    Smoked + Sous Vide Brisket

    I know people are gonna accuse me of using salt for a fake ring haha. It’s absurd! Never got one that strong before.
  3. Gochujang and Miso Sous Vide + Smoked Brisket. 6 pound brisket point, rubbed with gochujang, miso, and Meat Church Holy Cow smoked 6 hours at 180°F with oak. Bagged up and in the Anova at 155°F/36 hours, then chilled to 70°F and smoked at 350°F back to 155°F to firm the bark up. Intense flavor and sooooo tender. Check out that jiggle! The gochujang and miso didn’t come through as much as the beef and smoke, which is a good sign I suppose! Crazy bark too, and smoke ring almost looks fake! 82967A3C-FF0D-4A04-A35D-3ECCF3CC7FC8.mp4

    Brisket and Wings!

    Smoked + Fried Wings. Rubbed with @MeatChurch Gospel and @carnivorerub Red. Smoked @ 275 for an hour, then flash fried to crisp the skin. Smoked Brisket. First run on the Treager, and I’m impressed. Bought a whole packer brisket and removed the flat. Rubbed with Meat Church BBQ Holy Cow and Lane’s Brisket rub. Smoked at 225°F for 6 hours, then ramped it up to 350°F to finish the bark. No wrap. Pretty juicy and tender for a flat!

    Fried Chicken Two Ways

    Whipped up some delicious fried chicken over the weekend! Used the Akorn to heat the oil in a dutch oven. Full recipe here: https://recipes.anovaculinary.com/recipe/sous-vide-momofuku-style-fried-chicken

    House Cured Sous Vide + Smoke Pastrami

    The fat render happens at lower temps over long time, resulting in a more moist and tender product.

    That's it!

    Beef Wellington

    The chuck was super tender, and way more flavor than tenderloin. The long sous vide cook was totally worth it!

    Beef Wellington

    Beef Wellington. Chuck roast seasoned with salt and cooked 131°F / 48 hours. Pulled, chilled, and seared. Diced mushroom, shallot, and garlic and cooked until all moisture was gone. Spread spicy mustard over the beef and then wrapped beef in prosciutto and duxelles, then tossed in freezer for 30 minutes. Removed, wrapped in puff pastry, added a puff pastry lattice, then baked at 475°F for 15 minutes until golden. Album here https://imgur.com/gallery/wx7RXhh

    Gochujang Fried Chicken

    Gochujang Fried Chicken. Breast cooked 140 for a couple hours, into an egg wash, then dredged in seasoned panko. Flash fried ~400 until golden and then dipped in gochujang.
  14. House Cured Pastrami. Brisket cured for 10 days and sous vide 60 hours at 140°F. Rubbed with a black pepper and coriander rub, then smoked 4 hours at 225°F. Insanely tender, and SO flavorful.
  15. Pulled pork. Smoked 5 hours at 225F, then sous vide with the @anovaculinary overnight at 165F. Opened up and finished on a very hot smoker (~400F) to crisp the bark. Many said it was the best BBQ they’d ever have.
