Reverse Sear vs Sous Vide and New Years
Weekly Blog Post - Reverse Sear vs Sous Vide and New Years
Find out what's going on at Walton's and Meatgistics this week. We will have a loose schedule for soon to be released videos, what we are working on long-term and maybe a few quick tips and tricks that are on our mind!
What Videos are being released soon?
Reverse Sear vs Sous Vide - We grabbed a few Wagyu Steaks and cooked one using our Sous Vide Circulator and the other one we did a reverse sear on, which is where you cook the steak in an oven or grill at low temperature first and then sear it at the end. Both methods gave us an steak that was perfectly medium-rare throughout so it comes down to a what you like better!
New Years Sale Video - This is where we announce our New Years Sales (perfect time to use those gift cards) and at the end we show you a collection of our bloopers throughout the year. Some are funny, most of them are just sad though! It is a lot of me just messing up words as I try to talk!
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
Meatgistics University 20(s) are being planned and shot right now. We already have a few shot and a few published and we are shooting a few more right now! This will be the main focus of the new year for us!
What’s on our Mind?
The Livestream was a great time yesterday, we really enjoy those and we will be doing more of them, probably a monthly thing at this point. Anyone who is looking for a way to get their hands on some of that hot honey that we were eating yesterday you can check them out here https://www.facebook.com/maplestreethoney

@gerygaub Had been thinking about smoking an entire Ribeye for a while and he finally went ahead and did it! For anyone not familiar with him he is doing all of this without sight, so next time you think you have things rough just remember there are people refusing to let anything stop them from doing what they love!

The Walton’s 8.7 and 12 inch Slicers are here! We played around with them a little on our Livestream yesterday and we had a lot of fun with them! They both did a good job on meat and cheeses and the 12 inch was cutting bologna and the cheese paper thin!
Last night I went through the cleaning procedure and I couldn’t be happier with the ease of the process. Remove grates, scrape the heat shield with a metal spatula and vacuum the ashes and debris underneath. It only took a few minutes and there was an astonishingly small amount of ash. After two weeks of almost daily grilling and going through 20 lbs or more of pellets the total accumulation was around one cup of ash. The pellets burn so efficiently that there is little to no residual.
@Jonathon I have used them many times and I’ve always noticed a distinct cedar character although that depends on the temps you are cooking at. To get the most of it I will soak in water for a bit and cook over pretty high temps…the wood should scorch and smolder a little bit. I’ve had a few catch on fire. lol.
When it came to cooking on the Pit Boss I wanted as low and slow as I could get away with. Due to the the size of the fish I figured the cedar would shield against any hot spots I might have and slow down the cooking process as much as possible. I doubt there was much if any of the cedar that was picked up by the salmon although I didn’t eat much of the side that was resting on the plank. The pellets I was using were apple.
@Joe-Hell Do you often cook on planks? I have tried it a time or two and never noticed a difference. Is it only supposed to be used for heat shielding?
