Has anyone seen the Basic Brewing DVDs? I'm thinking of getting the intro to extract and intro to all-grain for my wife, because it might be fun to watch them together and learn something. Thoughts?

Alton's method would be completely authentic for European döner kebab, if that's what he was trying to make.
ATK liked a relatively cheap chef's knife, around $30. A Victorinox I think. Bouef.
I also had the best lasagna in Copenhagen. It looked and was served exactly like the lasagna in Northern Italy- which was pretty darn good. Better than American casserole style.
I barbecue a lot for my inlaws in France but their grills are pretty basic. The big ones are water heaters cut in half. You can put a lot of chicken on one but temp control is pretty much out of the question. One BIL has a Weber type grill that he paid around $250 for but it's pretty small and not very well designed.
Last year I spatchcocked a turkey and smoked it, quite nice.
My daughter baked at Whole Foods and then at an upscale restaurant in Albuquerque for a while. She makes an incredible pizza dough and I make a pretty good sauce with herbs from the garden Our 2 favorite pizzas are spicy shrimp with red bell peppers and onion, and garlic chicken with green chiles.
I once ordered a pizza in my wife's town in France. It had some weird combo of ingredients like artichokes and asparagus with ham and eggs. When the waiter brought it to me there wasn't any visible egg, but then he cracked a freakin raw egg right in the middle of the pie. It sizzled until it was at least sunny side up but it pretty much ruined an already unappetizing pizza.
You might try swapping the kegs to see if it has anything to do with the beer or the keg you are using.
I have a set of Chicago Cutlery knives that I want to replace with some really good knives.
I've been doing a little research and have found that alot of chefs like the Japanese stainless knives.
Like this Global. Pricey though.
I have one of these...
I have yet to use it in the kitchen, though.
Check out the Brewers Association Draught Quality Manual to help you balance your system and get the right pour. You can download the manual for free. It's pretty comprehensive.
