I’ve gone through four bags now but I’m unable to get a good final bag/meat contact. I’ve taken a look through the forum, watched the Foodwishes.com video several times and tried the straws, ‘rafts’, massaging, etc. I actually do get a good vacuum when the machine is pulling a vacuum. It looks perfect, and the bag is completely sucked in against the meat. However, when I push down on the seal bar and the snorkel retracts, air immediately gets back into the bag and the seal locks it in. I then have large air pockets in the bag. Without good bag contact against the meat I don’t think I should continue the aging process. Has anyone encountered this problem? Any solutions/recommendations?
