This week, Leysath shares a new gadget of the market, the sous vide method of cooking, which is sealing fish or game in a plastic bag and submerging it in a water bath. “Sous vide cooking is different than simply grilling a steak on a hot grill. It precisely controls the internal temperature of the meat. The only downside is that you just don’t get the ‘crust’ you get when grilling, but there’s an easy fix for that, explained Leysath.

Also in this episode, Susie Jimenez shares her Asian/Latin fusion elk dumplings, Buddy T has bacon-wrapped fish balls, Melissa Bachman shares her tip for bowhunting in the wind and Dan Dovel of Work Sharp Knives has advice on salvaging broken knives.
