MSSQL - Select data from now to yesterday at a specific hour

I have a table (SQLJobStatus) with a column (Job_Date) that has date/time records.  (2014-02-07 23:30:00.000)

I am trying to get all records from last night at 11:30pm  (23:30:00) until now.

select * from SQLJobStatus where ((Job_Date >= (DATEADD(d,-1,GETDATE()))) and ((convert(varchar, job_date, 108) >= '23:30:00')))

I tried this query however, I only get yesterday jobs from 23:30.  The >= on selecting the date is only giving me yesterday.  I see that is caused by the time portion being selected as > 23:30 which would only select the jobs on the next date that were greater than this.

Not sure how to write the correct syntax.

Would appreciate help writing a clean query to give me all records as needed.

Thanks

Something like this perhaps:

SELECT  *
FROM    SQLJobStatus
WHERE   Job_Date >= DATEADD(minute, 1410, DATEADD(DAY, -1, DATEDIFF(DAY, 0, GETDATE())))

This might be a tad clearer:
SELECT  *
FROM    SQLJobStatus
WHERE   Job_Date >= DATEADD(minute, 1410, DATEDIFF(day, 1, GETDATE()))

Thanks...  For some reason I couldn't wrap by head around this... I kept running into a roadblock.  Looks like I need to research datedff.

Now any time I run my program it will give me all of the jobs from last night instead of the last 6 hours.

Thanks again....
