Aging meat is a science, whether you want to believe it or not, and it works when preformed correctly.

Dry aged is my favorite, maybe one day I will be stupid rich and I will build a salt block lined room to age my venison and free range beef. Actually I would never butcher it...just slice of a piece as needed.

This was my latest experiment:

ATHiker is correct that dry aging is an exact science. In fact, the experts on the subject say that it is impossible to accurately dry age at home. Some people, including Alton Brown, disagree. I think that it is possible to get dry aging results at home with not too much effort. The process may be slower and not as consistent, however. Beef is much more difficult to age because of the fat layers. Venison, with very little to, compared with beef, basically no fat, seems to be much more forgiving of the process. I do think that the USDA guidelines are too cold for highly effective dry aging.
