Here's a deep dive into reverse searing. We've learned a few things since we shot this. First of all, the salt should go down before the oil so it lands on wet meat so it can dissolve. It won't dissolve and penetrate as well if the oil goes on first. And second, if I had moved mine over to the hot side at about 115°F instead of 120°F, the crust would have been darker.
