I saw Alton cook a rib roast last night with a flower pot. I've seen him use other items for cooking before too but for some reason seeing him use a flower pot like that really got me.

If I were a professional chef, he'd be the only person who would intimidate me.

bah, I don't have 3 days to prepare. Might have to try it with the other half I have frozen right now, when I decide to cook it. Wound up getting an 8.5lb roast when I asked for 4-5lbs.

Yeah he did. I cringed. He made a couple of other small mistakes, mostly terminology. He pitched the yeast straight from the fridge into 87*F wort.

I'm the only meat eater in the house so things like roasts just aren't practical for me to cook. I wish they were, I like a good juicy roast but not enough to eat on it for 2 weeks straight.

I really don't get the vegetarian thing........

haha, I've never watched that before. So, there are two hop additions...one early on for flavor, the second towards the end for aroma.

Good to know.
