  1. Steak night. 16oz Ribeye.

    That is as good as it gets.
  2. Matambre De Cerdo

    I really like that.
  3. 20oz Ribeye

    Now that's my kind of meal. Nicely done.
  4. Multiple requirements...?

    I've faced this dilemma before and ended up buying a 2nd sous vide machine to help ease the medium rare to well done crowd. If you're only going to use 1 sous vide cooker, then choose your dinner guests wisely, ie have the medium rare folks over one night and the medium/well done crowd over on another night. Alternatively, don't go with steak, cook chicken or shrimp or anything else that doesn't require everyone to eat at different temps.
  5. Heading out tomorrow to South Bend

    Hi Dub - FWIW, you can't see the Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson AFB in one day. It's massively huge. My youngest Son lives nearby and we were there earlier this year. Wear dome confortable shoes and enjoy.
  6. My new SV container

    Nicely done KJ.
  7. Chicken wings

    I'm hungry again. Show us more.
  8. Anniversary Dinner

    You've got some mighty good friends DH, and those meals look just fantastic. I've eaten there in the past and as I recall had Albacore Tuna. It was outstanding, but when the bill came i thought they were charging me for a whole tuna :-) Anyway, Happy Anniversary to you and yours.
  9. Stuffed Red Peppers

    You're right, they look too good to eat. Nicely done.
  10. The BoardSmith end grain Cherry board

    That looks really good.
  11. Which Sous Vide to buy?

    I have both the Anova and the Joule and have the ability to use either when I cook sous vide. I've had the Anova longer than the Joule so it has been used more frequently, overall, than the newer Joule. While it's true the Joule requires use of an app on your smart phone, why some consider this to be a problem is beyond me. I don't go anywhere without my phone so it is always handy. With the Anova, if I'm going to sous vide something new, I have to look up appropriate time and temperature settings (probably using the internet) to do so. I really like the Joule app as the display of what the final result will look like is visually appealing. Regarding size of the 2, the Joule is considerably smaller and packs away in a trim case. This is great for travelling and storage. The Anova, on the other hand, is much larger overall and the cardboard "tube" that came with mine is a monster in size and reminds me of a chimney. Both machines are great for doing sous vide cooks and I would highly recommend either depending on your tastes and needs. Whichever brand you decide upon will give you a quality sous vide device.
  12. 48 Hour Beef Blade Cook

    That really looks good. I've never done a pre-sear prior to sous vide cooking followed by the more traditional post=sear, but i'm now tempted to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.
  13. Dino Beef Rib

    Yup, that's what I'm talkin' about. Excellent looking cook.
  14. Flame Boss 200-Wi-Fi

    I have a flameboss 200 and while I don't use it that often, I've never had a problem with it. The best thing I can say is that it works as advertised.
  15. 2017 Solar Eclipse - Should I be more excited?

    It wasn't a big deal for me. I went outside to see it, but it was dark so I came back in. I mean how can you see something when it's dark outside.
