    Decided to do an overnight low & slow in the Alto Sham for a big 15 pounder. Starting it at the crack of dawn when I hit the kitchen just doesn't allow enough time for it to come out the way I would like before service. When I arrived at 5:30 & stuck it with the probe the IT was 210. Turned off the warmer to just hold it till I could pull it. The whole thing pulled like a dream come true & I stuck it back in to hold till I did the finishing sauce. Defatted the gallon of pork juice & added some apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, whoosy sauce and whole grain mustard. Set it up in a hotel pan, added the sauce and filmed then foiled to hold for service at lunch. Sorry, no before pic...neglected to bring in the camera. Turned out great with not much left over...staff had PP sammies & I got a thumbs up...Yea!!

    Sorry Al, Alto Shaam is the manufacturer of the most commonly used sealed  Cook and Hold Ovens. They are variable from 100*F to 500*F and depending on model are simple Analog or programable Digital. A common use is Beef Rib Roast, set to sear at 500* for 30 mins then finish and hold at 140* for as long as needed typically oven night. Comes out Medium Rare and Butter Soft goodness with very little moisture loss. Alto Shaam now makes Smokers and Steam Injection ovens too. One unit to do just about everything except Serve, but these Babies are BIG BUCKS!...JJ

    Thanks Jimmy....I've seen some guys on here score one at a sale and convert them to smokers....great for hanging sausages in. I've got my eye on this one as 'scrap' if it ever goes belly up...lol. Although it will probably outlast me.

    Thanks Jimmy!

    "Alto Sham"---I thought it was a guy who was supposed to sing Alto in the choir, but he was really only moving his lips.  [​IMG]

    I know---strange sense of humor!  [​IMG]
