    Great day in the booze world for me!

    Local liquor store was having quite the sale; several whiskey's and scotch's on sale. Got a regular and 2 rye Bulleit for 1/3 off, 2 Jameson at nearly half price, a couple Chivas for right at half off, and finally 2 Glenfiddich 15 for about 40% off. I normally don't drink Chivas but at half off I think I'll manage.

    The very first drink of booze that I can remember was Chivas 25yr old when I was about 10yrs old. I've been a Scotch drinker ever since. (My first beer was a sip from Mom's "Little Oly" when I was about 7.)

      My first sip of alcohol was Dad's Schlitz sitting on the end table while he was napping after working outside in the yard. I was about 8-10. Gosh, it tasted terrible. I almost spit it out. Then, I heard Dad chuckling.... Folks always liked Canadian whiskey, so I got a taste or two. But, it was Chivas that I liked as a late teen and college student.

        First beer was a drink of Budweiser at around 8 and I hated it, didn't drink it regularly until the Marines. First liquor was at 13 at a friends house while his parents were away, a shot of 151 that did not stay down long at all. 151 in the sinuses will put one off of sampling booze for quite some time.

            I don't drink much (honest!) but when I do, I prefer Bushmills Irish Whiskey (black label if I can find it). Jameson is fine as well, just not quite as smooth.
            Just don't tell my Irish Catholic family that I prefer the "Protestant" whiskey!

              Nice score! I've never seen such a liquor sale, didn't think it ever happened.

                John, I know someone was going to have to attend the sale and buy something. I appreciate you doing it and I applaud you on your selections. I know it was a nasty Job but, someone had to do it!!

                  It was tough, but a couple of Old Fashioned with that Bulleit Rye last night really helped me feel better about it!

                      Sometimes the LCBO will mark liquor down $1.00 maybe $2.50 and tell us the savings are a really big deal.
                      Our local store usually has as shelf of de-listed items were you can get some really good savings.
                      But 30-40% off will never happen here, quite simply 55-60% is HST and the gov't isn't giving up that money no way no how.

                          Yeah I've never seen a significant sale on liquor. Maybe with the exception of vodka...

                            Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                            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.

                            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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                            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!

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
