Here is my ghetto sous vide. It's a crock pot which is controlled by my fermentation temp. controller and the fountain pump that I used for recirculating ice water in the summer is recirculating the water in the pot. This was just a test run to see if I wanted to build a more permanent solution. F'ing delicious!

This is what I want to do. I have a crock pot, but it is programmable, so if the power shuts off it never comes back on until you reprogram it. I need to just go to Salvation Army and pick up one like this for $4.

Mine was $5 at goodwill. We too have a fancy digital crockpot that wouldn't work.

Sometimes simple is better!
Lots of guys try using fancy space heaters to heat their ferm chambers... only to find out the little 10 dollar job at wally-world actually do the job best. For the exact same reason. Just a manual on-off switch.

I do like the programmable one for normal food because we can cook on high for a few hours and then just keep warm until we get home from work, etc. But yeah for this simple is way better.

Definitely the best steak I've ever cooked in my life, and so incredibly easy!

Does anybody use their Brutus 10 or recirc setup for sous-vide? Was thinking of trying it on my B-10 but the temp does fluctuate a few degrees.

I bet it would hold close enough to do the job. Try it out and see if it works. It's not like you are losing any major investment by just trying it. After all... you still get to eat a steak in the end! lol...
