    It depends on your uses. I've been looking at Sammic, but have switched to Minipack because I favor a larger chamber. I want to make Pastrami, so the MVS-45XP is my current favorite. More room than the Sammic SV310S, Less $$, & Stronger Busch pump.
  3. A less expensive alternate to the BBQ weight is to vacuum seal some glass cubes. I triple bagged mine and they make a very effective weight in the SVS. You can find bags of glass cubes at craft stores.
  4. Indeed and a slice on my ham sammich was good too.
  5. Thanks for this Chris. I finally made the sauce tonight and tomorrow night is Mac & Cheese night. I used Woodchuck Cider with Fontina and a smoked Gouda. There are 2 pucks in the freezer with 2 ounces for snacking. My wife licked the spoon, pan and was eyeing the bit left over for snacking. Very tasty.
  6. Chris is the 40° F curing chamber a refrigerator? If not, what is it? Thx
  7. I've preordered MCAH and after working my way midpoint thru the Cooking With thread ordered MC last night. I'd like to know if MC or MCAH include calorie counts?
