Your post on sealing was most interesting as usual. I did not know that it was not necessary to seal a corner when using the Vac-mouse. Now I know, but it worked very well with the corner seal. Next time I will do it without. As you are an old hand at this, you know that my anxiety is growing by the day, close but yet so far away. Since I cut the sirloin in half, I may opt to unseal one at the 28 day mark (next Saturday) just for comparison with the 45 day Rib Eye and Sirloin. Man, I am trying my best to hold on. BTW, your previous suggestions have worked to perfection – Thanks!
