  • If these are Top Sirloin Cap Steaks then you can look up Picanha which is a Brazilian Steakhouse specialty. I know there have been posts about these.  I have made them the same way you did and like them.
  • I have this same one and it works very well.  I buy my bags on Amazon - FoodVacBags brand. They have rolls and individual bags.  All excellent quality and significantly cheaper than Foodsaver bags.
  • @JMCXL said: I never thought of In a pot. Let me know the advantages  i will post a finished product. I bake most of my breads in a pot in the egg and in the house oven. I like crusty breads and cooking in a pot (for half the cooking t…
  • For those that shop at Restaurant Depot, the ones around here have free ice packs available during the hotter months.  They are small and easily pack well in the cooler.
  • My favorite local Ace store (Bombergers in Lititz, PA) also now carries it in stock and will also special order it for free store delivery if they are out of stock.
  • Another vote for Costco. We buy Salmon there about twice/month and have always been very happy with the quality and freshness. They sell an enormous amount of the fish and it is always very fresh. They usually have several varieties - some wild, som…
  • One thing I've done when I have a long FTC time is to pack the cooler with old towels, then bring water to a boil in a tea kettle and put the kettle into the cooler.  If it is going to be a really long time, you can reboil the kettle and put it back…

  • First, try recalibating it.  Put it in some boiling water and use a pair of pliers to adjust the nut on the back to the correct temperature.  There are many replacement thermometers available if you need to buy one - Smokeware has one.
  • @Hans61 said: I’m in the rewards program and I’ve never gotten a reward or coupon  I strongly suggest you logon to and make sure your account information is correct. I get both email and mailed coupons every month.
  • I used to have a Maverick and replaced it with a Smoke.  The range is far better and it is easier to use.  I like the receiver since it hangs around my neck and doesn't get left behind when I walk around the house.  The range is fine for me, so I di…
  • mine come out very crispy without the use of corn starch although I do cook them raised direct.  I wouldn't even try Baking Powder since it has so much sodium - I already have enough sodium in the rub.
  • I love Costco's party wings. I throw them in a pot with mustard and coat them then toss in some simple rub (I don't like spicy food).  I cook them on an AR on 2 racks raised.  flip them a few times and swap the racks a few times until they are done.…
  • I like the ones from Costco that are called Party Wings.  Very easy to cook and very tasty.
  • I use Roboform and it is great.  It synchronizes to all my devices and computers.  Logon is automatic to most every site. 
  • Those look great.  See if you can get your next ones uncut - I think they cook better than individual ribs.
  • @Brisket_Fanatic said: WeberWho said: Nice find on the chuck ribs. Everything looks awesome! Thanks, Costco on a Saturday they have displays setup.  Still trying to find someone that sells plate ribs. The chucks are really fatty…
  • Preparation was a lot less than a brisket because there was almost no trimming to be done.  It also provides 2 good chuck eye steaks if you wish to cut them before cooking.
  • The lens issue is very important both from a cost and a portability view.  You need to consider what types of photography you wish to do. I enjoy wildlife photography and also close-up macro work with insects, etc.  This is why I like a long zoom ca…
  • Thanks for the comments. I should mention that I used Post Oak for the smoke.
  • I just ordered some locally and it is still $24.99.  Also will be using a $10 off (total order) coupon from Ace Rewards.
  • Remember that if you get a camera with interchangeable lenses, you will spend more money on lenses than on the camera.  Also when you have a few lenses, you will find that you always have the wrong lens on the camera and have to take the time to swi…
  • @kweitz , Was it really packaged with a dark liquid or is that just the bottom of the packaging tray?  I would think if it was really soaked in a wine or other sauce that they would have to list it in an ingredient list.  It would also make the meat…
  • Back to a question about a Chuck Roll. I read that most people were wrapping it in foil at an IT of 160.  Has anyone tried using butcher paper instead.  Would it help preserve the bark better?
  • @Mattman3969 said: Thanks guys.  I guess no one is using any bowl type containers with their foodsaver ? I haven't used them for soup, but I have used a few different containers that Foodsaver sells. Most of them have been junk.  I use…
  • @lkapigian, I'm considering cutting it in half to make the cooking time less and I don't need that much cooked all at once. I'd rather cook the other half and eat it freshly cooked rather than as leftovers. I'll probably cook it some day next week…
  • I use a Foodsaver also but I put liquids in bags and don't seal them until I have frozen them since the vacuum sealing will suck the soup out of the bag if it is in liquid form. Once frozen, I seal them and return them to the freezer.
  • @NPHuskerFL, Thanks for the advice.  I'd prefer it sliced but pulled would be OK.  I know there are a couple of different sections of the Chuck Roll and I thought that some parts might slice and others would better be pulled.  I'm most interested i…
  • Thanks for the picture. That is definitely now on my todo list.
  • Looking forward to any photos from recent cooks.  I've added Chuck Roll to my todo list - sounds like a nice one to try.
  • @lkapigian, Thanks for the info.  The one at BJs (they were USDA Choice) seemed a little expensive so I guess I'll wait until I get to Restaurant Depot to see what they are charging.
