Are you worried the the meat won’t fit the fridge or the bag? I have already easily stuffed a 15 + pounder in the standard bag with no problem. If it is the fridge you are worried about, can you maybe stand the meat up, or possibly cut the meat and bag in half, reseal the bag on one end and twist tie the other to make it fit the fridge. Also have you read my other post about not wasting your money on choice or prime meat for aging? I’m going to the market in a little while, they have select whole ribeyes on sale for $ 4.99 lb. Select is all I buy. I have bought many select that could easily pass for choice and prime. The last one I did was easily prime, but graded select. The USDA or whoever is grading the meat at these processing plants can’t possibly look at and grade every single piece of meat. All you have to do is look at both ends very carefully for the best marbling that you can see. You can’t go wrong. It will all come out tender, believe me, they grade meat on marbling , not tenderness. They look at the meat to grade it, not by eating it. No matter what you may have heard or read about you can only successfully age choice or prime. Simply not true . Let me know how you make out.
