  1. Smoke em if you have them.

    Started this last night in an SV bath at 129/3. Shocked it and tossed it in the fridge overnight. Added a lil redneck rub to it and pointed it at the smoker.

    Chuckie should be ready by dinner. IMG_20180412_160458.jpg IMG_20180413_121857.jpg IMG_20180413_123100.jpg

  14. The SV bath last night was 129* for 3 hours.. the Chuckie was pulled at 125* internals today but let me suggest that you not use that for a guide unless that chuckie was speaking Japanese a couple months prior. That was a 3 pound 21 day dry aged Wagyu Chuck.. When I SV an Angus, I will go 155* for 3 days instead of 3 hours... Totally different animal.
  15. Here are a couple different Angus chucks IMG_20180321_172410.jpg I SV'd a few weeks back in that 135 ish range. 48-60 hours in the bath. IMG_20180204_104243.jpg

    I like Chuck well done with the fat all rendered.
    Usually 325 for 3 or 4 hours or in a crock pot for 5-8 hours does it how I like it.
    That looks pretty good in the pic. :cool:

    Would be nice to see it still in the bags and see it get dumped out of the bags

  17. If I smoke a Chuck, it gets handled like a brisket.. all the way up. I would never cook Wagyu like that though. No need. It's like eating butter.

    As far as searing after SV, I have several methods depending on the cook. By far my favorite is my modified sear station. IMG_20171217_134000.jpg
