In fact, I'm doing (I think) my 6th SV since I got my machine a couple weeks ago, right now, as I sit here and type
I actually love discussion forums, but was really not able to find many for SV, and had held off on this one, because I was afraid to say, I'm not using an Anova brand machine. I'm loving my machine so far, but wont say the name if its not cool. I have read nothing but great things about the Anova brand though, and would definitely consider it for a future machine, should mine ever fail, or for a main SV machine, and use my current one as a backup.
Anyway, I will be back later to ask questions.
And will come back with a report on my current SV. It is a 5lb beef roast, which I cold smoked for 3 hrs, and am now SV'ing for 21 hrs, at 138 degrees. Will sear with a military grade torch (no, not really, but it is pretty crazy though for a few minutes this evening.
Forgot to say, but my other big obsession nowadays is eating Keto. I always loved meat, but eating more now than ever. And its great that I can turn cheap, tougher cuts, into super tender, juicy meals
