    Perfect SVQ Rib Eye's

    Well I'm starting to get my new PK360 dialed in and last night I did a couple of 1 1/2" thick rib eye's that we cut from a roast.

    I did the Sous Vide in our Instant Pot for 3 1/2hours at 134. Salt and pepper plus a sprig of thyme in the vac bag.

    When the Sous Vide was complete I put them in the freezer for about 1/2 hour.

    Got the PK going for low and slow then smoked the steaks for 45 min with a chunk of hickory. Then did the reverse sear. and finally ate.

    Sorry but as usual I forgot to take any pictures. My wife said it was the best steak she has ever had and I agree. Perfectly done and so flavorful.

    I like the, "finally ate" comment.


      I got an Insta pot have not tried to Sous Vide with it.
      Thanks for the idea.

        We use our Instant Pot at least 3 time a week. I upgraded to the model that does the Sous Vide and am loving it.

        +1 with bbqLuv. I'm guessing this is just newer/newest models?

      I prep our steaks with tenderizer, pepper, "Ass Kickin" Honey Chipoltle seasoning, some minced garlic, liquid smoke, and about 2 t of whisky per side, work it in with a fork, and then put a light coat of olive oil on it. Vacuum seal it and let it marinate for 24 hrs, then either freeze them or cook them. Sous-vide at 131F for anywhere from 2 - 4 hrs and then just sear them. It might be interesting trying the ice bath and then smoking them for a while. but I would need to be careful. My wife likes her steaks med-rare.

        Drop your sous vide temp to 125. That should provide you with a little buffer.

        Sous vide below 130° can be risky due to food safety issues and is generally not recommended for long cooks. Short cooks only. As this site says, cooking below 130° is like leaving the meat out on the counter: https://www.amazingfoodmadeeasy.com/...ety-guidelines .

        Just FYI. You do you, though, as they used to say.

    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.
