Hey guys. Nice lookin kraut.

Slovakians put caraway in everything. When people try to put stuff in my kraut now I slap their hand and firmly say "NO!" Like in Conquest of the Planet of The Apes.

What else has been gone on around here? 

Ron did you ever finish the brutus or is it still a work in progress  :P

Where is the weaze, he still brewing?

I may brew a batch this weekend. Wait, no I am working Saturday, looks like I will just get a case of SNPA and suck it down before I get there.

We have had a six gallon fermentation bucket packed with kraut since october. It is coming along nicely.

Dont just get any cabbage, make sure it is large solid and sound late season cabbage. Late season has lots of natural sugars that make for a good fermentation.

We tried another method that people have told us where you just put it in a jar put the lid on and let it sit. Some even add water. I thought it was crazy because with the lid not much o2 will get in there and I thought maybe the jar could explode but it is working well.

Funny, yeah, been real busy the last, hmm. Year or so? Wow. Trying to turn the business around and get the shop fixed up after the disaster of 2008 and 9 and 10 and 11. Things are much better now that I have put much effort into a website, SEO and SMO and a few other letter acronym type things.
been doing some cooking as always but haven't had much time for ANYTHING else.

I want to get back into the cooking blog because that is all attached to the website and all. MAy be a fun for me way of updating my stuff.

Ill post some stuff soon.

I did make pumpkin pie yesterday with a Long Island Cheese pumpkin. WE went to the orchard to pick apples. Also made an apple crumble top apple pie with some wine sap apples thatr were on the tree only hours before.

I puts some walnuts in the food processor and chopped them a little to mix into the crumble top. very nice. 

For a good nutty crumble top.

Mix 1/2 cup butter, cup and a half flour, cup and one half brown sugar, one cup chopped walnuts or almonds etc. Pinch and mix with fingers until well blended but still kind of dry. Add flour as needed. Keep cold until you top the pie and keep it loose, dont pack it down when you top the pie just kind of sprinkle it on in layers until its even on top.

Stop worrying about what is legal and only worry about what is right.

Look into your heart. Look deep, the answer is there.

I have been warned that this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days. Come on guys, uis it all about brewing and BBQ. Trade it up once in a while.  ;D

Just thought I would stop in and see whats new here. Look like just the same old boring crap. Beer and BBQ.

Haven't brewed in a while but I am considering joining a brew club in my hood. These guys are after me hard to join. Jeez, its not like I can really brew or anything like that. Sure I am handsome and I have good taste in beer but I wonder what else they want me for? Im gong to my first brew session there on Tuesday.

I hope someone doesn't start putting pumpkin in it or some stupid s*** like that.

Im making pumpkin pies tomorrow. Maybe Ill post some pics.

Cool. What are you gonna play the zitar? Thats great. My axe is the tambourine. Maybe we can jam sometime.

Maybe I should dredge up the old ethnic cooking thread and post some Indian bread recipes. I got puris figured out too. and they stay puffed.

You have any atta flour?

Oh yeah. You will love the Indian bread stuff I learned. I learned a lot over the last year or so. After months of begging at our local Indian Restaurant they finally agreed and took me in the back to show me how to make their parantha bread. Ill bet it was mostly to shut me the F up.

Ill be doing the first Indian food week on the blog soon. Italian now, then some holiday pie stuff then Indian food.

Wait till you see the tandoor oven Im working on. Its sitting now though.

Yeah lets plan on something. I have a lot of people already asking me to do a homebrewing thing. I figure I can show a stove top extract method one day (what I usually do) then show how the big dogs do it by interviewing you and showing the Brutus 10. I figure Ill do a whole beverage thing that week.

Thang long is gonna let me come in and do an interview and take lots of pictures there too. Im gonna save that for Vietnamese cooking week.  :)

Home with an nasty cold today so Im drafting.

If anyone has any requests just let me know.

Sorry for the subject change. Now back to BBQ  :D

Thanks guys,. Im gonna add  updates daily or at least several times a week. I think there is a way to add your email address so that you get update notifications in your email. Its at the bottom of the page.

Im drafting now for a week of Indian cooking. Most importantly Im gonna post tutorials there on how to make Indian breads such as parantha,chappity and even the elusive puri, Should be interesting. Fun stuff.

Hey guys, I started a cooking blog/journal if anyone is interested. Im gonna (over time) be divulging all of my tried and true recipes. A lot of it will be week long themes i.e. Indian, Italian, Vietnamese, BBQ ETC ETC. Hoping to talk Ron into an interview and photos for the homebrewing theme.  ;)

Not much there yet but it will grow. Some of you may have already seen some of the stuff but I am gonna post tutorials with step by step photos and even videos eventually. Ive been practicing in the mirror.  ;D

I would love to see some input from you guys. Great cooks here.

Sad story but a bud of mine hit a baby deer. He brought it home and roasted it whole. OMG was it frickin good. 

Not sure if it was legal or not.

I was at my brothers for TG. It was really good they did a Jerk turkey, a grilled Turkey and a regular oven turkey. All good but I am a less is more guy when it comes to turkey. I prefer an oven roasted turkey over any other way. I wouldn't dare mention that over at the Brethren.  ;)

One thing that was funny is everyone was saying "butterflied" instead of spatchcock. They are very conservative on that side of the river. I call it the old country. They just call it butterflied to avoid saying cock. Thats just how repressed they are.
