General Discussion / Re: Sous Vide Master thread

the one on the right is the brisket. It was ok, not as soft and juicy as strait smoked but still good. Would I do it again? Only if I can't smoke, like a Saturday night BBQ.

It was recommended to first smoke the meat for a few hours and then to sous vide it for several hours in order to be both smoky and juicy.

Why would you waste SPG on avois? You don't have UR?

Making an Avios ticket this week. need to refill UR.
Good point. Thank you. will restratgize. (Also they closed a bunch of local Office Depots recently. Will do more research for those and local Staples.)

Lol, I agree, I'm not sure why they hadn't brought any food with them. Doesn't change the fact that they should be owed some sort of compensation.

especially if they purchased a few international business class tickets.

Transfer to their SPG/Marriott and then to their BA account.

okay, but I don't even see the link to transfer to my own ba account. Can you show me the transfer link?

It's not this one, right? https://www.starwoodhotels.com/preferredguest/account/starpoints/redeem/moreOptions.html

Do any cruise lines allow kosher food from a caterer to be brought on?

It's sometimes an issue with the laws of the country where the cruise originates more than the actual cruise line company.

Enjoy Life makes 1 oz. bags.   I think that's a pretty good size.

Yes, the 1 oz size is a great daily-snack size.

We have been hearing great taste reviews in recent weeks, especially the soy-free 48%-cocoa (Kosher for Pesach), and the mini-chips.
Please let us know which stores have sold out, as we are in the process of re-stocking the chains such as Gourmet Glatt, Seasons, etc... Thank you.

Go izzys.

Izzy's is great, I knew that you'd like it there. Great quality taste and food. The smoked ribs and BBQ chicken are fantastic.

Was a good game to watch.

out for the first part and no TV at home, so no actual watching -- this is my screenshot text-view pic, attached. Big Pens fans here.

Has bison & bourbon upped their food game? Last time I was there I was quite disappointed

it depends on what you order. The main dishes, most side dishes, and the cocktails are great. Salads and other sides can use some improvements, in my opinion.

I tried to use this service. It was a spectacular display of incompetence at every step.

usually due to the local employees, not the actual CVS system...
