Temperature and time?

Salt before vacuum, or after cooking?

I like my steak medium rare, but I'm cooking for others who prefer it a little more dine. What's the highest temperature I can get away with without losing too much juices?
Go for 135 - 140 for 1-2 hours for medium, 130 for medium rare.

I prefer to dry brine it, which means giving it a good amount of salt anywhere from 1 hour - 24 hours before you actually sous vide it and letting it sit in the fridge.

The trimmed meat is definitely used but I get more than enough fat trimmings from the packer briskets.
Ha, if you have Wagyu, than this stuff is probably like sirloin tip for you.

Steaks look decently marbled, but value wise it's really YMMV depending on size of fat cap, other non edibles, and non steak-ables portion.

Not sure it was necessarily worth getting the packer vs buying the smaller packs for similar price/weight.
Too bad I missed this! :( Thanks for the great feedback.

I've been personally buying the full striploin for a quite a few years now. I prefer it for a few reasons:

I get to portion, vacuum pack and freeze based on my family's needs.
It gives me an excuse to use my knives
I can cut to my desired thickness
And possibly the most important -The individual steaks (3 pack) Costco sells at least at my local at least, are mechanically tenderized. Sous vide this may not be as big of a deal, but I always BBQ my striploin.

never considered buying the full striploin, what knives do you use?

The bigger (longer) knife the better, or else you may need a couple passes especially if it's not sharp.

I'll use a Victorinox 12" slicer and then Yoshimi Kato Gyuto for trimming etc.
