As bad as it sounds I have actually seen every single episode of good eats and look forward to upcoming ones and his episode on brewing is what made me realize that I could actually make good beer at home. I have also learned ALOT from his shows because he doesnt teach you a recipe but instead he tells you why and how things work so you can make your own recipies.

Yep, this is why I like this guy. Plus, he explains how to actually go to the store and get the right stuff and ask the right questions.

Lets see one of the other celebrity chefs jump on a motorcycle and pull into some random dive and actually be able to intelligently discuss what they're cooking and how the source their ingredients.

Me too.

His rigged up smoker episode is well worth watching too. It inspired me to make a smoker out of 2 flower pots(not exactly per his instructions, but like I said, I was inspired) It worked incredibly well.

I wasnt trying to say anything bad about the guy but he seems so knowledgeable about most topics I was just surprised that he did make those mistakes.

I also like the show and watch it often

Damn it killian...GET OUT!!(just kidding) I think he was going out of his way to show that brewing was so super easy, that he missed a couple of things. If we could get word to him, he would probably do another episode. He is obviously running out of good subject matter. His next episode will probaly be on the often mis-understood and underappreciated art of making baby food.
