Thought these would be great topics for the ot thread. If you have a smoker and live in the rochester area Price Rite has pork shoulder for .69 lb. I have an old, cheap, charcoal brinkman that I modded out but use only three or four times a year.

In regards to home brew, Northern Brewer is having a great sale, 20% off kits and free shipping. Their kits make very good beer. I have never been an all grain guy so I like the results I get from their kits. Not a huge home brewer but I have been brewing for 25+ years.

I tell you what Crush, you hit on 2 of my favorite things: Craft beer and smoking meat. Actually they may be #3 and #4 behind eating and drinking them lol We are both lucky to be in Rochester, the craft beer scene here is VERY good. You get out and about to sample the breweries?

I don't do the home brew thing but know of a bunch of the Rochester folks who do and I know there are some local based FaceBook groups dedicated to that.

i haven't been to as many breweries as I would like but I have been to a few. There is a place in Canandaigua, Three Huskies, that makes amazing beer. There is not a lot to see there but the quality is amazing. I love the brew house at gene see. I need to go to Three Heads. CBs and Rohrbach are old favorites.

Hear you on Genesee, their new beers have been AMAZING. And I assume you've been to their downstairs tasting room? $3 for a flight of 4 or 5 with all money going to charity, only can get 1 flight. Food pretty darn good too.

I'm very close to Genesee and 3Heads, although I don't care for what 3Heads offers. TripHammer in Fairport is excellent, Iron Tug, Rohrach an old fav of course. K2 opened in Webster recently and I've heard good things.

I used to live on Atlantic but the breweries weren't there then. The best neighborhood place was Carrols for Guinness.
I live the flights at Genesee and I agree that their beers have been really good.
Is Triphammer on the canal?

Walkable distance from canal, if I have my geography correct. New within the last 2 years. Couple of excellent IPAs, very good coffee porter that is seasonal.

Funny stuff!!!
Up until 4 years ago I had an financial interest in a company that makes commercial smokers for large food processors. We have a test kitchen with a small unit at our disposal to use anytime. We control temp and humidity and use real wood for smoke. We cold smoke cheese and Tofu and fish, as well as slow hot smoke chicken and the oh so yummy porks, ribs and briskets!!! Salmon is my favorite! Since we still have access to the kitchen. When done right nothing like it!!! As for beer, its a great time to be alive and like good beer. North Carolina is a top state for micro breweries. We are swimming with regional offerings!!!! my love for Irish beer still rules my buds!!! Took a trip to Ireland and visted Guiness and Smithwicks about 6 years ago and fell in love with all kind of offerings.
If your in a proper Irish Pub I implore you to try "KilKenny Irish Cream". Best beer I have ever tasted in my life!
Knicks1248: 1. Dolan should be more involved! 2. Why would any knick fan want pick 8, when that spot has a history of producing marginal NBA taken. (He prefers pick 9th instead)

Nice. My wife is a Scottish immigrant and her mother is from Ireland. Lots of family we could stay with if we make it back over.
Might be going with my son and brother in laws to the Wee Heavy tapping party at CBs next week.

My brother in law and I both were given gift cards to Irish Mafia Brewery in Bloomfield. We went this afternoon and it was awesome. The beer was very good. They only brew four beers at this point but they have local favorites like 3hds, rorhbach, warhorse, and others. Flights were $7 and the poor was heavy. We ate an appetizer, bought a growler and also bought four packs of their ipa which was discounted. My brother in law was over charged for the ipa 4 packs and they gave him an additional case of ipa. WTF. He didn't leave any with me but it was a great time. Worth your time stopping. It is at Toomey's Corner on 5 &20 right by Nedlow brewery.
