  1. Having grown up in Georgia and gone to school in North Carolina, I've always enjoyed a thinner, vinegar-based barbecue sauce with pulled pork. As Myron Mixon says, "you gotta have that tang!" This "Western Carolina"-style sauce retains the heavy vinegary character of traditional Carolina vinegar-based sauces, but adds a bit of ketchup to provide a little more balance, color, and viscosity. I decided to infuse the base sauce with some grilled honey-glazed peaches to add some natural sweetness and fruit character. I think the sauce has a nice balance of tanginess, spiciness, and sweetness. Here's the recipe: 3 cups of apple cider vinegar 1.5 cups of ketchup 0.5 cup of apple juice 1 tablespoon of crushed red pepper flakes 1 cayenne pepper (diced) 2 tablespoons of sugar 2 teaspoons of salt 2 teaspoons of black pepper A few pinches of barbecue rub A couple cloves of garlic (pressed/diced) 3 peaches Honey Combine all of the ingredients, except for the peaches and honey, in a pot over low heat. Cut the peaches up, glaze them with honey, and then grill them until the honey caramelizes and they get some nice grill marks on them. Then I just put the peaches right into the sauce, crushed them with a wooden spoon, and then let everything simmer together for about an hour. Then, I strained the peaches out of the sauce and added a couple more pinches of red pepper flakes to replace those that got strained out.
  2. The new DJ Shadow and Run the Jewels video for "Nobody Speak" is pretty amazing. Killer Mike and El-P both keep hinting on social media that RTJ3 is coming soon. I can't ####### wait. Here is some other stuff I've been feeling lately: Vince Staples - "Lift Me Up" Locksmith - "Black Hole" Goodbye Tomorrow - "2 Many" Schoolboy Q - "John Muir" Greydon Square - "Stockholm Syndrome"
  3. My sauce recipes are always imprecise because I tinker with them based on taste, but I'll try to keep track of what I'm doing tonight.
  4. I like the Kingsford Competition charcoal as well. I'm smoking some pulled pork tonight for a fantasy draft tomorrow afternoon. A couple weeks ago, I smoked pulled pork over hickory and peach wood and made a Western Carolina-style barbecue sauce that I infused with grilled honey-glazed Palisade peaches. I thought the peaches were a great seasonal addition to my base barbecue sauce for pulled pork. I think I'm going to do the same thing tonight.
  5. It was a great idea. Didn't want it to get lost amongst the great American cheese debate.
  6. You should definitely deploy a Slip 'N Slide for this barbecue. It's easy entertainment to keep the kids occupied while you are chatting up mom, and the kids will soon be asking mom when they can go back to NRJ's house to play.
  7. This isn't some broad from Tinder or girl from the bar at last call. It's his neighbor who he will be forced to see on a regular basis for the foreseeable future. There are long-term consequences to being too reckless in pursuit of carnal desires here. Of course, NRJ wants to have sex with her eventually, but the slow play is definitely the best move in this situation, despite the FFA's desire for a climactic AZ Ron-style barbecue ####fest this week.
  8. The easiest way to set your burgers apart from the average backyard burger is through a buttered, toasted bun. As soon as you pull the burgers off, braise the inside of the buns with some butter and throw them on the grill for a couple minutes until they are golden brown with some grill marks. Not only will your burgers will have better flavor, better texture, and better appearance, it will also show off a craftsmanship and attention to detail that women find sexy.
  9. That Rare Beer list looks awesome. Fundamental Observation, Ensorcelled, Hunapuh's, J. Wakefield, Stone verticals, and tons more.
  10. Thanks, man. Yeah, that is kind of what I was going for with the playlist. I wanted 90's rap songs from respected rappers that many casual rap fans would know and could play well at a party without whack pop party rap songs, but also a solid nod to the underground that would expose people to dope 90's rap that they may not know. My 90's playlist is inclusive of 2000 because I think it was a solid year of rap music that was 90's-esque. It's a little light on songs from 1990-1992 partly because it is before my time, but mostly because I think that most music from those years sound more like 80's rap than 90's rap to me. My biggest regret is that Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" is not available on Spotify.
  11. You guys should check out my 90's Rap playlist on Spotify. I might be biased, but I think it is the best 90's rap playlist on Spotify for true hip hop heads.
