    Meater Block Buyer Beware ***UPDATE***

    I purchased a Block this summer from the Meater website. Out of the box it wanted a firmware update but the upgrade kept failing.

    SOUS VIDE PASTRAMI, A FIRST FOR ME!

    Thanks for sharing this method. I used your basic idea but coated it with Tony Chachere Bold, Coarse Black Pepper and some Garlic Powder. I also forgot to the searing since the family vultures were circling the kitchen island. It had a pretty good kick but not enough that the kids objected. The...

    How Many Mes Owners Here?

    My controller went out on my MES so I bought Auber dual probe PID. I've been very pleased with it. If you do go with a PID I'd go for the make sure to go with at least two probes (chamber and meat) so you can set the chamber temperature and have it change to a holding temperature when the meat...

    Just an FYI about costco (In the midwest anyway)

    The Costco in Southlake Texas had prime grade packers last week. There are always plenty of packers but this was the first time I'd found prime.

    brisket prices

    I paid $1.77 per pound at Walmart in the Fort Worth, Tx area yesterday for a 13 Lb. packer brisket. It was just under $2.00 a pound a couple of weeks ago at Walmart. Costco and Sam's are usually in the $2.25-2.50 range around here.  The Walmart brisket was as good as any I've bought at Costco.

    Boneless Short Ribs

    I've been doing these with a reverse sear (1-2 hrs at 180-200 in the smoker then just a couple of minutes on a hot grill to get the IT to 125) and slicing thin medium rare slices to serve. They really come out tasty and they reheat well.

    Ribeye: Where does a steak stop and a roast begin?

    I've smoked a couple of ribeye roasts in my MES40 in the 5-6 lb range with great results. The only problem is that we have several people that like the end cut in my household. Thus I've been wondering how thin can a cut of ribeye get yet still cook better in the smoker than on the grill? Are...
