    Cooler For Sous Vide Brisket?

    Looking for recommendations for a cooler to use for SV'ing full packer briskets, up to about 14-16 lbs.

    Anyone have experience with the Coleman Party Stackers? Are they big enough? If not, what is a recommended minimum size?

    Any other tips or gotchas?

    Thanks!

    I used a large Coleman cooler to do a 12 lb Prime rib. It worked great. They help keep the water warm too, an added bonus. Just make sure you start with hot water because it take a while to heat up.

    I use a Coleman Stacker for my larger cuts, works great. I didn't want to cut the lid (multi task) so I use a piece of dense foam as a lid with a piced trimmed out for my Anova

      I think it should be big enough. Never done anything that big, I’m just going by the room I have in it with the circulator in place.

      If you’re interested, here’s a thread I started about what I did to my party stacker:

      I have done steaks for 40 in a Coleman 40. As mentioned start with hot water and make sure your circulator is rated to handle the volume of water you are using..

        I always preheat the cooler, with hot water first. I find that this helps the circulator along a little bit.
