Firstly, Happy Thanksgiving! Second, I have a question and hope someone can answer me real quick!
The sub primal bag seems like it didn’t get as good of a vacuum and is starting to develop a good size air pocket on the front where the bag comes together at the seal end. Should I be concerned about this and maybe try to reseal? I would understand if it was a couple weeks in but at only a few days I’m a bit concerned.
Another thing that may be a factor is that there was nothing to drain from the original package and the meat wasn’t very wet. It smelled great and beefy and seemed like a nice piece of beef, has anyone else run into this and is this a potential problem… maybe I should have asked this earlier? Maybe the reason I’m getting the air pocket is because it’s not bonded like it should have and it’s drying / shrinking a little earlier?
