Paper clip was created by Big H
Hello,

I am new to dry aging, I just aged a rib eye roast for 28 days, it came out perfect, melt in your mouth good.
I do have a question, I have been reading posts, and I can not find out what the "paper clip" trick is?

Thank you,

Big H

Welcome aboard, Howard! Glad to hear your first aging was a success - that means you are hooked now! :laugh:

The paper clip trick was invented by C~W over a year ago and involves bending open a pc into a triangular shape. You then insert one of the round corners near or in the tip of the Sinbo sealer and it serves to keep the bag open enough to draw the air down. The clip should be sterilized before each use as it stays in the bag after sealing.

Ron,

Thank you, I know how to use it now, as keeping the bag open was a pain for me.

FWIW: I would bend a very small, thin paper clip into an arrow shape with two prongs on one end:



I'd insert the prongs into the snorkel, and put a small bend in the arrow so the bag woundn't collapse on itself. I'd also try a few trials by retracting the snorkel to ensure the paper clip would dislodge into the bag.
