Today was probably the busiest brew day I've ever done.

Started with brewing five gallons of a simcoe/el dorado IPA. During which time I also smoked a rack of ribs and a chicken. Baked a loaf if bread, made potato salad and a batch of BBQ sauce.

The end result.

In the top corner is my chocolate chili mild. Goes great with some BBQ.

There's no real point to this thread other than I felt like bragging.

I do the same thing when I get a chance. Those ribs look delicious.

I make everything homemade as much as possible. And the ribs were indeed delicious. My favorite part is that tomorrow morning I will make BBQ breakfast tacos out of them.

You've got your ribs, bread, BBQ sauce, potatoe salad, but where's the beer!! I thought your beer would be ready today! (I can't tell you how many people think beer is done the day you brew.)

After all that work, it seems like there's just something missing...

Oh, I know what it is - ME!

Definitely an ambitious brew day, man - but the results look outstanding. Since smoking is such a "set and forget" thing, I think you've inspired me to try this on a future brew day. It should take about as long to smoke a pork butt as it does to brew an all-grain batch!

As long as you're openly bragging, did you make that sausage too? :-)

Ha! Yeah I get that one too. But actually in the top left corner of the photo there's the bottom of a glass. It's got chocolate chili dark mild ale in it.

And no I did not make the sausage. I was planning on it but ran out of time. So I sent the wife out for it.
