This was my covid shut down (part 1) project. Looks like we're headed back to another shelter in place... time to start brainstorming for shut down part 2 projects! I had a 3 tap keezer, and with one tap always dedicated to a hazy IPA, one to a kettle sour for my wife, and one … Continue reading 8 Tap Kegerator: Because of course I need 8 taps.
Cherry Smoked Pork Ribs
So this weekend I brewed a Hefeweizen that I'm going to be adding coconut flakes into after a week or so. I forgot to take pics, but I'll get a few after it's ready and make a post.

Makes sense I guess, but before I get to the pizza, I haven't been brewing too much lately since I am full up on most of my … Continue reading Pizza on the Kamado
Reverse Seared Tri Tip
We all hate those stupid blogs that have to write a stupid story about how their cow was raised by monks who massage their muscles all day long and you can't use any other type of ingredient otherwise it will suck - but if you can't get monk massaged cow then a regular prime cut … Continue reading Reverse Seared Tri Tip
Intro to my brewery & bbq
I'll get right to it - Never done this before so I'm just going to type and add pics as I find them. We'll start with the garage brewery. I'm in the process of planning a deck to put the Kamado Joe on, but I'll include a pic of her at the end. Brewery I … Continue reading Intro to my brewery & bbq
