I love beer can chicken… It’s unorthodox grilling technique results in some of the most moist meat I’ve ever had. Also, I love that we get to combine steaming with grilling… two cooking methods that are almost contradictory by nature.

I wasn’t going to write a blog post tonight… I planned on cooking a simple dinner and getting some work done. A trip to the grocery store on my way home set into action a course of events that would change my plans… and possibly my life.

Throw away your favorite frosty beer mug… it’s doing your beer a dis-service… Trust me. Don’t trust me? Let me explain.
St. Arnolds is my favorite brewery… It’s the oldest craft brewery in Texas.

If you didn’t take the time to click the link, They made just over 4,000 cases, 72 barrels, and 35 casks. It’s a double IPA with about 8.9 ABV. This was distributed throughout Texas today. At the flagship Spec’s Liquor in midtown, lines started forming as early as 8:30am. Continue reading →
72hr Sous Vide Brisket…Brined overnight and cooked 63.7 for about 75hrs. REALLY GOOD! served it with 63.7 Sous Vide Egg, Brown Gravy and steamed rice. (My Sous Vide version of the Hawaiian favorite "Loco Moco") Shout out to Eleanor!
<Forgot to take pics of the Loco Moco, but trust me it was GOOD!>
More Red bull Leithin foam and vodka shots.
Did the brewery tour at St. Arnolds. Really impressive that the owner takes the time to personally give the tours. Fun times, good beer, and a great Texas company!
