    Perfect is the enemy of good...

    So Voltaire was right; or the Italian he was quoting was right.
    It's hot in Boston today. Like, 89 hot. Weeding and other garden/yard stuff, looking forward to my first shot at Clint Cantwell's Miso Wings, marinating since last night.
    And, a Gin and Tonic. Perfect weather for it. And me, well, it's gotta be perfect; all the ingredients cold. The Bully Boy Estate Gin is in the fridge. Rats, the tonic is not. So into the freezer with the Fever Tree tonic.

        I would say you fell a bit short of perfection.

        I have learned to place any glass bottles I place in the freezer in another container just in case the liquid in said bottle makes a run for it. (But it was a hard lesson to learn )

          Do that almost every time I speed cool a bottle or can. The worst is the wife says "don't forget you have a bottle in the freezer" of course I just say yah yah I won't. An then an couple hours later I am cleaning the freezer.

            Wings? Those wings. Unlike the tonic, they were indeed perfect, and I ate 'em before I could think to snap a picture.

          Oh but I feel your pain. But at least it was not Beefeater's London Dry Gin.

            Middle of the night one evening I hear an odd “phoomp” sound... I went downstairs check it out. Finding nothing amiss I went back up to bed. On returning home from work I went to get some ice from the freezer. It was FULL of “snow!”
            “What the...?” Turns out a can of 7-Up that I put in to speed chill was forgotten...it blew the top right off...and covered everything with a snow-like coating. LOL

            Did the same with a bottle of wine...and managed to push the cork out. Derp

              Is that how you make 7-up yours?
              I wonder if that would work for PBR?

              bbqLuv Not sure about PBR, but my father went to get ice once for my mother and “flooded” a small glass... Seems he forgot a Mr. Bones Speed-Chillin’™️ beer and it got caught by the ice dispenser helical...and burst...and poured out the shoot. LOL

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
          Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

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


          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.

          GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


          GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


          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.
