Cooked a tri-tip in my sous vide setup today. Six hours at 133F and then about 5-6 minutes a side on the BBQ at medium. This is my fourth at home with my own setup but first in my new smaller tub. The meat was about as tender as a filet which is huge since tri-tip is almost always tough.

Looks great! How involved was the start up for you going into sous vide? A lot of research and $?

Its about $250 or so for the cooker, tub, and top for the tub.

That is the cooker I have. I got my first for about $179 and then a second for about $125 on Prime Day.

What is cool is I can control it from my phone. A couple times now I have been at work and received a notification that the water is up to temp. My mom figured out how to use it and raids my stash of vacuum sealed tri-tips.

You can do it in a cooler without any money spent.....just have a thermometer to check the water temp.

OP, what kind of bags did you use? Just regular Ziploc ones?

I got the vacuum sealer from Costco and use their brand bags. I have heard of people using Ziploc bags and trying to get as much air out as possible. I like toys though so I had to buy the whole setup.
