    Testing one two, Anova over!

    Figured before I do a 72 hour cook I'd take baby steps. First soft boiled egg at 167 for 18 minutes. Perfect yolk but white was too loose. I'll do 185 degrees for 13 minutes Next, stuffed chicken breast. Cooking at 148 for 2 hours I'll be back!

    I found a small cooler in my garage that fits perfectly. This 25 qt cooler will be reserved for large item cooks.

    Neato. Sure beats a weed burner, you can't eat the stinkin' weeds!!!!!

    You know we sometimes get chickens at the plant with un-absorbed yolks.....and they are never perfect. Good going!!!

      Experiment, left it in the water bath for 2 hours at 148. Wanted to see if it'd dry out. NOPE! Perfect breast.

          So far, I'm digging it like totally. Perfect for warming up leftovers without drying out. I'm doing some beef short ribs @ 138 degrees. I'll pull one bag at 48 hours and the next at 72. I'll see which one I prefer.

                  Ernest, while I'm no expert on sous vide, I have read there are some concerns regarding food being in the danger zone for some sous vide applications and therefore a pre-sear is done to help eliminate pathogens. This may be where a research based recipe like those at Chef Steps may be of benefit to you. The folks over there are a lot like the experts on this site .

                  But a pre sear is only just that. It does nothing to the internal temp so I doubt that it does anything to help eliminate thingamajigs.
                  I'm a member of chef steps, those folks are mad scientists.

                  The pre-sear is only meant to eliminate pathogens on the exterior of the meat only, so they don't multiply at the start of the cook. You are correct in that it will not eliminate any pathogens that may be inside the meat, such as those taken into the meat from the surface by injecting. Yes, they certainly are crazy men over there. I think it would be awesome to work there

                  Yes, that sous vide sure looks handy. That chicken is mouthwatering. Just don't forget to fire up the grill every now and then also, right? ;-)

                        Did the browning of the chicken happen in the water bath or did you pre / post sear?

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                        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.
