I bought that rib roast to dry age Wed. Amazon showed the 25 for delivery so order 2 day shipping from Umai. They not shipping until today so not real sure when they get here. Now amazon shows one day delivery. Should I go ahead and freeze or wait? Guess I could just unwrap and start the age with no bag.

No need to freeze it as long as it's kept in the fridge. If it is shipped in cryovac I'd leave it in the bag till the uMai delivery shows up.

Ii just in regular package after he cut it. I picked up my third one today. Went to get turnips to make Jeff's mash. This will make two really nice steaks. I have to quit walking by the meat counter!!! I got a ton of ribeyes in freezer all ready.

This package never going to get here. I had a friend that is a mail girl check yesterday and she got it to move from plano to Dallas which is the wrong way and stuck there again. This 2 day delivery is now 8 days. Was at VFW and guy I know that is a butcher said it needs to come out of that package. It has moisture trapped in. I put in freezer for a while yesterday but pulled back out thinking bag will get here today. I will just take out of bag and mist it with water if bag ever gets here. This nice rib roast might be a goner when said and done. Live and learn. Stick with Amazon!!! USPS sucks!

Sometimes Amazon ships USPS. If originating on the west coast look up all the container break ins on Union Pacific rails. They literally have miles of track covered in boxes (a lot of them Amazon) from all the container smash and grabs.

At least that not mine. Mine came across country in 2 days and been in Dallas for several days now. I would drive there if I could to get it. I thought about seeing if my friend could get it to move again but she has her own job to do. She posted this the other day. I so mad at my self for not freezing it but when for pay extra 10 dollars for 2 day shipping never would of thought still waiting over a week later!

Just got update being delivered today finally. At this point I probably should just cut into steaks and freeze but I think I will roll the dice.
