The Fusion of Sous Vide, Grilling, and Smoking Cooking Methods

Three years ago, about three months before Christmas, I saw an article on one of my favorite barbecue websites that was talking about this “new to me” cooking method called “sous vide” and how it could work well with barbecue.

I have to admit I had not heard much about it before and I was really into cooking barbecue on my ceramic grills and other cookers. One of the things that jumped out at me about this cooking method, is that it was really very similar to barbecue as it was still “low and slow” cooking, BUT with a big difference! You could actually cook meat to an EXACT internal temperature and make something like a Beef Brisket very tender BUT with a medium-rare doneness! Something you just cannot do using a grill or smoker alone! So that was enough to get me to “Ask Santa” for a Sous Vide Circulator and to try and learn more about sous vide. The rest is history.

The Secrets to Sous Vide Ramen

It’s more than just a cheap college eat, ramen has gained popularity worldwide in the food scene, and for good reason. Rich broth, creamy eggs, and the most insane pork belly topping make for a meal to remember. But let’s be honest…it’s a bit of a chore to cook and assemble all those ingredients at home. Sometimes it’s easier to go out and pay $15 for a bowl of the slurp-worthy soup – but save your cash and whip up a better version at home.

Sous Vide Tempered Chocolate from #anovafoodnerd Eddie Rozenblat

Hello, my name is Eddie and I’m a chocolate addict…

One of my biggest weaknesses is chocolate, so this experiment was both exciting and fattening for me…

There are several traditional tempering methods which involve heat measurements, seeding or tabling using continuous movement.

I decided to temper chocolate while staying in my comfort zone (sous vide), and the results were pretty good.
