Welcome to our little club Claydon! Yup, when I first started out. I too had problems with my sealer and bags and Thea was EXCELLENT to deal with. 🙂
Are you using the Sinbo snorkel sealer with your bags? I’ve been able to do many subprimals in the 13Lb range without too much trouble. My wife and I make sure we turn down the opening of the dry bag before we place the meat into it. This helps keep a the material clean and dry and helps ensure a proper seal.
Once the meat is in the bag, we unfold the bag, When sealing, I try to put even, constant pressure on the sealing bar using four fingers from each hand. I belive I have my Sinbo set to the recommended setting of 4. I wait until I hear the sealer beep, then I count to 5 and release, slide the bag down just a bit and reseal again.
