The Pub / Bacon.....again....
« on: March 23, 2011, 03:59:27 PM »
 By now you all know my sick fascination with bacon. For a while now I've had the idea to make pig candy from 1Verticle. Well, Monday, I was doing some pork, for pulled pork on the grill. My rub has a very heavy brown sugar base, along with some cyane, cumin, salt, pepper, a few red pepper flakes for good measure, and maybe some other assorted goodies.
 When putting the pork on the grill, I layed strips of bacon over the top, so the fat could run over, and seep into the pork. By the time it was down, the brown sugar rub had carmelized, and stuck to the now perfectly cooked bacon. Gentlemen, I tell you in all honesty, it was THE BEST bacon of my life!!!
  Having the guys over for poker night on Friday. I'm making a bacon bomb, and you can bet pig candy is on the menu for dessert. Maybe even the maple bacon shakes that was also just pm'ed to me. I can imagine the straight brown sugar would be good on the bacon, but the addition of the cyane, and cumin really took it to the next level. you guys HAVE to try this!

General Homebrew Discussion / Should I be upset?
« on: March 14, 2011, 11:50:33 AM »
  Went to the local brewery Saturday night to hear a band, who was awesome BTW. The Wailing O'Sheas. And have a few pints. They have a very nice IPA there, called Googg. Not the best I've had, but very drinkable, and with a couple tweaks, something I would not mind having on tap.
  I asked the the brewess for the recipe, and she told me to go scratch! I've asked several brewers, home and pro for recipes, and they were more than happy to share them. Even Sierra Neveda, regarding their ESB. They were very willing to help me. Even had a thread about it hear a year or so ago. It was my understanding that it is common courtsey among brewers to share recipes. Really, you can give 10 brewers one recipe, and end up with 10 different beers. This move on her part really kind of turned me off to the brewery. Her beer is good. Not great, but good. Price is good to, at 2-4$ a pint depending on what it is. And she always has good entertainment. Food is wonderful too, and priced well. Not saying I am going to boycot her, but it just left me kind of sour to her as a person, and brewer. I thought brewers were cooler than that. MAybe she did not get the memo?

The Pub / new toy
« on: March 10, 2011, 10:06:53 PM »
 Got the green light from Holly to use some of our tax return to get one of these new Droid Xoom's. This thing is sweet! It's actually not a real Xoom, it's a Flytouch. Droid based. Has 2 USB ports, and two micro SD ports. It has wifi, 3 3G, and an ethernet port. Got a built in cam, and mic, also an HDMI out port. This thing is amazing! Going to be great for all the flying I do now. My first app download was angry birds. That is pretty much the only one I think I will ever need.
  I also got it with the optional leather case, with built in mini keyboard. Now, when is pro-mash going to get with the times, and come out with a droid app?
  Got most all my music on here now, and a ton of e-books. I should be able to enterrain myself for months now! ;D

All Things Food / Salsa anyone?
« on: March 04, 2011, 09:11:05 PM »
  About a year ago, i would turn my nose up at hot, spicy foods. now, I can't get enough. I've been playing with salsa lately. Tonights creation was pretty good. About 2# of plum tomatos diced, with about three of them ran through the blender with a habenaro, and  a few jalapinos. Toss in some kosher salt, garlic powder, fresh cilantro, (i have it growing in a pot on the kitchen table) and lime juice, and a diced red onion. Pretty good stuff. Nice heat, but not much that you cannot enjoy it. Who else makes it, and how do you do yours?

And I had to let everyone know. I just love me a good shower beer. Been a while since I had one. Was freezing the twins off, so I got in a really hot shower, with a Dechutes Inversion IPA, and all was good after.  ;D

All Things Food / Chicken feet
« on: February 26, 2011, 01:27:14 AM »
  Call me crazy, but I got a hankerin' for some. Today, I hit 4 grocery stores, and 2 butchers. Not one chicken foot. One of the butchers did say they could get me a 40# case. I think that is excessive.  ;D 
   On the chance I do get ahold of some foul feet, the recipe I got called for boiling them in a mixture of soy sauce, waster, garlic, and fresh mint. I know it's a long shot, but any one have any good chicken feet recipes? Anyone? Cappo?

The Pub / I caught you a deliciuos bass.
« on: February 21, 2011, 08:20:15 PM »
Well, Steel head, actually. Went on a 4 day man trip to Orifino, Idaho steel head fishing, with three buddies. It was absolutly amazing! I have never seen country that pretty in all my life. The place is infested with bald eagles. As I was fishing, I counted no less than 8 one morning, all dive bombing the river, catching their breakfast. It's really strange the places you find yourself in life. If you would have told me 15 years ago, I would be fishing for steelhead, on a river in BF Idaho, with three of the best dudes I've ever had the pleasure of meeting, in the most beautiful country in the united States, I would have said you are smoking crack. This weekend, it happened. You all know how pissed I was to have to move here, but honestly, now I'm mad I didn;t do it years ago. This is the best thing to happen to my life, since the day I married Holly. With our living situation now, we have it figgured for me to go to Ohio every six weeks to work in sheet metal, and HVAC for two weeks. In that time, I'll make enough $ to last us till the next trip. When I'm home for the six, I got nothing to do but kick back, and love life. Almost like i'm retired early!  We're never going to be rich, but the bills are paid, and neither of us has ever been so happy, and stress / worry free. I LOVE MY LIFE!!

  This was my first Steelhead. He was pushing 20#. Took me a good 10 mins to land him, as the rod / reel set up I was using sucked big time! A new one is in order for next trip.

  Games have been sold out for years. But, man is it good to know people in the right places! I got to a game last season, for the time in the old arena, The Igloo. Now, I get to see a game for the first season of the new arena. How fortunate am I?! Just what I need to, after a rough week.  :D
