Janis, if you make it, I'll try it! BTW, I pretty much feel the same way about smoked beers that I do about spruce beers! In spite of my BVIP recipe, I really prefer beer flavored beer.
I agree. I want the barbeque I'm eating with the beer delivering the smoky flavor, not the beer itself.
+1 While I like to try a smoked beer once in a while, I'm not a huge fan. I once ordered a Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier MÃrzen before my meal at the local brewpub. Every part of my meal tasted like it was filtered through a campfire - even the salad!
