    Any man on here who prefers French underwater bag cooking to low and slow wood smoking might want to question his sexuality? Seriously. If it's the end result then use an oven. If it's time honored, fire tending, smoke smelling, skillful cooking labor,then your're in the right place. I'd suggest running away from this cooking technique faster than the French ran away from the Germans.

    I've never actually read anything that ignorant on these forums, that is if it was serious.

    I am game Case!

    Maybe we can use one of those huge vacuum bags for the bankets to seal the hog in. It might take a few days to get the full effect. Maybe a way to kill time you can teach me the fine art of the "Mini". I have a pretty decent pizza dough recipe. Been known to be diverse enough to be able to cook more then BBQ. I have also been playing with a concept dish of Fried Chicken and Dumplings.

    Yep even ignorant folks are entitled to their opinion, just wish they wouldn't clutter up an ongoing USEFUL thread such as this with USELESS statements.

    Its a shame but his insults were threefold, suprised the Mods haven't jumped on this one as I am sure it violates forum Policy.

    If you are serious, to be safe, read up on it a bit more because thickness of meat comes into play when Sous Vide Cooking.

    Yep. That's what makes a true patriot...not using French sounding cooking techniques.

    That makes all andouille makers...what?

  16. I agree but it doesn't bother me a bit, I actually love to set back and watch some folks wallow in their willful ignorance. It makes me smile! :biggrin:

  18. Call me an effeminate Frenchman if you would like, but I have a question for those still interested in the original topic...what are your thoughts / experience with rubs and sous vide? I've played around with several different combinations / methods and have noticed the steak is much juicier if I season after the bath....but then I don't get the flavor of the rub through the steak as much. I thoguht the solution might be to cook, season then sear but that didn't quite give what I was looking for. Now contemplating making two varieties of rub - one with salt and one without, the intention being to rub without salt, cook, rub with salt then sear.

    Anyone have any thoughts / experience?

    For chicken I have found that fresh herbs penetrate well.
    For beef and pork I have been very conservative with spices so I can't reallygive aadvice on this other than be conservative with spicing prior to sous vide. Some things may have a negative impact on flavor.
    What I have been doing that gives better mouth feel and flavor is to pre sear Sous vide then sear again. Believe it or not you have less heat penetration on the post sear if you presear resulting in a more even cooking.
    I have tried teriyaki and smoking prior to Sous vide as well and neither was any better than the ones without seasoning.
    If I have time I will post my last chicken cook
  20. I've found the same as SQWIB with pre-sear and post sear combinations. As to herbs or rubs I find that to get penetration into beef, pork, chicken you usually need some fat and salt to act as a delivery vehicle to get flavor into the meat. However some things such as garlic do often not taste as good as other techniques. I've tried marinade, pre-sear, and post for pork / tougher beef cuts and been impressed with marinades that have a lot of flavor but don't have a lot of acid or you end up with mushy protien by the time it's done.
