Plates

I was watching some of Jacob's videos and I really love some of the plates that he uses when he's at his restaurant (such as the tartare plate). Is anyone (or if you don't mind sharing Jacob) aware of a place where one would obtain such plates?

I've seen some nice plates but the ones that were nice were running $40-50 a pop, which just seems absurd for a single plate. I have some pretty cool looking plates at home but I'm always looking to expand, especially since it provokes creative plating. 

I sifted around the forums and I didn't see this topic created but I do apologize if someone has asked this question.

Most of the non-round plates I use are actually purchased online through Crate and Barrel's CB2 website. They're not super sturdy or made for restaurant use, but at a few dollars a plate, I can afford to break some.

I hope to eventually get nicer plate ware for Stella, but these get the job done for the time being.

Those look very nice. Thanks for the link. Have you bought anything from them before? I noticed that they don't have any prices; I'm just curious what they charge.

I haven't ordered in years but the prices were reasonable at the time and they are now the largest supplier of dinnerware inn the USA.  Request a catalog and let us know.

Just requested a catalog. I'll try and remember to post the pricing when I receive it. Thanks again for the resource. With how large they are I'm surprised I've never heard of them before.

I just bought a flat of tri-tip from Costco, who sell both the full Tri-tip, and a tri-tip that has been cut into "New York Strip" style steaks, which is what I bought. I was thinking that i should use the time / temperature that you have listed for skirt steak (56c & 4-8 hours). Do you think this is a viable assumption? These tri-tip "steaks" have marbling that I've not seen on Tri-tip before, which makes me think "less temp". So I'm kinda confused about things temperature that i should use with these "tri-tip steaks". Any suggestions?

I was reading an article the other day about smoked meats and the smoke ring.

I have always followed the idea of 140 degrees F is about as far as smoke can be applied to meat.

The 140 degree may apply to pork but not red muscle meat like beef and venison.
