Sous vide is not just for high-end chefs! Consider this: You can smoke a whole brisket today, vacuum pack it and freeze it, pull it out of the freezer 6 months from now, drop the frozen brisket in the vacuum bag directly into a sous vide bath and 5 hours later have a perfect 160°F internal temp brisket! Change in plans: Mom and the kids will be 2 hours late for dinner. No worries! Leave the brisket in the sous vide and it will be exactly the same at 7:00pm as it was at 5:00pm. You can do this and more with this Anova Culinary sous vide setup including 16 liter cooking container.

Trust me, this is a great grill!
