    First go at SVQ -

    Got my Joule yesterday. Going to do a first attempt at SVQ today.

    I've got a Nolan Ryan angus chuckie that's dry brined and rubbed. I'm going to attempt a medium rare / medium chuck roast, following Troutman 's medium rare brisket.

    Also putting a flat into the cure to do pastrami in a few days.

    Take another look at Troutman's method and try the qvq instead of the svq. The first q adds a bit to the finished product. Congrats on the Joule; I think you will like it.

      I guess QVQ is what I'm doing.

      The chuckie is about to go on the SnS.... .then Sous Vide for a while, then finish on the SnS

      BFlynn, you know what detail oriented nerds we are around here. Got to use the correct acronyms or else lol. I have done a couple chuckies using that method, and they are excellent. Of course, pretty much all of the recipes on this site are excellent.

    You've gone to the dark side my friend.


    So far.....

    Dry brined

    Took it to 120. Bark isn't quite as set as I'd like..... But it was 120 already.

    Got to use my vacuum sealer that's been on the shelf for way too long.

    Bagged. Then double bagged, just in case.

      Thanks. The pecan smoke was definitely coming through.

      Now I just have to wait. I hate waiting!

      If you are going to leave the top of the pot uncovered, make sure to keep an eye on the water level. Not that I would know from experience, but waking up to the low water alarm, I have heard, is no fun.

    Just put it the PBC and be done already!

      I really have thought about that, oh, twice in the last 2 hours.....

    Oh boy I get excited when I know what’s about to happen!! Can’t wait to see the results


      Following this topic with knife and fork at the ready.

        You won't be needing the knife.

      Its been in about 30 hrs and feels pretty tender when I squeeze it.

      It squeezes more at this point than I would have imagined.
      Going to at least let it go til morning. And check at the 40 hr mark.


        I'm gonna have to call in sick today while I impatiently wait the final pic's.


          You are doing good, so far. enjoy a PBR at the bar.


            48 hours and it seems soft....

              Took out of the bag. Wasn't a lot of purge, but it WAS thick.

              Patted dry.

              There isn't a lot of bark, to speak of, but some. Not like Troutmans.
              Rub seemed thin, so I hit it with more POG.

                  Looks awesome! I’m gonna have to dig a chuckie out of the freezer.

                Bark was soft for sure, but pretty tasty.
                Very tender!

                Over all, mostly happy.

                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 Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                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.

                Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                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’.

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                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.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                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.
