    temp?

    Looks good...ping pong balls - that's hilarious.  I'll tell ya what works even better - that heavy duty bubble wrap.  I'll try to post a pic - not much heat escapes at all with this stuff.  and it's free.  f yeah

    @nolaegghead 140 degrees do you think that will work or should I jack it up? I actually got the ping pong ball idea from you.

    don't go higher than 140. i cooked some at 127 for 48 hours with the sidekic, removed from water bath and seared in a ci pan, They turned out incredible, second to only the ones i did for 70 hours.

    best of luck, its hard to wait that long but the results are well worth it with the short ribs.

    Elk shortribs? short of flying west to bag one and flying it back i don't have access to them. any chance you picked them up via mailorder or somewhere located in the southeast? would love to try them!

    I've done short ribs at a couple of different times and temps. My preference is  the 72 hr method at 132-134F. I've done 140-142F for both 48 and 60 hours. Again, I liked the longer time, but neither were tough.

    That's one of the "problems" w. SV. "Drat, I've only got 60 hours till serving, now what can I do?"

    I got really lucky and received an elk "care package" in exchange for some heirloom tomato's that I grew, so I do not have a mail order site for you.  

    @double I cannot wait to see how this cook turns out :)

    47 hours and everyone was blown away damn they tasted good. I felt the steaks were over cooked but everyone else loved them. The short ribs will be repeated for sure! Whiskey flowing cigars smoked dang what a great evening!

    Gracious.... Those look incredible. They look marinaded... Did you give them anything else other than the original seasoning?

    I wouldn't go over 4 hours under 131 F.  There's a well documented safety issue, although I'm sure the 131 F threshold is for some obscure species of bacteria.
