Thanks everyone for the help!

I think my unit may have a defect in the sealing bar - it wants to burn holes through my bags even at the #3 setting. I plan on calling tech support about it.

I did however get the ribeyes sealed up - not perfect but I am hoping the bag will adhere to the meat after a couple of days. It seemed to seal but I notice that there was some areas that the bag wasn't tight up against the meat. I don't have any pantyhose in the house so I need to get some to see if that helps me.

And I couldn't get the straw or the paper clip trick down...not sure what I am doing wrong. I will keep reading and trying though. I don't give up very easily!

Tanya, no need to buy hose if you have a butcher shop nearby - they would probably just give you what's called butcher's netting which will do the same thing.

Not sure why the paper clip or raft didn't work for you - maybe if you tell us more we can figure it out. OTOH another trick is to merely take a straw and suck the air out and then seal tight with a bread twisty. A bag need not be perfectly air bubble free for the bag to adhere to the meat, but the more air you can extract the better!

This waiting is for the birds~ LOL

I was planning on taking everything to 45 days but I will never make it....

I am thinking I will have to start at 21 days so I have something to compare when I do finally make the 45 day mark!!

Tanya - it's your meat, but in all honesty with a ribeye you really need at least 28 days as a minimum IMHO. That's why I hide my aging meat on the bottom shelf behind a row of jars - you know - out of sight out of mind! :laugh:
