2-day ribs! 1 whole pork top rack (halved to fit in better) rubbed with pimenton smoked paprika, cooked at 55c with some bbq sauce. here's my cool invention, for those like me (ie most of us) who have non-chamber vacuum sealers and forgot to freeze the sauce in advance, take a tip from wyeast and make a smack pack! get a cheapy sandwich bag and fill with sauce/marinde, tie it off. vac the meat together with the bag, then smack it, spread it out. these ribs are now in my speidel braumeister to be flash barbequed in two days!! pics and boasting to follow...

OH MY GOD!!!!! THAT IS FREAKING BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



You could use little ziplock sammich bags even, which should pop really easily. I even have some really mall ziplock bags, 2.5 inches wide I think, that I store small things in, and also freeze the leftover small cans of chipotles in adobo or tomato paste in.

What do you mean by a "get started" guide?
How to make a ghetto one like we did? If that's the case, this thread is the best out there, and it's pretty self explanatory- You use a temp controller to power something that can heat water, seal your food in bags, cook at the desired length of time, then usually brown whatever to get the maillard reaction.

How to cook sous-vide? I like J Kenzie Alt-Lopez's various write ups on Serious Eats That's what I first used to get started...


...from there start googling, and read, read read. There's a ton of info to be found out there, I usually google "sous vide XXXXX" with XXXXX being whatever I want to cook, and that nets me some good articles.

Have fun

Thanks man! Did more research and I'm going to try this super ghetto method with a steak and a boneless chx brst today. Obviously I have to have a lot hotter water for the chicken.

thanks! i was pretty pleased with myself, was just running out the door when i realized i forgot to get the ribs going, it just came to me in a flash. yeah those ziploc bags for weed or numismatics would probably work great.

these was goood! as the weather was nice (for once in this maritime drizzleland of a climate) i took the mini-weber to the park to show off my vacuum bags to the minions. the ribs were so fricking tender!! could cut them with a spoon, but the racks held together fine on the grill. then all the meat magically fell off the bone at the right moment. threw on a couple bratwurst as well, why not.

Has anyone done a 12 hour steak yet? I'm thinking of setting one up to do at some point this week for the heck of it. I've been reading about 55 degrees C for 12 hours.

Also also has anyone tried to stuff a pork chop, bad it and water bath it, then brown?

This forum is amazing! I just bought most of the parts recommended but I have some questions about the water pump. I see most people talk about a cheap one from petsmart etc but when I researched on the web a lot of people complained about them melting. Has anyone found one that is good at sous vide temps ? Are just air pumps enough?
