Yeah, first time. The seal seems to be ok. After roughly 12 hours in the fridge I didn’t see any significant air pockets and the bag is starting to stiffen up around the meat. I think I should be good to go.
I may try and make room in the beer fridge, ok not make room I threw out all the wire racks, and grab a 14-15 lb ribeye and try the twist tie method. I was worried that my steak would be too big for the bag (standard size), but I had a good amount of room left. I think I may be able to stuff a 14 pounder in there. And if not I’ll cut it up for steaks, chili, and grind the rest for hamburger. Now that I think about it, this seems like a no lose proposition.
