Sous-Vide setup from the Instagram Live video yesterday

Yesterday I did an Instagram Live video where I was prepping 20lbs of pork spare ribs that I’m going to have for the Utah Keto Meat-up this weekend. Near the end of the broadcast, my phone went wonky so the first 4/5 of the video did not get posted to my Instagram Story, nor to the KetoChow Facebook page. It was sad =(Anyhow, here’s the setup:

  • Bunch of ribs. Got them from Costco
  • Some seasoning, I was using “montreal steak” seasoning I got from Sams-Club in a giant shaker – doesn’t have any sugar and it has a lot of salt.
  • Bunch of gallon zip-loc bags. You can use a vacuum sealer but this works just fine too.
  • A Cooler – allows you to exceed the manufacturer’s recommendations for maximum volume of water. Means you can cook more meat at the same time and it is easier on the sous-vide too. It’ll need a 2 3/8 inch hole cut into the lid.
  • an Ikea rack
  • a Sous-vide – I’m using the old Bluetooth Anova because it works fine, the Monoprice one is a good choice too
  • This Ikea pot lid organizer works great to keep your stuff sorted.

I cut each slab of ribs in half and seasoned them, put them into the ziploc bags and then pushed them under water to get (most of) the air out), then those all went into the cooler of hot water where they are hanging out for 3 days. It’s very much like how I made Sous-Video Brisket.

Flavor of the Week June 4-June 10: 10% off sale on Salted Caramel 2.1 week packs

For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Salted Caramel 2.1. Check out the flavor reviews of 2.1 Salted Caramel! Don’t forget that we now offer free ground shipping to the contiguous 48 United States for orders over $200.

Speaking of reviews, you should check out our store reviews on Google, and the reviews of Keto Chow. Here’s a “taste”:

I received a prompt text message that my order was ready for pickup. Had no issues picking it up. The ketochow seems to really help supress my hunger and prevent headaches and fatigue.

(If you’re near our warehouse in South Jordan, Utah – local pickup is one of the available shipping options). Here’s another review, it should be noted that I publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones I remove are spam posts from people wanting you to buy pills to “enhance performance” and such:

I have fallen in love with KetoChow. Honestly, the best tasting and easy to implement meal supplement/protien shake. Not only do Chris and his team ensure that’s its tastey, they also pack it with vitamins and the minerals that Ketoers need. Also I love the customer service they provide, on the web and on Reddit, its pretty awesome to easily ask questions or get feedback from Chris or his team.

Free US Ground Shipping for orders over $200, Subscriptions now available

We finally have everything set up and ready so we can offer free UPS ground shipping for orders over $200 within the contiguous 48 United States (sorry Hawaii and Alaska 😢 – UPS calls it “ground” shipping but it’s not and they charge way too much for it). Getting the discount is easy: just add $200 worth of product to your shopping cart and select the Free Ground Shipping option. May I make a suggestion though: If you order 4 or more of the 21 meal “week” bags, you’ll get a 5% bulk discount, plus free shipping (again – if you live in the 48 contiguous United States). That’s a Win-Win! =)

We have boxes that’ll handle up to 8 of the large 21 meal packages of Keto Chow at a time, and if you go really nuts and order more than 8, we’ll just split up the order. One thing to note is that this is shipping via UPS Ground, meaning that it’s going to take longer to arrive compared to US Priority Mail – especially for those on the east coast. Here’s the actual transit time map:

Getting the ground shipping set up was the final element holding back rolling out subscriptions too. So let’s do it! We’ve actually had the Subscriptions Page in the store for a few weeks but it had a bunch of warnings not to use it just yet. Starting now you can go right ahead and order a subscription to be shipped to you every month. It should be noted that subscriptions live in an alternate universe where any other sales or discounts don’t exist. You’ll get the same flavor(s) for the same price(s) each time unless you cancel the subscription and make a new one. Yeah, that’s a pain but I haven’t found a way around it yet. PLEASE NOTE: you can’t use Amazon Pay or Visa Checkout with subscriptions. If you are creating a subscription and check out using Amazon Pay or Visa Checkout, it will not create a recurring subscription like it’s supposed to. You’ve been warned! =) Rather it’ll create the subscription and charge your payment method for the first month, but next month you’ll get an email asking you to put in a different payment method before the subscription renews.

Here’s where it gets fun:

  • Subscriptions get 5% off
  • You also can get 5% off if you order 4 or more
  • You also can get free ground shipping since those 4+ will put you into that bucket too!

Hey, it’s pretty much the best way to order Keto Chow!
