I'm putting some pics up from souvide cooks then searing. Sear is at 1550F in a Korlick steakhouse cooker.
If you read this far, read a little more. My father passed recently. He was an old school Huey door gunner in Vietnam.
We didn't have alot in common other than war stories. I retired out of NSW as an HM, Corpsman. (Medic).
I called in a favor in my area. 2 days from now, Im going up in a Huey to spread his ashes and have jumpers go out trailing a flag for him.
Thanks if you read this far.

One of my buds was a door gunner for two tours. Thanks to your Father and yourself for your service. 'John' never picked up a gun after he returned home and he took about 30 years to talk about Vietnam, and then it was brief reflection. What a fitting way to spread your Father's ashes.

Oh, BTW you look like you have mastered sous vide! Nice pics.

Food does look great! But what's better is the service you and your dad gave for this country! Thank you both for that! What's better is the way you are honoring him. And I'm sorry for your loss...went through that with one of my parents this year also.

I never say that . Hate when someone does . I know a lot of vets , from WW2 . Korea and Vietnam .
They don't want to be thanked for " that "

It’s not easy finding a Huey, good job. That is a very nice tribute to your father.

Ya, lol, not easy. There is actually a favor system. Save a life, kind of unlimited favors w/ respect.
Run through incoming fire to bring firepower, life long debt w/ respect.
I called in a favor w/ 3 people to arrange this flight.

Sorry to hear about your loss. My uncle was a Crew Chief in Nam he didn't talk about it much but when he did you listened very carefully. (Some day his rotor chain bracelet will be mine and I will wear it with honor)
I was just a little guy when the war was going on in that crap hole of a country.

Thank you and your father for your service and what an awesome thing you're doing for him that is very cool.

By the way your food looks amazing.
Dan
