    The Robot Coupe is a beast. Way overkill for home use. It also has a shredder attachment- it can shred enough cabbage for 50 people in a few minutes. It is also an incredible salsa maker, although I do tend to use the Vitamix Vita Prep more often for salsa. The beauty part of the Vitamix is it is self cleaning, just rinse, add water and a dash of detergent and place on the base and turn it back on for a little bit and its clean.

    Beautiful cart you got there, and it's free?! Love the shelf for the bags.

    I'm actually a little embarrassed that I got a full refund. The store was somewhat backed into a corner- with the box being destroyed, there was no way to ship the table back. When I look back at the photos of the shipping boxes, They plainly didn't care what condition the table arrived in. It's hard to imagine a company like Web restaurant could be operated like it apparently is- how can they afford to simply give away a expensive order- simply because they did not do a good job packaging.

    This is the chamber sealer at the butcher shop I took the hogs to.

    Looked into those, unfortunately you need 220 volt 3 phase.

    I don't know if it is an insurance scam or what, maybe the $99/month membership fee that pays the bills.  I ordered about $1k worth of random stuff during my free membership month, it all came packed terribly.

    3 phase is where the deals are. I think @nolaegghead has 3 phase but not sure he has tapped into it yet. You can buy industrial sheet for nickels

    Couldn't agree more on how some companies don't care about proper packing.

    My most recently experience... two separate orders from same company, total five boxes with two 40lb bags of pellets in each box. So far three boxes arrived and two missing. Looking at the 3/3 ripped boxes below I think the other two boxes probably fell apart and lost their contents.


    Just opened one bag and transferred to a bucket, surprisingly the pellets are in great shape, there's virtually zero dust at the bottom of the bag!

    I've got a 3# chuck roast I'm tempted to do in the SV- but I'm afraid I won't like the results- 
    Does anyone have any experience with this cook?

    Whenever chuck roasts are on sale I buy two - one for Mississippi roast in the Instant Pot and the other to sous vide.
    I do those frequently. I usually run 137°F for 48 hours. Some folks only do 24 hours. Some folks sometimes do 72 hours. I've tried all three and settled on 48 hours.
    I consider it to be a poor man's prime rib. I generously coat each side with Montreal then bag it. I don't always bother to get a good sear but do always make a big batch of chimichurri to go with it.
    Since you apparently have some trepidation about this I have no idea if you would like the results but you never know until you try.

    Do you sear before or after sous vide?  I have always seared post sous vide.  I pull it, let it rest to drop the temp, pat ot dry, then sear.  As hot and fast as I can.

    Yeah man, the industrial market where the minimal power standard was 3-phase are going in and out of business....there's plenty of everything, mostly fixed appliances. Just have to monitor and jump on a deal.  Or build relationships.

    In my opinion, that's the best way, when you can. Unless you're going for smoke and smoke them (half cook or so) before bagging, maybe aggressive enough to build up some bark. But I suppose even better would be refreshing that bark on the end.

    Good use of space!

    I have the same problem, but have resisted the urge on the chamber sealer.  My tax refund may go toward one, but I am trying to resist as I just don't have room.

    One thing that worries me, does the fat render out at this temp/time? That is my main dislike of doing Ribeye's in the Sous Vide- I can't get the fat to render in the short post sear.

    Any hard fat won't render out. I used to trim out any hard fat beforehand but I don't bother with that anymore as it is easier to just trim away any thick fat when serving/eating. The fat from marbling is not a problem (to me anyway).

    I'm going to give it a try- the worst that can happen is a wasted roast and 48 hours. No risk no reward they say
