| Tech Board|| WatchESPN/Chromecast audio issues - Schwartz on 3/16/16 at 8:22 pm|
Seems to only happen with LSU baseball, but I haven't tested too much to confirm yet. Seems like sound starts low, and then slowly fades to nothing. Commercials are full volume without fail, though. It's really annoying. Any ideas?...

I've primarily been using my circulator for things like flat irons, skirt steak, flank, etc. as I've found lean cuts have worked a lot better. Any time I try something like a ribeye, I find that the intramuscular fat doesn't even start to render out, making for some really gnarly textures. Searing d...View Topic - Replies (7)

Went Saturday night and had an absolute blast.

We both agreed that if e...View Topic - Replies (1)
