    Welp,I've decided to dive in on the process.
    After much reading and research I've found it really isn't that difficult just time consuming.
    My final decision will be made after dinner tomorrow.
    The Wife picked up three dry aged Ribeyes that have been dry aged for thirty nine days.
    Yeah they look nasty before trimming....

    But after trimming?
    Oh yeah!!!!

    They have a distinct nutty smell at thirty nine days and begin to take on a much more distinct flavor after forty five days. Some call it a funky yet interesting taste at that point.
    Can't wait to test the boundaries!!!!

    This guy did a brisket for sixty days and from the look of it it came out amazing!!!! Far juicer than any brisket I've ever smoked!!!



    Here's to new food adventures!!!!

    The meat is a bit darker and more firm when pressed.

    A five hundred buck refrig,a desk fan,some Himalayan salt a few glass casserole dishes and some meat racks and you're good to go.

    yes...it was at the expensive joints where when waiting tables you wire an Eaton jacket. Prime rib was really popular then also.
