    Dickel is good stuff! An underrated gem IMO.

    My sampler was Breckenridge, Few rye and Wolfburn too. I really really like the Breckenridge! The Few rye was decent but I still like Dickel rye better. To me, the Wolfburn was a huge disappointment.

    Bump, anyone else interested?

    Anyone else a member? What do you think, love it, hate it? I've done a side by side on 2 bottles of Breckenridge, both their regular and their Reserve Blend. Good stuff. I think I favor the Reserve, a little more oak.

    What do you mean by "no longer sell Japanese beer in America?"

  • Bkhuna
    commented on 's reply
    Blame the Distributors and the Politicians that accept their bribes, uh, I mean, campaign contributions.

    Years ago, I had to drive from Florida to Georgia just to buy real Japanese beer because it came in 733 mL bottles. Florida had regulation on beer that said it could only be sold in 12, 16, or 32 ounce bottles. The big three didn't want any competition. The laws have finally be relaxed, but the point is now mute, because Kirin, Sapporo, and Asahi no longer sell Japanese beer in America.

    Wow, that's great. I never got a bottle of Whistle Pig. Lucky!

    CA has a lot of crap regulations and taxes, but alcohol is surprisingly one of the most relaxed. We can get just about anything (as long as the distributor sells to CA) anywhere - beer, wine, liquor are available at any market, gas station, you name it. Pretty much the only restriction we have is alcohol sales are prohibited between 2am-6am daily (that goes for store and bars). And yes, we have a couple local bars that are only closed from...you guessed it...2am-6am seven days a week!

    OK, so I got my first shipment from Flaviar, and I was pretty impressed. I got a 750ml bottle of Breckenridge Bourbon, and 3 sample sized bottles. One each of Breckenridge, Few Rye Whiskey and Wolfburn Single Malt Whiskey. I agree with Huskee's take on the Breckinridge - it is a really smooth bourbon. I have never been able to describe the different aspects of tasting - probably because I have smoked for years - but it is an excellent bourbon. Up there with my 2 favorites, Buffalo Trace and Four Roses Single Barrel. The packaging for the samples was pretty neat, they were nestled (always wanted to use the word nestled) in a round cask like container. My wife is not a bourbon drinker, but she likes whiskey, so we tasted the Wolfburn. Another hit - both of us really liked it. It was pretty smooth too. I think I am going to like this club; thanks again Huskee for turning us onto this.

    Both of mine came at the same time yesterday afternoon. Haven't had the chance to open them though. I think I am going to like the club - all of it looked pretty good.

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

the good one grill

The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

NK-22-Ck Grill

Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.
