    Bacon = Bad for you

    I am sure everyone is well aware of how awesome Bacon is (and yes it is deserving of a capital B). Who would have thought that it is bad for you as well? Look at the wonderful news article saying processed and red meats are 'probably' carcinogenic...

    Ashes from grill/smoker

    What do you all do with yours? Make sure they are cool and dump them somewhere in your yard? Do the same, bag them up and throw them in your garbage? Mix them with water and build a ash/mud fort? I use my woodstove a lot in the winter and smoke and grill with charcoal whenever I can and...

    Really clogged diptube

    Okay, I am going to admit I did something really really stupid. I had the brilliant idea to "squeege" out the inside of a diptube with a chunk of paper towel and an unfolded coat hanger. I got it maybe 6 inches into the diptube before the paper towel chunk bunched up and became stuck. Then I...

    Police Car Chases

    Having watched this chase I wonder. What is it that spurs people to attempt to flee from police during the daylight hours on a major road thinking they will get away? Especially when the helicopter...

    Going in on half of cow

    I think I have convinced my brother to go in with me on half of a cow. What cuts should I list as my preferred cuts? I'm not trying to screw him over our anything but figure that with my ability to sous vide(crock pot with temp controller and aquarium pump) and smoke(WSM Smokey Mountain 18.5) as...

    I am seriously considering buying a conical fermenter. I would like to be able to brew 10 Gallon and maybe a possible 15 gallon (not necessary) batches in it. I like what I see in the sSS brewing temperature regulating upgrade but am a cheapass and like to DIY though I am not yet a welder. I...

    Meet anyone - Who would you...?

    I have been throwing out those strange what if... style questions a bit recently with friends so figure I may as well throw a couple out here and see what comes up. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, at any point in their life, who would it be, and what would you do? Alternately...

    Dreams - Take one, Leave one

    Ok, so I kinda got the funny things you have heard about beer thread off topic (as if it ever really stays on topic) talking about dreams. I am one of those weird types who rarely remembers his dreams. I kinda feel that I am missing out on something special. Then again when I do remember my...

    Prepping for electric brewing

    I asked this in the electric brewing thread, but got no response. Maybe I can get an answer here. I am planning a kitchen renovation, and it is the room that leads on to the garage. Being that it is a deep garage and I can fit a car and a half in there, I am pondering possibly going...

    What beer should I pair with a pumpkin/sausage pasta dish?

    My girlfriend (recent acquisition) told me last night that she is trying out a new recipe and wanted to know if I wanted to try it with her. She asked if I could bring a beer that would go well with it. Unfortunately all I have to work with is that it is some sort of pasta dish with pumpkin...
