Vacmouse was created by Chbernat
I misplaced the vacmouse strips and need to get a prime rib I wanted to dry age in a bag. Is there anything else I can use or do?

You do NOT need a perfect vacuum with the UMAi Bag to achieve proper aging! You don't even need a Food Saver!! What you can do instead is to place the meat inside the bag, press the bag against the meat, and then gather the open end of the bag together and insert a flexible straw or piece of tubing into the gathered end, continue to squeeze out any captured air and then just suck any remaining air as best you can - then quickly yank out the tubing and seal the bag using one of those paper or plastic "bread twistys".

The vacmouse fabric is there to create some gap where the air can actually escape from the bag while being vacuumed. If you misplaced or ran out of the strips, just use a piece cut from any other regular vacuum sealer bag in exactly the same way you would have used the vacmouse thingy.

Of course as Ron says, you don't absolutely need a perfect vacuum. But if you do want to use the sealer and ran out of those strips, a bit of a vacuum seal bag works fine.

I coined that method before the VacMouse was ever discovered and even created a YouTube video on how to do that. BUT the VacMouse is a far better solution! I'll see if I can dig that YT out today.
