I said "no," but I guess that's because my wife isn't much of an authoritarian.  Neither of us are, really.  I realize the acronym is used in jest, but I guess it's not my brand of humor.

Man that looks awesome and also the brew...

If only I had one of your brisket sandwiches on the side.   ;)

It probably depends on your grocery store.  Here in the Twin Cities, there are plenty of chain grocery stores that have basic ancho and chipotle chile powders (the pure stuff).  My local Penzay's Spices offers a lot more.  But when I want to make a specialty chile powder, I usually just try to buy whole dried chiles (whichever one I want to make into a powder), toast them, and then grind them in my spice grinder.

I'd hit every MLB ballpark one season. Yeah, cheesy like the commercial, but it would be the trip of a lifetime!

It's not that cheesy. That would be up there on my list too.

I made a batch of my Mayan Red Fire Chili today.  Instead of using ground turkey, I added some leftover pulled, smoked turkey breast.  It has an awesome smoky spice.  Steam beer is a perfect campadre.

That's cool that you got to take a tour, Gail!  Yes, I believe Stranahan said they utilize one of Flying Dog's fermenters and then pipe it over to the distillery.

I'm not a huge bourbon drinker, but when I drink it, I like Maker's Mark.  On a side note, I saw a show on the History Channel last night profiling a recent micro-distillery start-up in Colorado that makes a product called Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey.  The micro-distillery was actually started by one of the co-founders of Flying Dog.  It sounds like they've made a decent splash in the world of high-end liquor.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to mix my second of the evening. Have to "celebrate" not getting another job...  :-\

I hear ya!  I'm in the same boat.  But I've moved past being discouraged -- now I'm just getting pissed.  It's 9:00 a.m. here...that's not too early for a martini, is it?

I've been using whole leaf U.S. Goldings for a few years now and don't notice much of a difference between them and the EK Goldings.  The EK variety may have a slightly more perfumy, flower-like nose, but the flavor is very similar, IME.

I'm really interested in the asian-inspired ribs.  They look awesome -- well, they all look awesome, but the asian-inspired ones look particularly good!

Well, there's what I'll call "chili" powder, and then there's "chile" powder.  The former is usually a blend of a few different types of dried chiles along with some other salts/spices.  It's used to add a general chili-like flavor to your food.  The latter is a powder comprised of pure chiles, usually a single variety (e.g., ancho or chipotle chile powders).  This kind of chile powder is used to add the flavor of a specific chile to your food.

Yes, it's enameled cast iron, so it's not as much maintenance as the bare stuff.  I use a raw cast iron skillet for toasting/roasting chiles (fresh and dried), garlic, onion, and for making homemade tortillas.

I love using cast iron.  I have a Le Creuset dutch oven and a braising pan -- awesome cookware.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Lagunitas Brown Shugga' (Sweet Release)

Ahh Lagunitis, I just love their beers. Love the Brown Shugga. Did a clone a while back that wasn't too bad at all. I just wish I could buy their beers locally.

We just started getting it locally about a year ago. I love their beer.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Lagunitas Brown Shugga' (Sweet Release)
« on: November 14, 2009, 09:37:14 PM »
Last night I had two pints of this stuff at one of my local watering holes.  I had already had two pints (Bells Two Hearted and Left Hand Milk Stout) prior to the Brown Shugga' and had no idea that it was a 9.5% beer!  After the second Lagunitas, I couldn't understand why I felt so tanked.  This morning I woke up with a bastard behind the eyes, checked the Lagunitas website, and it all made sense.  Sorry, I don't have tasting notes -- there's no way I would have remembered my impressions anyway.   :o
