Instead of bringing a traditional 981.2 refresh, the Boxster (and Cayman) are being reintroduced as new models with turbocharged 4 cylinder engines. Rated at 300hp in the base (nearly as much as the outgoing S!) and 350 hp in the S version, the Boxster will now take the place of the higher spec car, with the Cayman coupe being cheaper. (The outgoing 981 Cayman was priced considerably above the Boxster.) This is probably going to drive used 981.1s down in price, especially the Cayman.
I'll share a few of my easy Sous Vide recipes. These are typically not a huge time investment and almost impossible to goof up.
I'm not normally a fan of New York Steak. It's one of those inbetween cuts that is not quite as tender as a Filet but not quite as favorful and juicy as a good ribeye. But, cooked Sous Vide, they come out really nice. You get the extreme fork tender melt in your mouth goodness of a filet with the extra fat breaking down into a ton of flavor like a good ribeye, almost like the best of both worlds.
I am an avid smoker - I had a Bradley electric smoker for several years, experimented with a Weber Bullet and picked up a Traeger in 2014. In the approximately 18 months I have owned it, I have probably smoked somewhere around 125 lbs worth of smoking pellets and at least 2-3 meals a week. I can't get of the deep smokey flavor and slightly charred outside of meats that tenderize themselves in a cloud of dense burnt wood. Mmmmm, making myself hungry. There are purists who decry electric smokers, but the brainlessness of them really appeals to me and my family's hectic schedule.
But, even with the fire and forge nature of the ,Traeger it is not completely maintenance or baby sitting free. It some times flames out and it is not particularly intelligent about getting itself restated. While it is fairl accurate, temperatures do vary, especially when it is cold outside, and I end up smelling like a campfire. Worst of all, it's cold outside and I'm a wuss for standing outside when I can be inside where it is nice and warm and there are video games.
Sometimes, you just need a little bit more brainless cooking or a bit more accuracy.
