First of all, welcome to our forum, Bill! Your question of re-bagging falls into one of personal choice. If you already have sizable air pockets I might re-bag it myself depending on how long I planned to age the meat. OTOH if you left ample material on one end you might be able to salvage the situation as follows. Do NOT remove the bag, but cut a small piece off a corner and insert a straw or a piece of tubing inside. Then using your hands and even the extra hands of a helper massage the air pockets out while sucking out the air – just don’t breathe in! When satisfied with the bag to meat contact seal the small opening with a bread twisty. If you plan to do this salvage method the sooner you do it the better as the bond is getting tighter every day. Good luck and keep us posted!
