Grilled BBQ Beer Chicken and Apricot Flatbreads

  Let’s say you and I get into it over pizza. We hash it out over the best pizza we’ve ever had. We talk about Naples, and LA, and both agree that New York beats Chicago, unless you want a casserole, then Chicago pizza will do. And then I tell you that the best Ray’s […]

Blackberry Basil Belgian Ale Milkshake

I’m going to confess to you the least foodie thing I’ve ever done. A few years ago I was in Spain, I’d missed my fight out of Madrid because of an ill timed visit to the Prado, some churros and a bull fighting poster and I was stuck for an indefinite amount of time. I […]

  If there was any doubt about how much I like self-torture, you can defer to this: I’m writing another cookbook. My first cookbook, The Craft Beer Cookbook took four months and most of my sanity to write. And here I am, doing it again. Maybe it’s the post publisher amnesia, maybe it’s that I […]

Garlic Herb Beer Butter Roasted Potatoes

 Cowboys and brewers aren’t that different. I grew up on a farm, surrounded by cowboys and farms and it didn’t take long to notice how different their “job”  was from those 9 to 5′s that other people had. There were no days off, and this had nothing to do with the fact that ranches and […]

Grilled Beer Soaked Rosemary Potatoes (with a grill or without)

I’m not crazy. There is an actually practical reason to soak your potatoes in a beer brine before they hit the grill.  Potatoes are mostly water, held in by the starch.

Yogurt and Beer Marinated Chicken Skewers

  I’ve decided that the grill is officially open. Regardless of the weather, regardless of the time constraints, regardless of the lack of Meats on Sticks occasions in my near future. The grill needs to be open. Maybe it’s the catastrophic levels of stress in my life right now, maybe it’s my severe vitamin D […]
