    Sous Vide Vision

    So, last night I had a recurring dream of owning and operating a sous vide. I'm not sure what this means, or what Dr. Freud might think of it, but it seems to haunt me so. I'm not even sure what the hell I'd use it for!

        Dr. Freud would say that, unconsciously, you are afraid that your trolling motor or hot tub circulators are in need of repair.

        I have an Anova and use it for all sorts of things. However, Dr. Freud would never say that if I had a dream about SV that it would represent the content of the dream.

        I use mine for steaks, veggies and to reheat BBQ. I used it today for my pastrami. They are great to have. And fun to play with. You can make pretty much anything. They add a lot to your cooking experience. I have the Joule Circulator, it works very well , the app is easy to use and is loaded with content.

          Yeah, just get a cheap one. Anova without wifi when it goes on sale for $99 seems about right. I paid about 10x that for mine 6-7 years ago.

        Worst case: It would make a great foot bath ... or, like so many of us, you could use it as a really convenient replacement for the indirect portion of reverse searing.

              Yesterday's pastrami SV'd onto today's sandwiches. So much better than steaming. It will knock your socks off. Don't even worry about anything else. Leftovers alone are a good reason to buy one. Then on those cold Mt. Shasta nights when you have the hankering for BBQ but not quite the fortitude to brave the elements all day but still want to grill you can say "Oh, well, my second best is better than anyone else's best."

                I'm convinced by the pastrami. However, I have yet to find a night cold enough to keep me from my grills. I figure if those Midwest boys can soldier on in -0 temps then I can brave the cool Mt Shasta air.

                  Thank you CaptainMike ... no I didn't make it. It's a real handy work bench on casters. I use that surface to make bread on mostly. The rest of the bench is stainless steel. I bought it at Costco a while back.

                  I Grill asparagus too sometimes. I nuke it when I'm in a hurry too. However veggies SV style really are noticeably different and very tasty. You really ought to give it a try sometime. I like hollandaise sauce on my asparagus so I really can't tell the difference of the 3 methods much.🤔

                  We bake our "grass" in the oven - olive oil, salt, pepper, maybe some garlic powder. When we get it fresh and in season, it's good raw too.

                  I've done many Ribeye's SV style. At 131°... time is your tenderizer. I've done 2" USDA Prime grade Ribeye's for 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 24 hours before. 24 hours is too long, meat got mushy. 2 to 4 hours is ok. 8 hours is more tender and better. 12 hours is my preference.👍

                  I do mine at 130 for two hours... then on a roaring Weber chimney for about 20 sec/side. Perfect med-rare for 1 3/4" steaks.

                CaptainMike ... if you SV your 1 1/2" to 2" Ribeye's at 131° I suggest you sear them very, hot, hot, hot and fast. When you take them out of the SV bags... blot them dry and apply a generous amount of beef love on them. Once you have your grill to Warp 10 heat put them on for searing. The generous amount of beef love will ignite an open flames searing process, DO NOT panic! Searing in open flames with the beef love on it will give you a beautiful crust in about 1 minute per side. That hot, hot, hot quick sear will not raise the IT temperature of your meat as much as a slower sear at a lower temperature that takes twice as long... in my humble opinion.😎

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Placeholder

                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                Placeholder
