  • Canugghead said: What temp/time for the sausage? How was the skin?
  • GregW said: I wish I could give you hope for the steak using the Sous Vide. Lately I've started experimenting with the reverse sear method. Using reverse sear you get some of the benefit of SV  as well as retaining the flavor of traditional …
  • My bad @rrp! I'll fit like a glove (reg coors).  There is a "gasket" that fits over the stainless. Keeps the collected water (collects in the koozie) from running down your shirt as you tip 'em.

  • GregW said: I can give you my opinion. I have fairly extensive experience with Sous Vide. I will give you a sex analogy. Sous Vide is equivalent to sex with an extra thick condom. I hate to put it that way, but it is what it is. There is no w…
  • It will NOT fit in a golf cart beer holder, so I'm out.  @RRP, this will only conform to a standard can, so please stop drinking Evian (coors lite) and switch to ANY other lite beer in the standard size can!

  • Hi folks.  Sorry it took so long.  Long story short, I could have won a contest with the venison turds.  However, the wife wasn't fond of the balsamic taste and the recipe called for apple cider, which I did not have, so I improvised.  I will use ap…

  • Venison backstrap prepared....
  • Dam that's good.  If it can make magic out of sausage I almost can't wait to do steaks!!!
  • leeman13 said: LOL, "pretend it isn't happening".... I guess I should try the same strategy rather than trying to fight a losing battle. 2 things are a must for me in this house: 1. "yes" 2. "ok" Survived for 15 years so far using steps…

  • DoofusOfTheDay said: Okay have to ask a dumb question, since I consider myself quite the inexperienced Egger.  Resting for 15 minutes.  How does one do that without the meat getting cold? Tent of foil my friend.  It's not Ruth Chris, but i…

  • Stuckinohio said: How is the quality of the meat from Costco? We buy our beef 1/2 at a time. If Costco is halfway decent, we have considered buying bulk numbers of steak, just to have them on hand when waiting now the next steer to be killed.…

  • "I've decided to stop breathing. It's too painful. I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach."
  • Finished product (pulled at 155).  Love my new ACCURATE toys!! 
  • Foghorn said: "but I love to drink beer and make bad decisions." That makes you pretty unique around here... Ya, i feel so isolated here!
  • I go at 275 and start the bend test at 4.5 hours.  Never have foiled, never will.

  • Pghegger said: Thanks Bubba.  At first I thought the same thing but I tested it with the briskets off and still had the discrepancy. Danv23  - I will give that a try.  Any idea why you have to do that?  I assumed that the unit would work if …

  • You need to clip the pit probe to the dome thermo. I have never had an issue and been using 2 digi's for over 7 years.  I run the cable through my smokeware cap hole (can still shut it with the cable through). If using the bge cast cap, feed it thro…
  • One thing I've noticed. A greasy platesetter in my XL seems to contribute to a mold problem.  Not sure if there is a connection, but I started wrapping it after a nice clean burn and haven't seen the mold problem come back.  I'm a wrapper.
  • DoubleEgger said: Glad to hear everything was a success. @SGH is a class act.  Thanks for your post/help as well!
