  • Laughed out loud through the entire thing!  Stikes first response to Fidel caused an outburst that had my office mate popping in from next door ask what was wrong!!!!!!  A true classic, with the whole host of was a lively bunch, fo sho!

    However, I did find your comment about the 3 lesbians a little offensive...but thats just me...not that there is anything wrong with it!

    @mustgrill - I thought you were asking how I cooked the steaks. I guess you were at my dry aging process.

    I rinsed the beef and patted it dry. Threw it in the bottom of the basement fridge. Took a picture once a week.

    When I sliced it up I did minimal trimming ( hanging tags, overly thick/hard fat, etc) leaving as much of the "dried" portion as possible.

    I chose that method because it was the least amount of work :).

    @smak:  you chose well. that's real dry aging. no towels, bags, nuthin. a lot of systems and methods seem to want to reinvent the wheel.  and then they go and trim the thing anyway.

    yours is the best way.  keep at it.
    as a variation, if you like the stronger taste, is to wet age in cryo for 40-60 days, then dry age a further 45 or so, more or less
