      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Ok

I checked it out on ewetoob and it doesn't make sense to me.

You vacuum seal the bag, plop it in a plastic tote of water, throw in a $200 glorified fish tank heater, cook it for 2-3x longer than any other method, then remove, dunk in ice water and then finish cooking it in a frying pan or on the grill.

It takes 3x the equipment, leaves more things to clean up and this is supposed to be a better way to cook? 

 

I guess I'm missing something.

I guess you are.    Have you ever had food that was overcooked?  Salmon, Chicken, Turkey?   Gets sort of dry?      Ever cook a beef roast and it is tough?  

Sous vide keeps that from happening

So does watching your food like a hawk using conventional methods. If you have to bag your food and submerge it in the fish tank to keep from burning it then cooking might not be your thing.

Then you can tell that to all the professional chefs that use sous vide.

Lots of "professionals using a metal drum and charcoal to cook so your comment means nothing. Lots of ways to cook food but try your Dr Suess Verde method without using a grill or a frying pan to fix what the water bag can't accomplish and get back to me with the results.

The salmon I have cooked turns out great, no searing required.    Likewise chicken breast.    Steaks get seared but the end result of the combination is superior to just grilling or pan frying.  

At least you aren't making spurious allegations of food safety issues.  

Howcome you so mad about sous vide?  Seems like a silly thing to be so upset about.

Not mad at all and I don't have a problem with you doing it, but from a practical standpoint it looks to waste a lot of time and resources to get results you could get from conventional methods with less time, less equipment and less wasted water. 

This isn't a reinvention of the wheel, it's just a much more complicated way of putting the air into the tube.

Souza recommends using a meat thermometer to get the center of the cut to just 120 degrees

Easiest way to do that is sous vide.  Seal in bag, throw in 120 degree water.  Go watch tv and drink a beer or other beverage of your choice, come back when you are ready and it is perfect. 

 

Wasting water?   Are you serious?   Of all the reasons, that is the worst.

I don’t think this would fly with most of the people I eat most dinners with but it just might with two of the better cooks I know.

I’m one who prefers my food cooked JUST enough instead of killing it all over again.  This interests me.

the 120 bothers me....

Preference.  120 is towards the rare side.  I do 129.  

Great deal on Anova circulators at anovaculinary.com (and probably amazon as well) 

I have the cheap one, bluetooth 800 watts.

Anyway, here is a writeup about cooking salmon.   A few degrees make a big difference.

Get one and try it.  You will love it.   Makes cooking nice stuff easy and reliable.   They don't cost a lot.   Right now the Anova  is 109 for the bluetooth one and 129 for wifi.   Control it manually or use an app on your phone.   I just do it manually.

Might have to get a Sous thingy and give it a try one of these days. Today the turkey is going on the Weber using the rotisserie. Charcoal with chunks of hickory for flavor. Charcoal will be on the sides and a drip pan will be under the bird. I always put 2 boxes of Swanson's chicken broth in the drip pan for my gravy. Should be ready after the Vikes game or at least that is the plan.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
