Prime rib tied bones was created by Marpie76
I’ve just started to dry age a 9 pound prime rib. The butcher cut the bones off and then tied them back on.
1. Should I continue the drying process with the bones tied on or remove them?
2. Will 42 days be too long for 8-9 pound prime rib? Thanks.

People do both ways, but if you do leave the bones tied on just be sure you cover any bone corners with say parchment paper to prevent the bones from ripping or punching holes in the UMAi Dry® bag. I personally have never tied the bones back on after being cut off, but that's just me!

A 8-9 pound prime rib can very easy benefit from 42 days or even longer since it is su h a think piece of meat.

I’m actually not using the bag, just a dedicated upright modern refrigerator with a fan inside. My concern is possible spoilage between the bones and meat if I leave the bones on. Does this change your answer or am I still good leaving the bones on while drying? Thanks again.

Ha! I was too quick to JUST assume you asked this question on the UMAi Dry bag forum that you were using the UDB product.

Since you are not and are instead going "commando" as that is called go check the Internet - there are thousands of opinions there even though they are often contradictory.

With or without UMAi Dry®, meat once exposed to air, then covered again will rot. Commando or UMAi Dry®, both require untrimmed, untouched subprimal cuts of Choice or better grade beef.
