          Its time for Bocks and Oktoberfest brews to start showing up again.
          Up here Creemore Springs make a great Ur Bock.
          Carlsberg made a good tasting Bock but I haven't seen it in years.

            Rfhd69 I don’t have pickled asparagus but I did pick up green beans specifically for this. I’ll have one later this morning just before the game starts and I’ll fix the situation. I’ll keep the pickled asparagus in mind. Cheers 🍸

However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.

                Back at the beach town for a final week of smoking. Supplies are dwindling before we close up the house. My fancy vermouths (Dolin, Carpano Antica) are dating downward with good-quality and good-bargain, but one-note, Costco Kirkwood gin and whiskey.

                And the limes are so lame, blackened on the outside and almost fermenting on the inside, that I may hit the margarita mix that glows almost as green as the syringe in Re-Animator.

                  On my Japan trip, after-work drinking began with beer, the choice of the most senior person. So light! We like darker brews. Lovely spouse and I would swap glasses so I could finish off hers too, so we could then move on to our favorites.

                  I like cold, cloudy nigori sake. I'd always thought of it as sophisticated. It sure can cost extra in the States. But on our first outing, they laughed and said that Koreans got drunk on it. To them, that sake was less refined in two ways.

                If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                Placeholder

                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                Placeholder

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
