  1. Greetings from the Great White North!

    Welcome from just down the 416 in Kemptville.
  2. Which Sous Vide to buy?

    I have the Sansaire and love it. Simple, precise and easy to read display. I don't like the idea of apps and phones when I cook, so wanted it simple. I also like the fact that it can stand on its own, or use the large clip.
  3. Cracked fire box and charcoal bowl after 5 cooks??

    My Vision is 5 years old and has had a cracked coal grate and a cracked bowl since the first year. I registered the issues with Vision when they first occurred, and Vision said they would rectify if it failed to perform because of it. So far, may hundreds of cooks later, and it has not been an issue. Let Vision know, and cook on.
  4. Cutting boards as side tables

    I think the urathane wil help them hold up, but for 20 bucks, I'm good with the project.
  5. memory foam mattress?

    @bluayeddvl Since you're in Ottawa I highly recommend trying Lapensee over in Hull. They make the mattresses on site. We've had our for three years and its hands down THE best mattress we've ever owned.
  6. After almost five years, my side tables finally packed it in, so I replaced them with some inexpensive bamboo cutting boards. I put a few coats of urathane on them and, I must say, I think they look pretty darn good and feel fairly sturdy. Not sure how long they'll hold up, but for less than 20 bucks, I can't complain.
  7. Sous Vide dangerous?

    Lol. So true. I grew up on BPA plastics and don't suffer any ill effects, ill effects, ill effects.... This Forbes article on bad BPA science is worth a read, worth a read, worth a read...
  8. Learned a big lesson last night

    Glad it wasn't more serious. Also glad you posted, because, yes, it is very easy to become complacent. Never hurts for all of us to get a real-world reminder. Been there, done that, needed the reminder.
  9. Fireproofing Your Wooden Deck

    @El_Norteno60 Candadian Tire, Lowes, HD, Rona, and Home Hardware all carry Grill Mats/Pads of one kind or another, like these: http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/master-chef-fiberglass-grill-pad-30-x-42-in-0852147p.html#srp https://www.lowes.ca/bbq-covers-gazebos/the-original-grill-pad-brown-rectangular-grill-pad_g2462873.html?searchTerm=The-Original-Grillpad
  10. Charcoal Ash Disposal - Suggestions

    Good info on the uses of wood ashes: http://homeguides.sfgate.com/plants-like-wood-ash-52280.html
  11. Spun a chicken and....

    Nice looking bird. @Woodman roughly how long did it take to cook that, and at what temp?
  12. Akorn Rotisserie

    If anyone is wondering, the Onlyfire fits the Vision Classic B perfectly.
  13. Burning pizza bottoms

    Could be too much sugar in your dough. I use two pizza stones with a separation between them. That really helps keep the bottom from burning. I used to cook at super high heat, but find that 450-500 does a nice job. Stick with it. You'll nail it.
  14. A new way to cook a chuck roast...

    @John Setzler I'm thinking that the guy in another thread whose friends are questioning the safety of plastic bags for sous vide would cringe at the thought of your use of plastic wrap. Love it. Great idea.
  15. Sous Vide dangerous?

    Their loss. More for us.
