Trying out pulled pork in the Sous Vide and will finish in the oven. Put it in yesterday afternoon and will take it out, dry, reseason, and bake for serving tonight. Thus far the most difficult part was finding the right size pot for the pork. Using my 5 gallon pot I started extract brewing with.

PS: I noticed over the weekend the older model Anova was running $110 almost everywhere. It must have been a sale as now it appears to be $150.

FWIW - the recipe is a little salty. I think if we make it again I will cut it by at least half.

Ran Drew's chicken at 151F for an hour for four boneless skinless breasts in two packages. We'll see how the results are once my wife takes one to work tomorrow.

The Anova Nano keeps popping into my feed. Might have to pick one up after release when it goes on sale for veggies or small meals.

Pulled two steaks directly from the freezer and seasoned. Ran them at 125F for almost 4 hours and then seared for about a minute per side. They were perfect.

Ran the pork loin again at 140F. Did not have time to thaw it properly so I seasoned it thoroughly and let it run an extra half hour. It went at least 2 hours at temp and was fantastic after I seared it for a few minutes.
