I know nothing about this, so I'm just wondering, and I guessing I'm wrong, that you have to use a vac system.
Perhaps it just works better with the vac. ???

Quick tender???

So what exactly is Quick Tender?
Many years ago I used it a few times, but then started to find out about cure #1 & #2.
So I've always used the cures.
So what is quick tender, as apposed to the two cures?

Ok well now I guess I know what a kidney blade does :shock:
I always wondered, and now I'm guessing you use it to just "chop" meat for a lack of better word?

Funny I've been hearing more and more about this sous-verd, I unstand it and how it works, but never though about applying it to some of the things we do in here.
May have to look into this more.

Laftpig, how would you use the strips? Do you take a tiny core sample or what? I've never done PH testing so I know nothing about doing it. But would a tester like this work? https://www.amazon.com/Luster-Leaf-2956-Rapitest-Digital/dp/B0725SQNGM/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1515274072&sr=8-7&keywords=ph+m...
