Reverse the basic sequence. What about searing or Egging or smoking or grilling or browning, etc. to add flavor first until you reach say 130F or so IT at say a half inch deep and then finish off in the SV to a uniform IT of 142F ?
I have not done either but I love low and slow. BBQ so much that I can't see ever giving it up. A brisket would be like a 72 hour cook and SV too and I'm not normally that patient.
Sous vide steak 101 here
Great article Newport! Anyone who wants to know the essence of SV steak, give this a read. Informative but in simple terms.
Cent-Tex looking for your real world experience do you like ribs and brisket better with sous vide and a finish maillard sear on the egg. Just wondering then I would just finish it up on my mini. I think your drunken brisket was old style low and slow on the egg. Just wondering your perspective on preference with different standard proteins. Thanks in advance.
