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, 02:37:14 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

I'll add that my wife had moonshine out of a ball jar with ZZ Top.  Not beer, but a pretty good story nonetheless.   ;D

I have an All-Clad non-stick omelette pan that's been working great for several years.

Hmm..."schlong" kept popping up (pun intended   ;D) in my random beer names almost every other time.  Strange.