  12. I went to the Wicked Weed Colorado launch party last night at Falling Rock. I'm excited to see them hit distribution here, as I've been a big fan for years. I got to hang out with the founder and brewer, Walt Dickinson, for awhile last night. He's a really cool and nice guy. I also drank a bunch of Wicked Weed beers: Silencio - black sour with coffee and vanilla beans in bourbon barrels Genesis - Blonde sour with mango, papaya, guava, and pineapple in white wine barrels Resonare - Golden sour with plums in neutral wine barrels Fille de Ferme - Tart farmhouse with honeysuckle and orange peel Amorous - Sour IPA dry-hopped with mosaic, amarillo, citra in red wine barrels Parking Lot - Jester King collaboration farmhouse ale dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Huell Melon hops Dark Age - Russian imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels Marina - Blonde sour with peaches and apricots in wine barrels Recurrent - Amber sour with black currants in red wine barrels Freak - Imperial IPA I'm actually going to Asheville next weekend for my destination fantasy draft, so it was a great preview of what's to come. I'm planning on hitting the Wicked Weed Funkatorium, Burial, Green Man, Hi-Wire, Wedge, and Sierra Nevada while I'm there.
  13. Awesome, @TheAristocrat. My brother didn't get tickets yet, but would love to go if you have some extra tickets. I have to take you on my best of GABF tour this year.
  14. I've got my GABF tickets for Thursday night and Saturday afternoon. I can't wait for GABF week in Denver -- the greatest week of beer drinking in the world, in my opinion. There are always lots of GABF tickets for sale around the time of the festival if anyone else wants to think about coming out to Denver for the festival. I'll see you there @Sebowski!
  15. I've had a nice little afternoon of drinking: Black Project Ejector dry-hopped spontaneous sour AC Golden Plum sour brown aged in whiskey barrels with plums Weldwerks Juicy Bits IPA (one of the hottest new IPAs in the country; it just placed 8th in a blind tasting of 247 top IPAs in the country Pipeworks Coffee Break Abduction imperial stout with coffee and vanilla beans Odd13 Hopperella IPA Station 26 Tangerine Cream Ale with tangerine peel and vanilla beans Station 26 Juicy Banger IPA (placed 44th in the Paste blind IPA tasting)
  16. Some stuff I've been listening to lately: Rittz ft. Tech N9ne & Krizz Kaliko - "The Formula" Aesop Rock - "Mystery Fish" DJ Shadow ft. Run the Jewels - "Nobody Speak" Royce da 5'9 ft. Tiara & Mr. Porter - "Quiet" DJ Drama ft. Outkast - "The Art of Storytellin Part 4" Sincerely Collins ft. Rittz & Jarren Benton - "Light Work"
  17. Story has hit 2 of the top 3 longest home runs so far this season. Only Goldschmidt has hit a HR further this season.
  18. Sweet! I didn't realize you lived in OB. That's where I was leaning based on my research so far. I definitely want to get some beach time in. I'll be out there from May 12-15. I'd love to grab some beers.
  19. @Sebowski, I'm coming out to San Diego in mid-May for a beer vacation, and I'm trying to figure out what part of town I should stay in for easy access to some good breweries, brewpubs, and restaurants in town. If I stay in Ocean Beach, it looks like I could easily hit Stone - Liberty Station, Pizza Port Ocean Beach, and Modern Times. Or should I stay closer to the Gaslamp district or another part of town? I'm planning on driving up to Solana Beach one day for an Aesop Rock show and hitting Pizza Port Solana Beach, Lost Abbey: Confessional, Culture, and Toolbox the next day. Any SD recommendations are much appreciated!
  20. My friend from PA has been talking up that Victory Java Cask saying that it was really legit and his favorite Victory beer ever. Our beer palates are remarkably similar and we both love coffee-infused imperial stouts, so I definitely trust his opinion. We regularly trade with each other for stuff that we can't get in our local markets, and he is going to include some Java Cask in my next beer mail package. I'd pick some up if I were you, especially since it seems right up your alley.
  21. La Cumbre Elevated IPA (canned last week) Crooked Stave's distribution company has been bringing some amazing stuff to the Denver market lately. In the past couple weeks, they have brought in Melvin, Hill Farmstead, and La Cumbre. Even more reason to love Crooked Stave.
  22. I love Weyerbacher's Sunday Morning Stout. Based on the other beers you like, I can practically assure you that you will love it too. Maybe not quite on KBS's level, but it is certainly in the discussion. I would seek out more if I were you.
  23. Where do you find all these places serving up these beers? Is Denver just crawling with beer bars?There are a bunch of great beer bars in Denver, but Backcountry Pizza is actually up in Boulder, about 25 minutes north of Denver. Their tap list for their anniversary party was pretty ridiculous. I passed up on a lot of great stuff -- Pliny the Elder, a bunch of Russian River sours, Bourbon County Coffee -- just because I've had them all a bunch of times. There's always great beer events going on around the Denver metro area.I'll be in Denver in June, you might need to give me some recommendations.Remind me when you are coming out. I'll be sure to send you to the best places in town. Let me know if you want to grab a beer while you're in town.
