    Slow N' Sear Trivia

    Slow ’N Sear does a trivia question on their instagram page periodically and yesterdays question was this:

    “The space between muscle cells in most meat is filled with a "protein water" that stores oxygen. The more there is in the cells, the redder, or darker, the meat. When dark meat is cooked, this liquid's color changes depending on what the meat's interior temperature is. When you cut into the meat, it pours out and it looks like blood......but we all know it's not, right?!

    What is this "juice" called?”

    Now I don’t mean to be nit picky, because I know that it is largely for fun and that the “answer” was probably close enough to the truth. But for the sake of complete accuracy, would the correct answer actually be myowater and not “myoglobin” given that myoglobin is the protein that carries oxygen in muscle cells, and happens to be red in color? Where as myowater is both water and myoglobin mixed together.


    I agree. So what exactly is Instagram? I thought it was mainly a picture thing. I see a lot of YouTubers commenting that they're getting their Instagram picture in.

      So it's predominantly pictures, but you can put captions beneath the pictures or videos. It's basically a social networking site where you post pictures, or videos. It's become so popular even world leaders have accounts, such as the United States president.

      tenphases that explains a lot. Mine is full of food picture.

    Most of the liquids in muscle are myowater, water laden with the protein called myoglobin. Myowater is thin and usually pink, and it doesn't coagulate like blood. It is what you see on your plate when you cut into a piece of meat fresh from the heat.

    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.

    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.
