    drinking and cooking

    Should one drink and cook at the same time ? Anyone notice a correlation of drinking and cooking accidents ? When I say drinking, it means alcohol is involved.

    I've had a couple of accidents drinking while cooking, I accidentally ran low on booze.
    Cheers!

    I've seen no correlation - but - all of my accidents have occurred when I was stone cold sober. Maybe I should drink more.

    Good question George. I think drinking, in excess, impacts everything we do. I try and keep it sensible when I grill because I love my beer. I've never had a serious accident, but I've done a lot of ridiculous things like screwing up recipes, over grilling meat or burning the chicken, etc. Always come away a little disgusted with myself as a lot of the time the meat may have been expensive or a lot of prep time went down the tube along with the cook. I just try and keep a lid on it and keep it fun.

    As a homebrewer, I rarely fire up the grill or smoker without a beer. Once, I took my smoker to a benefit cook and felt lost without my glass. Cheers!

    Here’s a Beer BBQ Sauce recipe:

    ...and of course there’s beer can chicken:

    I'm a homebrewer also. And yes, I do drink while smoking...meat. (I quit cigarettes in 1990).
