Doc – if you do the math again then if you aren’t bagging until Monday then day 45 will be Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. Any chance you can bag tomorrow instead of Monday? Also to double check – are you planning to practice on one bag to get the hang of it? Have you read the tricks about rolling the bag down outwardly like a sock so that it will allow the meat to slip in easier and then you can “roll up the sock” without a problem? Also the panty hose trick if need be?
Trust me – I really want this first time to work for you – let alone anyone else reading this in the future! Ron
