a sous vide rig will maintain that specific temperature for as long as you want.

a slow cooker will turn off or keep warm after the meat hits the right temp. it wont maintain that desired temperature.

Once the water goes below set temp it turns on again to keep it at set temp.
Please explain to me ANY difference in doing it this way than spending 5x as much on a sous vide machine.
best example i can think of is like a 63 deg egg yolk

if you set your crockpot at 63 degrees, the machine will have it go up to 63 deg, then "turn off" because it has reached temp, and when it "turns off" the temp will go down before it turns on again to reach up to 63

in the sv machine , it consistently circulates water and makes sure its at 63 deg at ALL times

Buddy of mine just finished hacking an old crock pot to work for sous vide. Says it works great and was dead simple to do.
