Always on a grill so that air can circulate clear around and never on a flat solid surface.

I know you might think I am being a smart aleck when I keep asking the same question, but since you are in Malta I am not familiar with your brands of refrigerators. So I'm asking again...is it a "frost free" unit? Brand new is one thing but if you have humidity issues there and that new refrigerator does not extract the moisture from inside then yes you are risking spoilage and rotting of that meat as it dry ages even at a constant 35º.

Though I am just a country boy and had never heard of Smeg brand then after checking the price I see it is one very expensive one! Congrats on buying such a NICE brand!

OTOH in researching that brand I also see that not every model that Smeg makes and sells is frost free - VERY expensive or not! My advice is to dig out your operating manual/sales contract or whatever you have to see since I'm still wondering if YOURS is frost free or not! It may chill, freezer and do all sorts of wonders, but if it isn't frost free then it will NOT draw off the moisture being given off by dry aged meat and therefore your expensive meat can just lay there and rot in the trapped moisture.

Hi there,
First time dry aging steaks over here.
Got a 13lbs NY strip and transferred it from the cryovac to the bag 5 days ago.
Bag adhered super well.
Yesterday night( 4 days into the project), a slight cheesy smell(parmesan like smell) came out from it so i dug a little deeper and since it was placed in my garage fridge(regular) i transfered it to my fridge upstairs(34-37 degrees).
The fat side is changing colour and is super solid.
I am wondering if i just ruined this piece of meat or it is salvageable?
Thank you

Having gotten out of that WRONG refrigerator after just 4 days then you should be fine assuming that new refrigerator is a modern, frost free unit!
