Default Alton Brown, My renew interest

If it wasn't for a episode of Good eats, I might have never got back into homebrew. He is a couple of photos when I met him fall of 05'

For me if it wasn't for that episode I would have never gotten in to homebrewing.
Is Alton Brown as laid back as he seems to be?

OMG..I think he seems really anal retentive.....have you ever watched him try to pick out a piece of cookware? I doubt most of that is an act.....

That said, he's got a pretty awesome show because of it....

BTW, cool pics flip....

He doesn't seem anal retentive to me at all. He seems goofy and silly and fun.

What he IS teaching you is how YOU should be anal retentive about your cookware. He's got a kitchen supplied to him with the good stuff. Where as my kitchen is full of ish I found at wal-mart...

meh

He seemed cool. Cooked 4 or 5 dishes and joked the whole time. Didn't get to talk much with him though. I told him my wife was a big fan but she couldn't be there because she was at Disney with my son. He tried to call her on my cell, but she was in the Pirates of the Carb. ride and could not get reception. She wanted to shoot herself afterwards.

He reminds me of Bill Nye crossed with Julia Child.

Wow you got to meet Alton Brown. The proof is in the photos. He is awesome. He taught me how to fry chicken and how to make omelettes and fritattas. He also inspired me to learn to brew. Just watched him today and liked the flounder casserole he made.

Yeah, we don't miss an episode. He signed a cool pic for my wife too. She has it hanging in the kitchen next to the Kitchenaid stand mixer... too bad I can't use it for a grain mill.

He is the man. I record every episode during the week and watch them all on Saturday. The guy has taught me more about cooking than I'd ever thought I'd know. If I could just remember it all.

he prompted my wife to go buy an entire, untrimmed beef tenderloin. She's butchering it this weekend, so I'll be having a nice, thick filet.

and an IPA to go with it (compliments of BOSTONBREWIN')

That tenderloin episode made me drool.
Then I went to the store and priced them. All i could think after that was HOW IN THE HELL DID ALTON GET SIX OF THOSE!?!
