Costco Prime Beef, Drybags, RRP's Video

First, a heads' up - Costco in Southlake, TX has prime ribeye steaks, roasts today. I picked up a lonely looking 6.52 lb boneless roast at 10.99/lb. Primals (is that what you call the large, vacuum packs of bone-in?) were something like $8.99 I think.

I only went for cheese (16 lbs of Tillamook sharp cheddar) to smoke for Christmas presents this weekend, but I just couldn't pass up that roast.

Then, trying to decide what to do with all that meat, and remembering RRP's YouTube video of using a Foodsaver to successfully vac and seal a Drybag, I broke down and ordered the combo pack of bags.

The Monogram fridge we have has a "Climate Keeper" drawer that I can set to "meat", or 34 degrees F. I'd dry-aged a "nekkid" 2-bone rib roast for 7 days in it once before and it worked beautifully, but I'd like to try the longer aging with the Drybag.

You guys are always such a great source of inspiration ;)

    Yes, still has BBQ Outfitters (my dealer) in the area.

    And it definitely is cheese smoking weather!

    BTW, M-i-l and S-i-l were given your website with the adjustable rig combo as a Christmas idea.....

    That was a good deal on prime graded beef!
    BTW here's a link back to that post of using a Food Saver to seal Drybags. It also has a link to the clip I posted on You Tube. You dry age that prime beef and it will be GREAT!!!

    Michelle, when you get that primal sealed, let us know if it worked okay. I want to try it too.
