Dude, when you are stuck in MSP. make sure you hit the Rock Bottom Brewery, in the D concourse. Awesome pulled pork sandwich, and the IPA is great! I try and schedule all my flights through there with a good three hour lay over.

I'll give it a try.  I'm usually headed elsewhere from DTW at about 4 in the morning but I'll try to set something up for a longer layover at a better time of day.  Can't believe I'd want to spend MORE time in an airport though....

I tell ya man, I've been in a lot of airports lately, and MSP seems to be my favorite so far. True, Rock Bottom has a lot to do with it. But, it's clean, and comfortable. Easy to get around, with the trama. The only thing I really don't like about it, is no free WiFi. Gotta pay for the Boingo. I think that is ridiculious. Lots of airports out there with free wifi. Just a way to make a buck.  ::)

Just curious if anyone has done the fat washing with bacon for infusing liquor. I don't do the hard stuff hardly anymore and wondered how it worked out.

 Bacon, eggs and grits for supper.

 Not going to sacrifice my good bourbon on an experiment but I just happen to have some Crown that someone gave me. 2 cups are poured awaiting the grease. I figure 4 or 5 tablespoons should do it. Refridgerate over night. I need something to wash down my blood pressure medicine in the morning :D

I knew it didn't sound right. Might want to rethink your procedure. http://blenderbooze.blogspot.com/2011/02/fat-washing-process-for-bacon-infused.html

Hey, Maxieboy... on procedure, apparently there's different ways to do this. the link you posted talks about putting the bacon into the bourbon. the article I read in Whisky Mag talks about removing the bacon & putting in the grease. so now the tubercle needs to do a side by side on the two methods :D

Oh, OK, didn't realize you posted the procedure in the other thread. Yes, Tubercle is now commissioned to do the testing.  ;)

OK, tried the procedure described above by adding grease to the Crown.

 Put in the fridge overnight. Removed the grease on top. A lot of particulate in the liquid so I strained twice through coffee filters.

  Tasted like bacon grease, of all things, with alcohol added. Over whelmed the liquor. Left a very heavy film of grease on the tongue and roof of the mouth.

 One taste, poured the rest out.

 Not good.

Not surprising to me. The other way makes more sense, IMO.
