    Do you probe your fattys or just use an instant read?

    I usually let it fly until the bacon is done. I do probe(insta-read) occasionally and shoot for 165* especially with hamburger. With sausage I usually go by the bacon. Which is why I like thin sliced. If your bacon isn't crisping up then you can always pop it under the brioler for a minute or so to crisp it up.

    I NEVER tire of reading about good food!

    and Fatties are the bomb!

    These are soon on my list!

    Your Fatties are an inspiration!

    Thank you for the tutorial! It well explains how the process goes and you make it look easy!

    one question:
    when you slice and vac seal, do you then freeze? If so, what is the best way to prepare the frozen slices?

    this may become a staple at my camp!

    Thanks nanuk, Yes I do freeze. Most of the time I bring them to work for lunch and just use the microwave. I have reheated them in a toaster-oven and they were good, it just took to long.
