    I generally pick up whatever is in my eye line when picking up “essentials.”
    Vermouth OTOH…Noilly Prat hands down. Even if they are owned by Martini & Rossi.

    Yes actually, but there are only four seasons for G&Ts.

    I do enjoy a Beefeater martini.

    wu7y Reminds me of a poem, usually attributed to Dorothy Parker…though it seems unlikely that she said it, and also never wrote it down. Still, it’s humourous.

    “I like to have a martini,
    Two at the very most,
    After three I’m under the table,
    After four I’m under the host.”

    I tried Dry Fly gin once. They are a hometown brand about 4 miles from me. Didn't particularly care for it but still have it in my cupboard. Might need to give it another shot.

    Our usual go-to is Bombay Sapphire. But our favorite comes from a local distillery called Oakhurst Spirits in Oakhurst, CA, just south of Yosemite. Among the botanicals they use are wild juniper berries from Yosemite National Park. Apparently you're allowed to take a small quantity out of the park, and it doesn't take much for a batch of gin. The gin is excellent, as are all their spirits.

    Rieger's out of KC is pretty tasty. Tom Nichol of Tanqueray fame had a hand in developing this gin.

    Edinburgh Gin - https://www.edinburghgin.com. Had it when we visited Scotland a few years back. Looked for it all over the place and couldn't find it. My son was a member of a "booze by mail" club and was able to order some. One day on my way home from Colorado, I stopped in a liquor store in Cheyenne, WY and there it was. I now stop there every time I go through Cheyenne! I love the Christmas blend!

    I tend to keep Plymouth and Tanqueray around. I never really made a distinction between my favorite for martinis, mixes or with tonics. It all works for me.

    I do like Tanqueray Rangpur in the summertime when I usually drink more tonics and Tom Collins.

    Huge fan of Plymouth. Especially in martinis. As a mixer, I often reach for Beefeater.

    Kirkland gin is excellent and probably probably Gordon's or Tanqueray.

    I mean anything derived from grain can be compared to grain alcohol in its origin. Gin is actually derived from jenever/genever which is made in Amsterdam/Belgium. All of the stuff it that comes after is just flavor profile.

    Agree SmokinFool - so many bottles in across the board. Bourbon/whiskey, vodka, gin. Even beer - everyone is in the game.

    I know right? All this name dropping of craft gins. It's freaking grain alcohol people with a little wisp of flavoring. I've got a bathtub up stairs I'm thinking about making my own in. Maybe I'll post a naming poll for Troutman's Gin !!!!

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

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.
