I’ve seen some guidance that for shorter cooks to add 50% of the fresh time (or a 1.5 multiplier), but not needing to add any time to the long cooks. Anyone‘s experience with that either way on a chucky?

I had the same question , but Bear answered it for me . Maybe an hour , but really not needed . I was also surprised that it didn't drop temp much , and recovered fast when I added the meat .
Good luck , post it up when you do it .

I don't even think it's an hour and definitely no need for 1.5x. I think SV is probably faster at defrosting than the microwave.

Will do ... Last time I did 131 for 50 hours, and it could have been a bit more tender, so going to bump a smidge, so a bit late to start now ... probably into the hot tub tomorrow for Sunday dinner.
