  1. I'm looking forward to that episode.
  2. This is a pretty entertaining Christmas album: https://www.discogs.com/Justin-Wilson-Christmas-Cajun-Style/release/2858996
  3. TV Guide listings: 8/25 10PM EST : Chicken Parm 10:30: Ancient grains (Amaranth, Chia, Quinoa) 9/1 10 PM EST: Sauces (sequel to 'Hittin' the Sauce') 10:30: Immersion Circulators Edit: Food Network
  4. He did an 'Ask Me Anything' on Reddit today and some upcoming show topics include immersion circulators, steak tartare, and wild sourdough.
  5. The first episode of Season 15 is streaming on the Food Network app prior to its airdate of 8/25. It's about Chicken Parm and it's in the classic GE Format. I have seriously missed this show.

  6. I am genuinely surprised there aren't more appliances like this - Induction with temperature feedback. There's the Control Freak, the Cuisinart Tasty One, Hestan Cue, and Paragon (I might have forgotten some). Maybe it's too niche a market?
  7. Yup, I have a backup. I got an early backer deal on indie gogo back in '16 I think for the burner/probe @ 199. A year later they emailed backers with an opportunity to buy the upgraded mat/probe/disconnectable BT unit for $99, jumped on that, sold v1 probe on ebay. So when I saw the whole kit-and-caboodle for $99, you bet I jumped.
  8. This was another major factor in my liking this device. This is why I don't own a Joule. I cannot always depend on an app coder/manufacturer to keep the software updated throughout the life of the product. I like devices that have physical controls, even if the controls are just a backup.
  9. No but I did do buffalo wings via this recipe: https://www.seriouseats.com/2019/04/how-to-make-sous-vide-chicken-wings.html They called for 400F oil but I just set the probe to the 375 max. Was pretty happy with the recovery time.
  10. That is a bit of a bummer for frying purposes. I do enjoy the feedback aspect of it though as opposed to a standard induction burner. Yeah it's kind of a ghost town over at FirstBuild for the Paragon. I think the Six Pack was an option to order 6 of them.
  11. Not home at the moment but I recall both the probe and mat topping off at 375F. But if you don't use them you can go higher. A couple winters ago I had it running for hours boiling down maple sap for syrup in the carport.
  12. Hope you like it! I'm a fan. Also, hope things look up.
  13. His description of this book is definitely worth a listen. It was on my to-do to seek it out. Thanks for saving me the trouble!
  14. So FirstBuild wound up not shipping to you? That's a bummer. R C Willey might ship, and the price will be nicer if it goes back on sale.
