John, are you getting any odors from the aging process inside the refrigerator? I don't think that I would care to age meat in my kitchen refrigerator. I know that you are using and non-dedicated fridge, and to me that would be the way to go.

I havent noticed any yet but i am only about 12 days in. I wou,d not expect odors this early in the process. I do have an open box of bakimg soda in the fridge though...

I *believe* the concern is more about the huge hunk of meat picking up odors (and flavors) from the other stuff in the fridge. Which is not good...

It's actually the opposite of that :)

What John said. After a week or so a crust forms and then the smell disapates.

Aging meat gives off very strung odors. I was raised around a locker plant, and you never forget the smell.

Yes gives off a strong odor but only for the first week or so - plus we're not talking about a huge meat locker just a primal or two at any one time.

True ckreef, BUT in a very small and confined area. There is suppose to be some kind of odor killer from what John told me. It maybe some kind of a IR light of some kind!?!?!?

The SteakAger has a UV light that is supposed to help with that.. it's part of the air circulation system.. maybe that is also part of why I haven't smelled anything. Some SteakAger owners have noticed odors though, so it could happen.

Doesn't it also have some kind charcoal filter to help with that?

It does but its so small that I can't see how it could be particularly effective.

I have a UV type light on my hot tub that acts as an "ozinator" (a word coined by the manufacturer). I don't know exactly how it works, but I know from owning prior hot tubs that it really reduces the amount of chemicals needed in the tub.

      Hi everybody,
      I am a kamado quasi-neophyte (I've got a Monolith junior since last August), and after some experience with shorter cooks (chicken; ribs) I wanted to enroll into Brisket Academy. Unfortunately, it seems that I have failed the entry exam, as I couldn't explain to my butcher what I needed.
      In the end, I was talked into buying something that definitvely does not look like brisket to me, and I don't know how to cook. It seems something I would braise or boil, but according to the butcher I can cut it into strips and make 'asado'. It is boneless (but has some hard cartilage).
       
      Apart for the idea of slicing strips and grilling them (that's not what I wanted), what could I do with this chunk of meat? How would you call it in English?
       
      Thank you a lot!

      A little behind the scenes to my Instagram post. Sunday I smoked two small chuck roasts for about 4 hours at 250 
       
      Then I put them in foil in beef broth and aromatics and let them braise for another four hours. 
       
      After two hours FTC these were ready to serve. I fried up the onions and served on fresh buns with American cheddar, horseradish mayo and Au jus 
       
      will deffinetly be doing this again

      Quick dinner tonight before the family heads south for a week of vacation. Seasoned two top sirloin steaks with Oakridge BBQ Carne Crusta rub and then grilled them on the Kamado Joe. Once the steaks were seared on one side I added a thyme, garlic, and rosemary compound butter to each steak. Pulled the steaks when they were at 135 degrees internal. As a side I roasted some fingerling potatoes in the cast iron skillet with oil, shallots, and garlic. Everything turned out great! Now it’s time for some rest and relaxation at the beach.

      I am going to plunge into the dry paging aspect of cooking a perfect steak.
       
      i normally buy my meats at Costco but usually avoid the holiday crowd during December so I was searching the Snake Rivers website and noticed all their roasts are wet aged for 21 days so I got on their live chat and asked them if you can still dry age and they responded that they would not reccomend it.  After that he was vague in answering my questions on where to go to get a roast other than trying to steer me to their allready dry aged roasts.
       
      i am looking for advise on how to choose a roast for dry aging
       
      my plan is to cut them into steaks (after dry aging) so should I use bone in prime roast over no bones
       
      i will be using the steakager master 15 to do the dry aging with.
       
      costco on line has a 19 lb prime roast for same price as SRF's 6 lb roast but the question of getting what you pay for still leaves SRF's in the equation
       
      thank you

      Ok folks I'm up against the wall. Tomorrow is our family reunion I had planned to cook - smoke two tri-tips, my butcher let me down... so I guess it will be pork again this year and be up half the night. Anyone have suggestions for beef that is comparable to tri-tip in tast, tenderness and time? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
