In case anybody's looking for one, Groupon has a sale going for a foodsaver system for $58, way cheaper than what I paid for the same package

Looks great, Keith!

Why would you raise the water temp? Are you looking for less rare or something else?

a little less rare and a bit more "tender" or "sous vide-like texture"....it was about 3 inches thick which I think affected the overall outcome...it was good, but coulda been a bit "better"

Looks great! I understand the desire for a bit higher temp. I've noticed that some stuff comes out a bit odd from a texture standpoint with Sous Vide, even if it's technically cooked at the right temp.

For the bone, whenever I'm worried about that I put a couple layers of foil on the "pokey" part.

Did sous vide scallops for the first time last night.
124 for 30 minutes.
Finished in the cast iron skillet with a little butter. Salt & pepper.
Half were coated in almond meal.
Both were tasty.

I've always been skeptical of sous vide for smaller items (like scallops). My thinking is that with something relatively small, the skillet would have a more pronounced effect. And if that IS the case, why sous vide at all vs. just tossing them in the skillet for a bit longer?

Interested to hear your thoughts, Peter.

Your alternate approach is sound, Vin. The same could be said for ahi and swordfish.
However, the sear on both sides took all of 90 seconds. I found Sous vide to be worth the effort in this case. Scallops were decent size - U15.

Made a beef roast the other day using the curing salt, I don't think I used enough, I should have weighed it out for future reference. The roast turned out fine, it was very tender but that was probably due to the 11 hour cook time, no "smoke ring" or anything indicating a different process than normal seasoning. I'll try again in the future giving it a thicker coating instead of a sprinkle

The Serious Eats method says "Bacon can be cooked directly in its package"

Since most bacon is packaged in overlapping layers does this affect the amount of time it needs to be in the water bath?

I've gone as short as 12-14 hours and as long as 36, never saw any adverse effects from the overlapping.

This link was posted on a FB group I belong to. Thought some of you might find this useful, especially the temp/time charts.
