    Hello I'm a Newbie from Tampa!

    Hello I am from Tampa and a newbie to Pitmaster but have been cooking on my Large Big Green Egg for 21 years! I am actually legally blind (not totally blind) and use adaptive technology on my computer and iPhone which talk to me and enlarge text and images on my screen. I also use hand held magnifiers to check temp gauges as well as a Javelin Pro instant read thermometer which has a 2 inch display which I love. I recently got into sous vide as Christmas I got an instant pot which has sous vide button incorporated into it. It gave me an introduction but it is not accurate as it can be anywhere from 5-12 degrees off so always use my Thermoworks Smoke to monitor water temp. FINALLY just got my Anova Pro and am loving it so far! Last tool I just got is one I was fortunate to win on a FB group- The Su-V gun by grillblazer.com and it's quite amazing! Obviously I can use it to sear with control outside on my unlit BGE, even though they say you can use it indoors, I don't. Also can use it to light my Egg quick and easy. I am excited to learn many things here and hopefully will be able to be a long-time member! Oh yeah, currently using Meathead's Memphis Dust on a pork butt which I dry brined in Kosher salt overnight. I currently have it swimming in sous vide 155/36 and will give icewater shock and refrigerate overnight. Saturday morning I plan on applying more Memphis Dust and putting on my BGE at 250 Degrees F for a few hours to create a nice bark but will not exceed internal temp of sous vide temp of 155. When pulling I will use some juices from the bag that has been strained and heated and doctored a bit. Hopefully I will learn how to post pics and videos soon!

                    • I cook on a 15-year-old Kamado #9, a huge beast nearly 6 feet tall and with black ceramic tile on the outside. I of course love smoked meats of all kinds, but also like quick cooks like chicken portions, pork tenderloins and fish. Really into cooking of all kinds. Just added an outdoor fire pit that has grilling capability and limited Santa Maria-style grill raising and lowering.
