    Todd, you hit me at the right time. I have been 'romancing' these tumblers for a while, you made an offer I couldn't resist!

    Also I just got your 12" tube smoker and used it for some Polish sausage yesterday. Other than getting it in a strong  updraft and making it flame up at first it worked like a charm. I can't believe the smoke and it was consistant all through the smoke.

    Thanks again for the great products and outstanding service!

  6. I am following your BBB vacuum tumbler experiment on another thread. I also just ordered the vacuum tumbler from your site. How is the unit going to work on (1) curing one pound pieces of pork belly for bacon and (2) marinating chicken parts for BBQ?        Thanks For your help...........Paul

    I have been researching these for a little while now and have decided that I want one. I have found two, the amaz-n version and the Marinade Express on amazon. The link is below.



    What is the difference between these two. Is it worth the extra money going with the Marinde Express?
     
  8. Looks like a newer model with an electric vacuum pump. For 1/3 the price i bought the "older" model...Still brand new.  Those small electric vacuum pumps can't draw as good a vacuum as the manual ones, and they wear out faster. A HAVC quality pump costs several hundred alone.

    The instructions say it's a 4# capacity, but I can easily fit 5# in the container

    Chicken legs and wings are fantastic in the vacuum tumbler

    We've also marinated steaks and chicken breasts

    My Bacon Curing Experiment was not a great success.  The finished BBB tasted more like ham than bacon.  It's resting in the fridge overnight, and I'll test fry again tomorrow

    I'm going to try another batch with more brine and spices in the brine

    The Marinade Express has a built in vacuum pump.  It takes about 3 minutes to suck all the air out of the container. 

    The AGS Vacuum Tumbler had a Hand Vacuum Pump that;s very effective.  You can also use a FoodSaver Hand Vac on the container to remove the air.

    $200 buys a lot of meat!

    Thanks Johnson. I noticed on the Express that you can get a 20#  tub with it. It costs an extra $150 but it would be perfect for large butts and brisket. would these be compatable with the amazen? If not how hard would it be to make a large vacuum tub?

    Marinade ExpressTM 20 lb. Chef’s Drum.

    i have used these in the past and i find that it the lid screws on they are ok. but if the lid is held on by vacuum only they have some problems. just my 2 cents.

  15. Just ordered a tumbler and it's still $99.99 at checkout.  Hope this thing works!  If so, I'm gonna love it!  Hard to believe it can marinade meat that quickly.  Hurry up mail man!  LOL

    I ordered this one here when I spotted it a month or so ago.  Used it on a family marinate for BBQ chicken.  Normally I would marinate the chicken in the fridge for 24hrs.

    I did the task in 1.5 hrs in this tumbler and it worked awesome. 

    It was to noisy for the kitchen though so I set it up in the garage.

    tumbled thirty minutes then ten minutes in the freezer, then another thirty minutes tumble and ten more in the freezer then the final thirty minutes.

    manufacturer recommends a five or ten minute break on the machine after thirty minutes of operation anyway and the ten minutes in the freezer kept the temps in the safe range on the chicken.
     
  17. Hey Todd, or anyone for that matter, does anyone know if you can purchase a second/replacement canister for the ASG Tumbler?
