DIY Sous Vide

Thanks to Jeff Potter of Cooking For Geeks, I’m building my own DIY Sous Vide rig with a thermostatic controller and an off the shelf cheap slow cooker.

Mains wiring is scary as heck though.

Work in progress.  I have to get a couple more parts to make sure it’s safe before I’ll plug it in, but most of the guts are there.  Needless to say I’ll be doing a lot of voltage checking before I touch this thing.

I think first up will be some sous vide salmon, then hit it hot and fast in a cast iron skillet for color and Maillard reactions on the outside.  Should be one heck of a good time.  More to come.
