Well, I must say I'm impressed with how well this turned out. Nothing but beautiful medium rare juicy beefy melt in your mouth goodness! I can't wait to try this again. I know I have some boneless chicken breast in the freezer.
Sorry for the crappy pictures.

Dam, this forum is expensive! As an avid cook i have read up on Sous Vide but have not attempted, tonight i ordered up a bunch of stuff to build a ghetto rig. I have a circulation pump coming on a slow boat from China so i have some time to work out a design and dig up a cooler.
Will post up a build as i go.

So has anyone played around with adding a layer of ping-pong balls as an insulator atop their sous vide? I keep seeing this show up on a few blogs and videos. This pic is from Nathan Myhrvold, the author of Modernist Cuisine's food lab;

The Water Circulator
A circulator from Polyscience designed to maintain a water bath temperature to within a tenth of a degree. The ping pong balls floating on top serve as an insulator, helping the bath to maintain its temperature.
Oh yeah, if you want a cooking nerd woody, check out the entire slide show of their food "playground."

Well, since I broke my lid this may be an option.

I made boneless chicken breast in my sv a couple times now. So moist and tender. Just fantastic.
I just now put a 4 lb. rump roast in for a 24 hr. soak. Can't wait!

That seems a bit excessive to me. I mean really what difference would it make if the temp flucuated a degree or two. No one would ever be able to tell a difference.

Evidently one of it's main functions is to limit evaporation of the water in long cooking times. Having done 24-48 hour sessions, I can attest to losing a lot of water every 6-8 hours, if cooking a large piece of protein it can be a problem, especially in my coffee urn setup. I've woken up and found only have the roast still submerged. I'm interested in trying it.
