Happy New Year to everyone! I am looking forward to some exciting things for 2019, but first I would like to do a quick recap of what we accomplished in 2018. If you don't know, we started developing "Fire & Water Cooking" in May 2018 as a way to help others learn how to use sous vide and mix it in with barbecue, smoking, and grilling. I had spent a few months really studying sous vide and found that it worked perfect incorporating it into my barbecue and other cooking I have been doing for over 40 years. The method of "Sous Vide" seems complicated at first, but it is really just another cooking method when you boil it down. Once you get the basic principles down, it is very easy to explore and expand its use! Sous Vide is not magic, but it does allow you to do some things not possible any other way. So I made Fire & Water Cooking to help people understand and discover how they can make some really awesome food and have fun doing it! Thank you for joining us in this adventure!
Here are some great pictures from 2018!
