The warm weather will be here before most of us realize it, and for those who are planning on aging steaks in time for their summer gatherings, your friends at SteakAger thought it would be helpful to provide some dates to keep in mind in order to ensure perfectly aged steaks. Results will vary based on the unit your using, as well as the size of your subprimals, but this should give you a good idea on when to start the process in time for the major summer holidays.
The time frames and dates we’re suggesting are just that… suggestions. Everyone’s taste will differ greatly, and we strongly suggest reading our article on the various stages of steak aging to learn more about what to expect. The dates below reflect a 35-37 day aging period with subprimals that average out at about 15 pounds.
- Memorial Day, around the 24th or 25th of April
- Father’s Day, around the 13th or 14th of May
- Fourth of July, around the 30th or 31st of May
- Labor Day, around the 1st or 2nd of August
- Flavors will change significantly after the 45th day of steak aging
