I am a relative newbee to dry aging steak. In fact I have only dry aged two 16+ ribeye loins I got from Sams. I bought the Foodsaver 2460 and the starter kit including the Vacmouse strips from DrybagSteak. This is what the Lady I talked to on the telephone recommended. With the Foodsaver 2460 and the VacMouse Srtips, I have sealed both ribeye loins the first try and I have used only 2 Drybags. I did use the practice bag and sealed up several water bottles first. The First Ribeye I hadsmall air pockets where the bones had been cut from the meat. The second ribeye, I got my wife to help me massage the air out of these areas and got an extremely tight seal.
Do you have an old foodsaver or equivalent sealer you could try instead of the Snorkle sealer?. I have had a wonderful exeprence using the Foodsaver 2460 with VacMouse Stips. Most sealing problems seem to come from the Snorkle vaccum sealer users until they master them. I have only used the Foodsaver 2460 so I cannot address the Snorkel sealer.
You are losing out on the best steaks you will ever eat if you give up.
