Another "Air in bag" question. was created by chrismariusb
Restoring this post: ( or trying haha.)
I already typed this out once but after hitting submit, I didn't see the post anywhere on the forum nor under "My Topics" so I guess I will try to post it again. I'll be succinct this time.

I've got a 4-bone USDA prime ribeye roast that I sealed up and put in the fridge on the 12th. I am concerned about air in the bag and a good bond not forming.

Should I / is it okay to re-bag the roast? Is this a bad idea? If it's okay to do it (it has only been a couple of days), would it be a good idea to moisten the surface of the meat with water to get it to stick to the bag better?

I can provide pictures if necessary. I am afraid that one of the bones might have damaged the bag but I cannot tell if that has happened or not. I appreciate any help or advice.

Welcome aboard! Let me ask some questions before I go on...

When you say "4 bone" do you really mean 4 bones in your meat that you are aging? Or is that what had been in the meat before someone cut the 4 bones out of it?

Did you take any precautions of protecting the UMAi bag from those sharp bone edges?

I did not, since the bones were barely exposed at all and also it was already in the bag by the time I realized it might have been a good idea to cover them.

I'm not sure that the bones did damage the bag. I can't find a place that's obviously damaged.

Even though you can't see any holes even now there is every chance in 99 out of 100 that as your meat drys those bones will tear your bag.
