    SV Cooking Vessels

    I have the Joule by Chefsteps. It works great and I really like that it is so much smaller but as powerful as the competition. I'm in the market for a cooking vessel for larger cuts of meat or portions of ??? I would like to have one with the top cut out for the Joule to reside and have a tighter fit for less evaporation. Also I am having trouble determining the best size container to consider. I've done some research but get derailed when it comes to selecting a size. Any suggestions for the best all around vessel and size?

    What's the biggest clod you SV? I'd take that measurement and add an inch or to to the dimensions. That should cover you for the larger cooks. I'd also get a smaller container for your average SV. I', thinking something the size of a brisket for the large size, and something that will hold some steaks of maybe a roast for the smaller container.

      Go to Amazon, they have a pretty good assortment of large containers. I have a 26 quart polycarbonate model that will hold a medium size full packer brisket....

      Lipavi Container

      They also make a matching lid specifically for your Joule. Reduces evaporation to almost nothing on a long bath. There are also guys who have modified drink coolers for even larger needs, if you are handy that is. The Lapavi and Rubbermaid units have served me well, I highly recommend them.

          I take a different course. We have many sizes of pots around here, right up to a huge stockpot and a canning pressure cooker. So we pick whatever one is appropriate for a cook, and drop the little plastic spheres in to take care of the evaporation issue. We also have a metal rack to weigh down the packages. Both are available from Amazon.

            I have that same stainless steel contraption but i always put it on the bottom and then placed my items in it. Sometimes they would float. But, your way is nothing short of genius! My new method!

          I have a Lipavi C-20 (26 quart) and the Lipavi C-10 (12 quart) with the cutout lids. My Joule works just fine with them. I use the smaller one when the round stockpot I have is just not the right dimension for sous vide for several steaks. The big one, as Troutman mentioned, can hold a few chuck roasts or a packer.

          I also bought this Lipavi L10 Sous Vide Collapsible Rack. It's great!

            Thanks for the responses. I've managed to glean some information that will help me decide. It appears for my needs the C20 or 26 quart with lid and rack would be the best option. As shown in the posts stock pots work fine for the smaller cooks. Just need to get some of those ping pong balls.

              I just put plastic wrap on my stock pots for longer cooks. Works fine for me, but the balls do look pretty cool. For shorter cooks you don't need anything on top of the pot.

            I love to use this container from Cambro. Then you can pair it with this lid and you have no evaporation on those really long cooks. All of the cambro containers have a universal opening. So this lid will work if you get a bigger or smaller container.

            This setup has worked very well for me... a modified 24-can Coleman "Party Stacker" cooler (I think it's the smaller version of Omega-Man's cooler in post #7 above):

            1. Cut lid in half for easy access without having to remove the Anova to check contents of the cooler. Saw this done somewhere with hinges and a drain plug but decided I didn't really need them.
            2. Used a hole saw to make a cutout for a cable grommet that matches the diameter of Anova SV (2-3/8" for Anova, probably smaller size for Joule).
            3. I use the same stainless steel rack that EdF uses, inverted, in the cooler to hold down floaters.

            At any one time, I can SV a "large" full packer brisket (maybe 2?), or multiple butts, or several racks of ribs. Latest cook was a whole tenderloin that fed about 15 people. Longest cook so far was 48 hours, and did not need to add any water during the cook.

              I like this idea. I use a Coleman Party Stacker as a faux Cambro and could easily modify for dual use.

              For the clear plastic tubs, look on Amazon for a a tub and a hinged lid with the cut out in the corner that fits either the Lapavi or the Rubbermaid tubs. Remember that lids are not necessarily interchangeable so get one for the tub you're interested in. The corner cutout makes so much more sense and increases the usable capacity of the cooker.

                Just ordered this one based on a recommendation from a user that does big cooks..

                  The Cambro 12qt with ping pong balls works for me. I also have a 18qt if needed. I also use a thermal blanket around the Cambro that I got from Amazon fresh, seems to work ok and keep the heat in

                  If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                  Placeholder

                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                  Placeholder

                  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.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Placeholder

                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  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.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  Placeholder

                  We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  Placeholder

                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  Placeholder

                  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.

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                  Placeholder

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  Placeholder

                  Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
