Ok everyone has weighed in and provided some excellent advice. I find that Costco has great prices and they are most helpful. Ron pointed you in the direction on what to look for. Look in the case first as Costco keep cryovac sub-primals in the case, both Choice and Prime. If you don’t like what you see, simply ask one of the meat guys. They will either bring you out some sub-primals to look at, or even better, they will bring out a case for you to look through.
Ron, I haven’t weighed in in awhile but I have a ribeye dry bag aging as we speak. It has gone for 28 days and looks good. I found out one thing though, bag size makes a difference. Making sure that you have the correct size is important. My first one I used the wrong sized bag, the result was good but could have been better. This one adhered to the meat quickly and looks of a deeper color. My question is this: I am preparing this primal mainly to have a prime rib for Christmas as we do every year – what would you recommend as the dry aging time on this? As these cook faster than non aged, a longer time (60 days) might prove to be a disaster. Of course I will “rip”myself off a couple of steaks for my own use (selfish I know).
