Show#4 - Having Fun, Wish You Were Beer

I'm «trapped» in Florida (I've heard there are worse places) without a good beer or barbecue. If it wasn't for the ocean and the sun, things might be looking grim. I lament about the beers I find, and those I don't and discuss the Cuban style of cooking barbecue. It's a short one...

Sour Ale - a tart experience

I've recently had the pleasure of drinking a type of beer that I'd never had before. I had this beer in Wisconsin and again in San Diego, and have been unable to locate it anywhere regionally. The beer is a Flemish Old Brown, also known as a Sour Ale. Drinking this type of beer is like discovering beer all over again. (Before people start correcting me about what kind of beer it is, let me say that I arrived at this style definition after doing a LOT of research on what type it is - and I reserve the right to be wrong.) The best way to describe it is "pucker" beer. It has a tart taste, sour like a SweeTart sour. Excellent!

Why Homebrew?

Why brew your own beer? You can buy zillions of varieties of beers, there's no hassle to doing it, and if you buy a bad beer, you're only out the cost of a six-pack.

The Big Cook

I've got the pictures posted with detailed comments on the 4th of July cook. This was 4 days of prep, test cooks, and final cook to feed a crowd of 20-30 people. It was a lot of work but well worth it as the pictures show. Enjoy, and be sure to listen to the 4th of July podcast as well.

Note: Friday and Saturday are featured on Show # 2 where I cook the Beer Can Smoked Chicken and Riblets. You can listen to the mp3 here. The recipe for the Basic Rub and the Beer Can Chicken is found here in the article «Feeding the Masses».
