I dried a new York strip whole roast for 28 days, it was my first time using the UMAI dry bags, and when I trimmed the outer layer off and cut Steaks off, the meat was nice and red and then grilled them, they were delicious. I also dried a bottom round roast it was delicious too. It is fun to do and rewarding. I have one bag left I don't know what I'm going to do next, Thank you.

Great product and great service. I had one order that had some missing items when I called about it they priority mailed out the missing items the same day. I also had some questions about fermentation temperatures and I got a very prompt and helpful email response. I've also had great results with all my charcuterie, salumi and dry aged beef projects.

I ordered the sampler package for $33USD, which with shipping and exchange came to $65CND. The rib roast bags are very large. My $150CND rib roast did not come close to filling the bag. Even though the instructions tell you to dry a subprimal cut, I decided to cut the roast in half because I didn't want to ruin a very expensive roast. I wasn't sure I had a good enough seal on the bag but the fine print does say not to worry about some air. After a couple of days in the frig the bag did cling to the whole piece. I left it for 30 days. It smelled fine when I cut the bag open. I did my usual cooking - 500 degree oven, put roast in oven, turned oven off. When I could begin to smell the roast cooking it was at 110 degrees. I tented the roast for 20 minutes because we like our beef blue(usually cook to 120 degrees before tenting). Much to my dismay when I carved the roast was medium to well done. Other than being too well done the meat was tender and tasty. I don't know if these bags are worth the trouble. I'm going to try a salting process that I viewed on YouTube to see what that does. I wish I could give these bags a better review - maybe they are not meant for people like me, who buy a big hunk of beef from Costco and cut it into edible portions - hunters may like them better.

Sandra--Your review is really helpful. Indeed, not all ribeye or strip loin subprimals fill the Ribeye/Striploin size UMAi Dry. Perhaps that lovely Canadian subprimal would have been happier in a Roast size bag. We're sorry you had to cut it. Ideally, UMAi Dry should always be used with a full subprimal steak cut so you have minimal waste of the meat when you trim the hard "bark" outer surface after aging. We hope you will give the charcuterie process a try! It is certainly a less costly and less anxiety-inducing first experience with UMAi Dry since all you need is a hunk of pork shoulder!

Excellent product that turned out a phenomenal 128 day Bresaola, 72 day Capicolla, and a 22 day whole angus beef loin on my first try! Thank you, Umai Dry!!!!!!!! I can't wait to start on my next project!!

Fantastic product, great informative website. My only single complaint is that the bags are a wee bit pricey. But you're the only game in town, so there's that. I didn't set my likey to recommend number to 10 simply because I have no friends who are interested in charcuterie or gourmet cooking. They all seem to leave that to me!

Thank you, Ean, for being so fair handed. There is nothing cheap about UMAi Dry, and there is nothing cheap about meat. We only hope that we provide you with a means and the support to do that investment of meat and time the highest honor.

The sausage kit is amazing. Instructions were fairly straightforward and simple. Used the pepperoni spice for simplicity. Results were fantastic just like going to the deli.

"Like the deli"?! You're being modest, I suspect. Hard to be truly slow fermented dry sausage made at home. We're glad the UMAi Dry Sausage Kit made it possible for you to craft such results with ease. Thank you for the helpful feedback.
