This is a great artical. Well written and thought out, but I do not agree with your comment on vaping. For future reference, vaping isn’t “a foreign substance”. All the ingredients are known and just as safe as marijuana, as long as you make it at home with organic ingredients. It has only three needed ingredients. Vegetable glycerin (organic food grade… glycerine dude, made the same way as the glycerine you use), water based or oil based tinctures of organic food stuff such as peppermint, mint leaf extract, or organic juice. That’s it. Vegetable glycerine is used for nebulizers for asthma patients, and in many medications. It has been proven IF you add nicotine, which many people who vape do not, that you cannot get second hand nicotine from someone vaping. Some suppliers also use propaline glycol (not even close to the same as propaline ethynol used in cars) which is ALSO safe. The only down side is some people have allergies to it like me. So we just but the ones that don’t have it. No big deal. We actually know exactly what goes into it. I am not a seller or a supplier. I make my own at home for my own personal use. Try it and do your research. Stop jumping on ignorance and understand the science.
The Anova Precision Cooker Wi-Fi is the best bet for most home cooks due to its low price, relatively small size, and flexibility. It’s one of the cheapest ways to get into sous vide cooking, and thanks to an innovative adjustable attachment system, this version of the Anova cooker works with a much smaller volume of water than the earliest iteration did—so now you can cook with as little as 2½ inches of water in almost any container. The Precision Cooker Wi-Fi has an intuitive interface with simple, scroll-wheel control. It also offers a beep alert when water has come to temperature, circuit-saving lower wattage, and quieter performance. The Precision Cooker Wi-Fi is made by a lab-equipment manufacturer with a reputation for accurate and long-lasting gear, which is important for precise cooking.
Great demonstration, thanks. However, recently I did what was supposed to be a 72-hour brisket bath at 136 degrees. After about 12 hours I noticed bubbles in the bag and by the next day the bag blew up like a balloon. I suspended the bath and after opening the bag the smell was terribly putrid – $35 into the garbage bin. I guess either by my handling or the butcher shop some bad little bugs were left on the outside of the roast. I’ve read that by placing the roast in boiling water it would kill any bacteria before bagging but nowhere could I find a reliable time to do that; suggestions ran from twenty seconds to 10 minutes. My question is do you recommend this procedure for your prime rib roast and if so how long do you need to boil it, Thanks again.
