I'm doing the Thanksgiving turkey sous vide. I'm using this recipe I found
https://www.chefsteps.com/activities...est-feast-ever
I'll let you know how it turns out. I cooked 5 sides and bagged them too. I will heat them up in the immersion bath as well.

As an aside, Amazon has started early Black Friday deals. Anova and a lot of brands I don't know are on sale.

That link looks interesting, Jeff.
Let us know how your turkey turns out.

The turkey was great. Next time I'm gonna cut back on the sugar and salt. It was a bit sweet and salty, but you could tell it tenderize the flesh. Fresh sage too. One or two leaves per quarter so be fine. I browned it all under the broiler. By far the most moist bird I've ever had.

Made some brisket on Sunday, didn't plan ahead so I only ended up with 12 hours to cook it so I did it at 176* and it turned out pretty good, not fall apart but I wasn't really going for that anyways

The reason for the post is I used the curing salt again, this time not measuring and just using the amount I would have used of regular salt for a rub on the outside. I forgot to take pictures, but when I sliced it the "smoke ring" was more prevalent than the typical red/brown brisket color, really interesting to look at although I couldn't tell any other differences besides aesthetics. I'll probably keep doing it on meats like this if for nothing else than it makes it looks like a smoked brisket, but maybe mix it with some normal salt next time

This is kind of a dangerous practice that could lead to excessive nitrite levels, which could result in health issues. Prauge #1 should used at a max ratio of 1:400 by weight (about 1 tsp per 5 lb of meat) iirc.

I used probably double that, about 1sp for a 2.5LB piece, no extra added for the sear. gonna monitor more closely next time, I remembered reading something about that but I was rushing when I was prepping
