Which one should I choose? was created by Bill Grill
I am new to UMAi Dry, but am excited to try after watching a really interesting episode of Sous Vide Everything (I am a big fan). I ordered a combo set of bags today and sent my wife to the store to buy big meat. She ended up buying a 9.65lb Beef Sirloin Tip Whole USDA Choice Angus and a 15.32lb Beef Brisket Whole USDA Prime. Would one be better than the other for dry aging, or should I just set both up for it?

Whoa! I sure hope that she bought that meat while still sealed in a cryovac bag and not just out of some butcher shop or grocery store display case!

Yes, they are both in cryovac bags.

For a first try, usually I would recommend a boneless ribeye. But if you’ve got a sirloin, start with that. Just look up the proper way to stake out the sirloin afterward. There are two separate muscles that cross at a 90° angle to each other.

As for aging the brisket, that’s a whole different application, but you should love the results.
