The 2019 season is just around the corner, and as we all make our final preparations to ensure that we - the fans - have done everything in our power to make solid decisions on the things most important on gameday: Bourbon Choice, Beer Choice, and Barbecue.
First up, Bourbon:
Since Eagle Rare has been - well,... a rare find for me this year, my go-to bourbon for this year will be Blade and Bow:
I usually drink my bourbon neat, but I have found that this one really opens up with an ice cube or two. This seems to be always in stock around us here in Leesburg.
Next Up, Beer
For the fall, I am about IPA'ed out. I usually start to resort to something a little more malty to ease myself into stout season. I'm going to carry on my tradition from last year and go to Bells Brown Ale.
This is by no means a double-fisting Edward Forty-Hands type of beer, but 2 or 3 during a game is no problem.
And finally, Barbecue.
This year I've really enjoyed making ribs and honing in on my recipe. I've resorted to the 3-2-1 method (3 hours smoke, unwrapped, 2 hours smoke, wrapped, 1 hour smoke, unwrapped and baste.) In a time crunch the 2-1 method works (2 hours oven, wrapped in foil, 1 hour grill to finish).
I've been toying with different sauce recipes, but my ribs get the same treatment - dash of salt and pepper and let the smoke do the work.
So TKP, what are your choices for this season?
