, and you can buy as much as you want around here for $ 4.99 a pound for whole ribeyes . I have bought many, and I mean many that could easily pass for prime.You just have to select your meat carefully. Look at both ends for marbling , compare several and choose the best out of the chosen few. Going to put 4-6 whole ribeyes in the fridge this weekend.Select, at you guessed it, $ 4.99 lb. I have a spare fridge in the garage. One last thing, like others have said, we have eaten at many restaurants, and none compare to what you can do with these bags at the price that you can do them for. I will never buy another steak from out of the case again. Good grilling, and good eating.
