I also heard Atlanta, but Michigan would be good too.  At the rate it's growing, they are going to need them at places like the Meadowlands or better yet, Gillette Stadium  ;D

Homebrew Clubs / Re: BN Army wins club of the year.
« on: June 26, 2012, 11:54:34 AM »
I don't have a problem with BN in particular, but I would hope that BN can encourage members to join local clubs and be a part of that community.

As someone who listens to all the shows, this is done extensively, almost to the point of "ok we get it" and will be again on the next session I'm sure.

Does anyone know the total points yet?  If last year is any indication, then we are talking about the BN, DOZE, or Quaff being COTY.

Homebrew Clubs / Re: BN Army wins club of the year.

Did not hear the boos from the cheap seats, but the mood was definately subdued ( except for the jerk in the green BNA7 shirt screaming at the top of his lungs, i.e. me ).

I've always entered under the BN and was fortunate enough to contribute to the award this year.  Until recently, I could not affiliate myself with a local club due to their meeting times conflicting with my schedules.  I have now found a club semi-nearby that meets on a day and time that I can make.  I've only been going for about 7-8 months and we're still working on formalizing the club direction ( although we are an official AHA club ).  So next year, I will be entering this club for my competitions. 

But I will always be a member of the BN Army, and will continue to celebrate our successes.  And I can guarantee next year if a different club wins, the BN will stand and cheer louder than anyone ( except for the winning club of course )...because in the end, it's all about the beer!

Brew Strong BN Army and Congratulations!!

To the OP:

I love stuff like this.  I grew up in VT but would spend a week during the summer with my Aunt and Uncle in CT.  When I went to college, one of my roommates was from the same town in CT, and so is my wife ( met through the college roommate ).  It is amazing..."It's a Small World Afterall"  (there...you can all thank me for putting that song in your head for the next 24-36 hours  ;) )

We went test driving some cars ( nothing exciting, just family sedans - I'm not quite at my mid-life crisis yet ), then went to one of our favorite Italian restaurants for dinner.  Finished it off with some Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

So what are some of the places around the Hotel people can go for good beer, some food, and more good beer?

I know there's a Rock Bottom and The Tap House Grill nearby, but maybe some locals can give a couple other suggestions.

Thanks.

It's like rain on your wedding day

It's the good advice that you just didn't take

Now that's ironic!!

Is water readily available or do you just suggest drinking the water when you rinse your glass?

Just printed my boarding passes...can't wait for this day to be over.

All Things Food / Re: Smoking Chicken - Need Brine and Rub Recipes
« on: June 15, 2012, 07:59:38 AM »
I'm gonna smoke a chicken on the egg today.  It's tiny, only about 3 lbs.  I'm guessing 3 hours but I'm not really sure.  Anyone have a suggestion for how long for such a little bird?  Gonna brine for a couple hours first and then onto the grill.

Everything I read says 60 minutes per pound, but the brine also makes it cook faster.  I had my 7.5 lb bird on for about 6 hours, then another 30 minutes on the grill at 325 F and it came out great.
