[Modernist Cuisine] Beef Brisket (6•88)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was wondering if you could answer a question. In your section on American BBQ in regards to brisket it says to smoke it for 7 hours and then sous vide for 72. I was wondering if it is possible to smoke 3 or 4 briskets and then vacuum seal and freeze 2 of them, remove at a later date and sous vide then. What kind of negative impact would that have on the meat. Thanks.

I have tried the brisket recipe a few times now. But, I want to reverse the order of things. I have the dry rubbed brisket in my sous vide supreme at 140f and then I am going to smoke it (as best one can on a gas grill) rather than smoke first.

Thoughts, comments or recommendations? Taking it out and hitting the grill/smoker on Monday for Memorial Day guests. Thanks...

Ok. Made Kansas city sauce per instructions. After 20min, sauce reduced to 350g not 250g. Going to smoke for a few hours tomorrow and mop with sauce to keep moist. Any last comments?

Be carefull if you put the dry rub before a long sous vide cooking you'll be curing the meat with it. This will give you a firmer less pleasant texture. Try putting the dry rub between the sous vide and the smoke.

Good luck

I have a vac master chamber sealer. How do you pull a hot piece of meat off the smoker and use a chamber sealer to prepare the meat for sous vide if it is that hot? I don't see any steps in the book that call for cooling the meat before sealing it. The last time I put something that hot and moist into the sealer it boiled and vapor filled the chamber.

You can probably put only a low vacuum to seal the mat. (You also have the ZipLoc option if you want to go low tech) But the easiest way is to let the meat cool down. It won't change anything for a 72 hours cooking time.

Vacume packing and hot even warm ingredients do not get along just let the meat cool then seal works great. Love doing brisket this way easier than watching it in a smoker.

      GE is entering the SV field in an innovative way. They are doing a crowdfunding approach through one of their Innovation technology centers. The device itself is also innovative in that it uses a Inductive cooktop for the heating element with a wireless temperature sensor. It's also unique in that it does not include any type of water circulation.
       
      Here's a link to the crowdfunding site: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/paragon-induction-cooktop/
       
      What does everybody think about this entry into the field? If nothing else it certainly shows that SV has gotten the attention of major appliance makers. A few weeks ago GE also announced that one of their new lines of stoves will have the same type of temperature control as this device uses so you can do SV on your stovetop.

      I made the Creme Anglaise recipe from Myhrvold Modernist Cuisine - it did look curdled and lumpy coming out of the zip lock bag as described in the recipe.
       
      I used my stick blender to smooth it out as instructed, but I think I blended it for too long, and it went from lumpy to smooth to watery. Did I make a fatal mistake of over blending the custard?
       
      The recipe does not say how to blend or when to stop.
       
      Hoping one of the gurus can give me guidance before I try this again.
       
      Many Thanks

      Has anyone used Valrhona Absolut Crystal neutral glaze particularly to thicken a coulis or to glaze a tart?  If so, how did you like it and is there another glaze you think worked as well but is less expensive or can be purchased in smaller quantities?

      Hello.
      I would like to buy some pectinex ultra sp-l.
      However I am worried about the temperature during the shipping time.
      I read that the storage temperature should be between 2 and 8 C. It works best from 15 to 50 C, and if it stays a lot of time in 25 C, it will gradually be deactivated.
       
      It needs a week to come here (Greece), then will it affect its abilities?
       
      Do you know if I can find a document somewhere that explains the gradual loss of power as a function of time and temperature?
      Did you have any experience with pectinex not working well due to bad storage?
       
      Thanks.
